Batteries

At FT Auto Centre, we repair and replace faulty batteries with OE grade spares at the cheapest possible price points. Our battery repair service is hailed as the best in Kirton and its surrounding areas in Lincolnshire.

In other words, if we cannot repair your car’s faulty battery, it’s beyond repair, and you need to replace it with a new unit.

The battery provides power to the ignition as well as other electrical appliances of a car. In essence, your car will not start if its battery were to be at fault. As such, it is critical to maintain your car battery in Kirton properly and bring it to our garage for check-up and repairs at regular intervals.

Why does a battery fail?

Although it is one of the most resilient parts of a car, the battery may malfunction and even fail entirely under specific circumstances.

  • Extreme weather conditions are a battery’s worst enemies. If you drive in areas with extreme heat or cold, your car’s battery life will reduce drastically.
  • Using power-hungry appliances on the battery may drain it prematurely. Ideally, you should use such appliances (AC, heater etc.) when the engine is running.
  • The shelf life of a car battery in Kirton is usually between 5-7 years. It may last longer subject to proper maintenance, but you should get it checked at our garage after 5 years of service life.
  • Leaving the battery unused for an extended period is detrimental to its condition. Even if you don’t need it, take your car out for a spin once or twice a week to maintain its battery.

These are some of the common reasons why batteries malfunction. Sometimes the low level of water or other mechanical issues might be at fault. Bring your car for batteries repair in Kirton at our garage if you feel that its output is not adequate.
