Batteries and Alternators
Malvern Automotive Repairs offers quick and accurate car battery services. As part of our professional battery services, we will check your battery’s cranking performance, bad cell detection, and provide starter and charging system analysis.
Lack of battery care and maintenance combined with extreme weather can affect batteries that seem to operate without issue. While a battery may be fine in the hot days of summer, the cold weather can be trouble for batteries in poor condition. Battery maintenance is a year-round requirement, as it’s vital to catch a faulty battery before it lets you down.
It is always a good idea to have your battery tested before you buy a new one, as a car battery may be discharged for other reasons. If a battery is being undercharged, it will discharge the battery, especially if lights or other electrical equipment are being used.
A warning light will often illuminate on a car’s dashboard to indicate a problem. When a battery is overcharged, modern electronics systems can be damaged and fail. At Malvern Automotive Repairs, we stock a range of well-known brands with a 24-month nationwide warranty on most batteries fitted.
