Battery check & inspection battery fitting Wangaratta

Your car battery is the only power source your car uses to get started. Flat or faulty battery is one of the most common causes of breakdowns, so it is reasonable to keep your battery in top working condition. Even with the engine not running, the battery provides necessary power to vehicle's electrical components and acts as voltage stabilizer for the whole electrical system. Your car battery, charging system and alternator should be inspected at least every 12 months at your local Repco Authorised Car Service mechanic.

Our simple but effective battery test includes checking your car's charging system, voltage output and the charging rate of the battery. The battery inspection performed by our electrical mechanics will indicate the condition of your battery and advise whether it needs to be swapped for a fresh one, by comparing the results with manufacturers specifications to check if the battery failure is imminent. Should your car battery fail, our workshop carries a large selection of batteries for cars and light commercial vehicles ready to fit.

Test your battery regularly, including when you have your car serviced, before long trips or after it's been recharged. Remember to always wear rubber gloves and goggles whenever you access your battery!
