We all appreciate that your car battery is an essential and key component in your vehicle which is needed to power all the eve increasing electronic systems in a modern car. This will include components such as the starter motor, lights, wipers, air conditioning, central locking and your music music system. All of these electrical systems draw power from the battery. The battery itself is charged via the alternator (dynamo on some older vehicles), which is in turn activated by the timing belt.
As with any battery the constant cycle of charging and discharging means that the battery will deteriorate over time. There may be obvious signs before the battery lets you down or it may just give up the ghost. What is certain is it will eventually have to be replaced. If you have a suspicion that your battery is not performing as it should then you would be wise to as Grease Monkey Garage in Cheddar to complete a check and, if necessary, replace your battery.
If you suspect that the battery may not be at fault and another electrical component is drawing on your battery we can complete a full diagnostics check before replacing the battery if, for nothing else, to provide you peace of mind. If another component has been drawing charge, even if this is rectified, it may have caused lasting damage to the battery and, therefore, a replacement may be advisable. We offer excellent prices on car batteries in Cheddar.

We appreciate that the terminology used by different manufacturers to describe their vehicle service schedules can be a touch confusing. Our aim is to steer you in the right direction. Most manufacturer will provide a schedule for each type of service and we would recommend that you keep to these schedules, even in your vehicle is out of warranty. Failing which we would recommend a service every 12,000 miles or 12 months to improve your chances of trouble-free motoring.
Services are invariably described using the following language:
The latter will involve following the manufacturers schedule and specification in terms of service and parts. This type of service is essential if your vehicle is within the manufacturer’s warranty period.
But don’t worry, we will go through the various options available to you based on your needs, those of the vehicle, any specific manufacturer requirements and, of course, your budget. We can also offer a brake fluid service, air conditioning service and scheduled cambelt changes.

The key to reliable motoring is a good maintenance regime and dealing with issues before they become expensive. All vehicles are subject to wear and tear and an MOT only covers the legal minimum standard for the road and, inevitably, it does not cover everything on your vehicle. Early, pre-emptive repairs can often prevent much larger expenses later or a complete failure. Whether you have a family vehicle, business vehicle or operate a fleet, we will be more than happy to maintain your vehicle or vehicles.
