Most famous for Edinburgh Castle and the famous Edinburgh International Festival and Festival Fringe, that celebrates the performing arts, theatre and comedy over a 3-week duration in August.

Another great attraction for Scottish tourism is the annual Edinburgh Hogmanay celebration. Originally an informal street party on the Tron Kirk in the Old Town’s High Street, it now covers 4 days of processions, concerts and fireworks, with the street party beginning on Hogmanay.

Edinburgh has 3 football teams that play in the Scottish Professional Football League: Heart of Midlothian, Hibernian and Edinburgh City. In women’s football, Hibs and Spartans play in the SWPL 1.

Given their multipurpose appeal as a family car and sensible commuter vehicle, it’s no great surprise to learn that the VW Golf is estimated to be the most popular car in Edinburgh, according to data provided between 2012 to 2018 by ownership and postcode.

What does a car battery do?

The car battery is responsible for powering all of the electric components in your car. As well as the lights, stereo, windscreen wipers, etc. it is also responsible for powering the ignition system that starts your engine and keeps it running.

How often should a car battery need replacing?

A car battery is to have an expected lifespan of between 4 to 6 years. This is dependent on several factors, for example, the quality of the battery, weather conditions, vehicle type, driving habits, and vehicle type.

The law, vehicle regulations, and your MOT

The physical condition of your battery will not cause your car to fail an MOT, but if the car won’t start, run or operate the electrical components properly because of your battery, then that will.

What happens when we replace your car battery?

  • Our efficient and fully qualified mechanics will inspect your battery for correct operation, signs of corrosion and will be load tested to ascertain its ability to retain charge.
  • Wherever required your battery will be replaced and you’ll be advised of any other connected or associated problems arising from its malfunction.
  • You will also be advised of any other parts, for example, the cables, that may need to be replaced for the best operation and health of your vehicle.
  • Once the battery has been replaced, our mechanics will test it thoroughly to ensure the correct running of your car and make any adjustments required for its premium operation.

What causes a car battery to stop working correctly?

Your battery is continually being charged by your car’s alternator while driving, so it’s only through damage or that it has reached the end of its operational life, that it will fail to hold its charge.

On occasions when there has been excessive electrical use without your battery being recharged, your battery will be drained. A drained battery will only require a recharge unless the battery is faulty and its failed operation was instrumental to the drain.

After prolonged use, a car battery can leak the acid that holds the electrical charge. This liquid will turn to a white or bluish powder where it dries, so is fairly easy to spot.

Eventually, a battery will simply reach the end of its life. At this point, it’s time to organise a replacement.

Symptoms of a malfunctioning car battery

If your car won’t start

If your car doesn’t start when you turn the ignition switch, especially when the engine doesn’t make any attempt to turn over, your battery could be flat.

None of the electrical components work

If the lights, fan, radio or any other electrical components in your car don’t turn on or operate, then your battery could be drained or damaged.

The terminals are corroded

If the terminals (connection points) on your battery are corroded, then your battery is likely to be damaged or worn out.

Your battery has powdery deposits on it

If there are white or blueish powdery deposits on any parts of the battery, this is a sign of acid leaking and incorrect operation of your battery.
