Our expert insights into car battery replacement & fitting

What is a car battery?

The car battery is responsible for powering all of the electric components in your car. This includes the:

  • Starter motor

  • Radio/speakers

  • Air conditioning

  • Electric windows

  • Car alarm

Without a functional car battery, none of these features will work. And worst of all, you won't be able to get your car to start without battery power.

How to know if your car battery needs replacing?

One of the most common signs that you need a battery change is if your car struggles to start. This often manifests as a prolonged clicking sound, indicating that the engine is taking longer than usual to fire up.

How to get an expert opinion on whether your battery needs replacing, or just a recharge?

Our efficient and fully qualified mechanics will inspect your battery for correct operation, signs of corrosion and it will be load tested to ascertain its ability to retain charge.

Hey Fixter, how often should a car battery need replacing?

The lifespan of a car battery is between 4 to 6 years. This is dependent on several factors: the quality of the battery, weather conditions, vehicle type, driving habits, and vehicle type.

Our reviews

Takes a lot of stress away

I would definitely recommend this company: knowing someone was keeping an eye on everything to make sure I wasn't being overcharged for parts and labour takes a lot of stress out of having the work done. I felt really well looked after. Thank you Fixter.

Kathleen Hodge, West Yorkshire

Excellent service

Excellent service. On time to pick up my car & drop it back. Full service cost £179, main dealer quoted me £700-lots different!

Muhammad, Birmingham

Total game-changer!

Just had my MOT done through Fixter for the first time. It took about 5 minutes of my time in total to book, hand over the key, and get it back when the car was returned. So I was able to carry on looking after my 2 year old. Total game-changer!

Oliver Woodford, London

No need to drive to a garage

Can't get more convenient than someone turning up, taking the car from the house for its MOT and returning it a few hours later. No having to drive to a garage (often miles from anywhere or in the middle of an industrial estate) or hanging around waiting.

Darren, Pontefract

I literally cannot fault them

This is the 3rd time I have used Fixter and I recommend to everyone. It makes getting an MOT super easy for me. Everyone I speak to on the phone is incredibly helpful and polite, and they seem to be the most cost effective. I literally cannot fault them.

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.

What's the difference between an electric car battery and a petrol/diesel car battery?

Petrol/diesel car batteries are small, lead-acid batteries designed to provide a quick burst of energy to start the engine and power accessories, whereas electric car batteries are large, lithium-ion batteries that store significant energy to power the vehicle over long distances.

Electric car batteries are much higher in capacity, weight, and voltage compared to petrol/diesel car batteries. Additionally, electric car batteries have sophisticated management systems and longer lifespans, but they require external charging infrastructure.

Jaguar

Jaguar is the luxury vehicle brand of Jaguar Land Rover.

Jaguar first appeared as a brand in 1945, when SS Cars Ltd. changed its name at a shareholder meeting; the company went on to have a variety of ownerships and mergers, including those with British Leyland, Ford and Tata Motors. After buying both Jaguar and Land Rover from Ford, Tata Motors combined both to create Jaguar Land Rover in 2013.

This executive British luxury brand currently has 360k vehicles on the road in the UK. Given their matching luxury price tag, it would be acceptable to think that the numbers would remain a steady constant, yet the marque has shown consistently growing numbers since the mid-1990s.

This could be partly due to recent fresh marketing strategies, targeting younger professionals to boost the sale of units, rather than relying on the older, executive drivers the brand previously associated with.

High-end, luxury executive motoring

The RRP of their cheapest model, the Jaguar E-Pace, hits the market at over £29k, and as each model brings something different to the range, their prices peak with the standard level Jaguar XJ starting at £65k. That’s before you begin to choose from the mass of customisations options, available at an added cost when building the finished specification of your car.

Jaguar: high-performance sports cars

There’s a lot more to a Jaguar than luxury upholstery and the famous badge on the grill.

Throughout history, Jaguar has been instrumental in providing high-spec indulgent sports cars; they are a combination of opulent luxury, cutting-edge technology, sporting dynamics and performance. Jaguar makes cars that can take you from 0–60mph in under 4 seconds with top speeds of over 200mph, but without any compromise to comfort and functionality.

An important addition to the Jaguar line-up was made in March 2018; the Jaguar I-Pace was their first electric car, and an SUV to boot. A bold decision to introduce new fuel technologies into a relatively new and growing model type, this was their car to compete against the Porsche Cayenne and long-established Range Rover.

Which other factors could lead to a battery replacement?

Leaving the radio or air conditioning on

If you leave your car radio, air conditioning or other electrics on overnight, there's a good chance that the battery will die. At that point, it's possible that a recharge is all you need. However, you may need to call out for a mobile mechanic in order to receive a mobile battery service, so try not to let this happen!

