Flat or Faulty Battery
Problems with the battery are one of the main causes of vehicle breakdowns. These are often caused by poor connections or short journeys. If you don’t make many longer journeys, your battery won’t have chance to charge.
If your car struggles to turn over, takes longer to start or the battery warning light comes on, you likely have a flat or worn-out battery.
Modern vehicles have a range of computer systems and electrical circuits. Blown bulbs and fuses as well as faulty wiring can cause issues. When you come to our trusted independent garage from Erith for car servicing, we use diagnostic tools to identify any problems.
We carry out repairs and servicing to ensure your car operates as it should and as BMW and Land Rover specialists, we are fully trained to deliver solutions for these complex systems.
If you have a manual car in Erith, the clutch cable comes under a lot of stress. If you notice a change in the way the clutch feels, come and see us as soon as possible.
As well as manual repairs, we provide automatic gearbox repairs with high-quality parts. To minimise the risk of damage, we recommend a periodic mega flush to keep your transmission in good condition.
Starter motors are robust, but they fail eventually. Generally, you’ll only notice faults when your vehicle won’t start. Regular car servicing is the best way to maintain the starter motor and prevent any problems.
