MY BATTERY ISN’T CHARGING?
All vehicles have a built-in charging system that will provide electrical power to the car once it is started, along with charging the battery. Problems with this system can lead to the vehicle battery not being charged and will result in frequent need to manually charge the battery.
Faults in the charging system would usually be indicated by the electrical system warning light on your dashboard. Many new vehicles include a smart electrical management system. This manages the use of electrical items in the car, load on the system and battery charge condition to ensure the battery does not “run flat”, is not overcharged and maintains its lifespan. These systems may also reduce the load on the electrical system by switching electrical items off in the car including radios, air conditioning and other ancillary systems. Continued activation of the smart management systems and turning components off to conserve charge would indicate a problem and should be checked.
Your battery charge and general condition are checked during the routine servicing and in addition, any faults logged in the management computer would be identified, where applicable.
A replacement battery for an average vehicle would range from £60. However, larger vehicles and diesels often require higher capacity batteries and these would be more expensive.
