Vehicle batteries are not made to last forever. From minor things such as forgetting to turn the headlights off to battery damage, there are a number of reasons why you can end up with a flat battery. Jump starting it is an ideal temporary solution, but not one to adopt in the long run. If your battery’s constantly running flat and you don’t know why our flat battery service team can investigate the cause and find a suitable solution.

How Long Does A Battery Last?

Sometimes, you might have just replaced the battery on your vehicle only to find out that it’s flat again. While you may ask yourself how long should a battery lasts, there is no golden rule.

In broad lines, a new vehicle battery may last anywhere between five and seven years if used correctly.

Typically, if you struggle to start the engine with a battery that’s younger than 5 years, you probably charge it insufficiently. Simply take longer journeys to allow your battery to charge. If the problem persists, book our auto battery services to identify the issue. If the battery is older than 5 years, it’s safe to believe it needs replacement.

Common Battery Failure Causes

We are so used with getting into a vehicle to move from point A to B that we often take it for granted. Yet, how you use your vehicle can take its toll on the battery. At Garageservices4U, we have seen many drivers halving the lifespan of their batteries due to improper use. Here are some of the most common battery failure causes:

· Not using your vehicle for a while or using it only for sporadic short journeys
· A light or stereo being left on
· Problems with the vehicle’s charging system
· Not charging your battery completely
· A faulty component
· Faulty battery

Apart from the faulty battery, all the other causes can be combated by using your vehicle properly and performing periodical maintenance checks.

At Garageservices4U, our vehicle battery service team can inspect your battery and advise on proper usage. Our repair specialists are also experts in vehicle diagnosis, so regular checks can help you identify all potential issues before they become real problems.

Vehicle Battery Health Test

There are numerous things that can cause a vehicle breakdown, not necessarily a flat battery. That’s why our qualified technicians always perform a vehicle battery health test to figure out how to get you moving again. The various test results can be:

· Good battery: Your battery is in good condition and not the reason for your vehicle’s breakdown. At this stage, our highly trained mechanics will conduct further investigations to identify the real cause.

· Bad battery cell: Vehicle batteries consist of several 2-volt cells. If one is defective, you will have to replace your battery with a new one.

· Replace battery: A very straightforward test result. There is no in-between. You need a new battery. Period.

· Needs charging: Your battery is in good condition; it just needs a full recharge. It might have gone flat due to your vehicle lights or a stereo forgot running while the car was parked. When we get this test result, we will run a full check to see what drained the battery, then simply recharge it.

· Consider replacement: Your battery is still working, but it’s about to die anytime soon. Based on how you use your vehicle, our technician may be able to give you an indication on how much life it still has and how to change your battery if you don’t want to return to our workshop.
