Are you looking for Car Battery Replacement in Reading?


The average lifespan of a car battery is 3 to 5 years, but several factors like weather- and road conditions, vehicle age, driving- and braking habits of the vehicle users etc. can influence a battery’s service life.

This is because it goes through the continuous charging and discharging phases and is exposed to external cold, heat, rain, etc. Therefore, it is imperative to understand the signs of a faulty car battery.

If you come across any of the following symptoms, get in touch with a reliable garage like Blue Tyres. Our well-versed mechanics inspect the issues thoroughly and advise for car battery replacement Reading if required.

Symptoms of dying batteries

Dim headlights

Dim headlights can mean, there is not enough power supplied to the bulbs. The battery and its connections need to be checked.

Clicking sound while turning on the key

A dying car battery fails to send power to the starter solenoid. This generates a clicking noise when the starter receives insufficient or weaker power from the battery.

Jumpstarting is only a temporary solution to this problem.

Stench of sulphur

The rotten egg smell inside the hood indicates a leakage in the battery. This issue demands an urgent check.

Bloated battery case

Has the battery case of your car bloated? This happens when the chemical components react with each other. Experts recommend an immediate battery replacement in such cases.

Slow crank

Ever noticed your engine crank slower than normal when turning on the key? This is a sure indication of a dying battery.
