Car Battery Testing in Ocean Grove 

How do I know if my battery is getting flat or low?

The most obvious sign of a flat battery is when your car won’t start, but modern motor vehicles can show symptoms like non-essential functions not operating correctly - things like: idle stop start function not working, or the car’s air-conditioning not working effectively.

Other signs you might need a new car battery include:

  • Vehicle is slow to start

  • Engine won’t start

  • Dash Lights work, but engine won’t start

  • Constantly needing a jump start

  • Film or corrosion on the battery

  • Cracked swollen or leaky battery

  • Rotten egg smell under the hood 

Don’t wait till you’re stranded and looking for a jump start — ask for a battery test today!

What’s the BEST way to know if your car battery needs replacing?

Have your battery tested at Auto Care Ocean Grove. We can test your battery and, if you need a new one, provide the best replacement battery for your vehicle. As a Repco Authorised Service Centre, we have access to high quality batteries to suit your vehicle, no matter what you drive.

Why choose Auto Care Ocean Grove for a battery test?

If you have concerns about your vehicle’s performance, visit a full-service workshop instead of a parts store for a battery test. This is because we use our experience and knowledge to take into consideration the whole vehicle and diagnose any deeper and related issues if needed. There is nothing worse than replacing your car battery only to find the problem lies elsewhere, except maybe being told your battery test is fine with no explanation for your ongoing issues!