Not fitting the right battery

It's super important to make sure that you select the right battery for your vehicle. Otherwise, it's likely to drain more quickly or, worse, it can cause damage to other components of your engine.

Older cars or batteries

The simple fact of the matter is that if you have an old car battery, or just an old car, you'll run of juice more quickly. If your car battery is flat, it might not be a fault, it could just be age.

Other defective car parts

Problematic alternators and other engine parts can cause a total battery failure. That's why when we fit a new car battery, we'll check to make sure that things are running smoothly first.

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 during a car battery replacement service?

  • If 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 vehicle and make any required adjustments.

Seven other signs that your car battery needs replacing

If you're experiencing any of the following issues, there's a good chance you're going to need a new battery for your car.

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.

A swollen battery case

A bloated or swollen battery case indicates that your battery is overheating. This could be due to overcharging or a fault within the battery itself.

An unpleasant smell

A rotten egg smell from the battery suggests it's leaking sulphuric acid, and a solid indication that the battery is dying.

Your dashboard battery light is on

If your dashboard battery light is illuminated, it might be the only warning before your battery fails. Driving with this light on, especially on a long journey, is risky as it could indicate a dead battery, faulty alternator, or wiring issue.

Common questions about booking at Fixter

Common questions about booking at Fixter

Who is going to drive my car?

All of our drivers are fully insured and your vehicle is always protected.

We put our drivers through rigorous vetting and training before they are able to drive your vehicle. All of our drivers must have at least 3 years of driving experience, hold a clean driver's licence, be over the age of 21, capable of driving both manual and automatic vehicles and pass a criminal background check.

Your vehicle will be assigned to a driver who is responsible for collecting it from your home, delivering it to the garage and returning your vehicle once all work is completed.

Sometimes we might coordinate with a garage for them to send their own driver to collect your vehicle. In this instance, you are protected as you would be if it was a Fixter driver. 

What garage will my car go to?

One of our in-house mechanics will factor in the make and model of your car, as well as the work that needs doing. They will then allocate your booking to the most appropriate Fixter garage in your area, and we’ll email you to confirm.

Here’s why only 1 in 20 garages pass our selection criteria:

  • We only choose garages registered as a Limited Company, with a minimum of 3 years of trading.

  • We assess each garage's various established affiliations (e.g. Bosch / Unipart / Garage).

  • We perform an online audit: Fixter only selects garages with at least a 4 star customer rating.

  • We make sure to visit each garage in person. Our in-house mechanics evaluate the quality of equipment, staff qualifications, capacity, and technical capabilities of selected servicing centres. Fixter only works with garages which strictly use manufacturer-equivalent parts.

  • After all requirements are fulfilled, we negotiate preferential terms with each selected (including parts, labour, oil, and MOT test rates), so we can pass it along to our customers.

What parts will be used?

All parts used in repairs and services carried out by Fixter are either manufacturer parts or equivalent. This guarantees that only the best quality parts are used in your vehicle. We offer a 12-month warranty, meaning that should anything should go wrong with the parts or labour we’ll take care of it, free of charge. 

How and when do I pay?

We take your card details when you book online, but nothing is charged to your card until all the work has been approved by our in-house experts, and satisfactorily completed.

No extra work will be carried out without your consent. If additional work is required, one of our in-house experts will call you to walk through any diagnostic reports, recommendations or additional quotes from the mechanic working on your car. We check every quote to make sure the work is required and has been fairly priced.

Note: If you need to update your payment details to pay for your booking, the team will send you a secure link to add the new card details.

How does the money back guarantee work?

If your car fails its MOT at one of our garages, but you believe that your car should have passed, you'll have the option to take your car to another garage to do a new MOT test. If your vehicle passes the MOT at another garage, we’ll refund you for the original MOT test that you carried out with us. Collection and delivery fees are non-refundable.

How does the Fixter 12-month warranty work?

All Fixter bookings are covered by a 12-month warranty on parts and labour.

If there’s a problem (with either parts or labour) up to 12 months after your booking date, we’ll sort it out for you, completely free of charge.

Just email support@fixter.co.uk or call our team on 0330 808 9527 and we’ll take care of it.

Note: this doesn't apply to an air con regas as leaks can occur at any time.

Can I cancel my booking?

We understand that things change.

If you need to cancel or change your booking, please let us know asap. Our agents spend time finding you a top-rated garage, which is then booked to take care of your vehicle. In many cases, parts are ordered in advance. As a result, we operate a 72-hour cancellation policy. If you have a confirmed booking with us and need to cancel within 72 hours of the appointment, a cancellation fee of £20 may be applied.

We want to avoid that so our agents will work with you to try and find a new appointment instead. To discuss changing or cancelling a booking, please email or phone on 0330 808 9527.

Our team works Monday to Friday from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm.
