The car battery is the “heart” of your vehicle, not only starting the engine, but powering your on-board auxiliaries such as the air conditioning, GPS, stereo, lights and the vehicle’s computers.
Our Car Battery Service involves using the latest battery diagnostics to test your battery. Our simple but effective battery test includes checking your car’s charging system, voltage output and the charging rate of the battery. While batteries should last around 5−7 years, car battery replacement is often necessary earlier than that due to damage from corrosion, water loss, high temperatures and vibrations.
Southern Cross Automotive Repairs will always give sound advice on the right battery for your car based on make and model and the driving conditions you commonly experience. If you car is having a problem starting or your electrical system behaves suspiciously, call into our centre now for a comprehensive battery test.
