Technology advancements mean changing a car battery has become more complex than it used to be. Simply replacing the battery is no longer an easy task and in some cases requires specialised tools. Here at the RAC we pride ourselves on keeping up to date with the latest technology to ensure you receive expert service.
One of the tools we use is a battery registration tool. This informs the cars computer that a new battery has been installed and ensures the electrical system is reset to its correct state. If your car is fairly new or has stop start fuel saving technology then the chances are this tool will be required for installing a new battery.
Batteries that are not installed and configured properly can:
- Potentially have a shorter life due to over or under charging.
- Cause damage to your car's electrical system resulting in costly repairs if left unresolved.
For these reasons, we recommend getting your battery replaced by experts who can install your battery according to vehicle manufacturer's guidelines.
We offer a convenient 24/7 delivery and professional installation service as well as a wide range of batteries that last.
