FS Tyre and Service Centre can offer a wide range of car batteries and leisure batteries.
The average life expectancy of a good quality battery is 5 - 7 years, but this will depend on many factors such as the vehicle not being used for long periods or being mainly used for short journeys.
There are usually no warning signs that your battery is about to fail, but when your battery gets older you can get it checked with us.
Our cold temperatures in winter reduce the performance of your battery which, coupled with the extra work required to run heaters and lights during this season, mean that the majority of battery failures occur on cold winter mornings
Long hot spells are the leading cause of corrosion for car batteries which can lead to battery failure, so summer is also a time when battery failure can occur.
The battery is the source of all electricity in your car.
It powers the starter and ignition; it supplies extra power when needed and ensures a smooth flow of electrical energy. To ensure your car battery performs reliably at all times, it is essential to maintain it properly.
