Hybrid Battery Repair

In some cases, A1 Motor Group can repair your hybrid battery instead of replacing it. The repair process consists of reconditioning all the cells in the pack and replacing bad cells with good matching cells. Repair costs will vary based on the number of cells replaced.

The A1 Motor Group team are highly committed professionals who take care of everything. In turn this not only gives you peace of mind but also top-level results.

Hybrid Battery Reconditioning

A1 Motor Group Hybrid battery reconditioning service can save you money by reconditioning your failing Hybrid Battery. This will not only save you money but also extend your battery life.

Hybrid battery reconditioning combines the charging and balancing process, with deep discharging, to reverse the aging process and recondition the battery. By doing so, this process breaks down crystal formations and voltage depressions, which form in the NiMh battery’s modules or cells.

Auxiliary Battery Replacement

Like all batteries, auxiliary batteries will eventually wear out or fail. When this happens, they will need to be replaced. Here at A1 Motor Group we have the facilities and technicians available to provide you with a full auxiliary battery replacement service.

Points to keep in mind about auxiliary batteries:

  • Auxiliary batteries can be checked during maintenance, but it is necessary to use a garage with technicians familiar with the setup of your vehicle.
  • Auxiliary battery failure generally does not prevent you from driving, but it will create complications such as accessory functions not working.
  • Battery size, location, and cost can vary quite a lot from one vehicle to another.

 Auxiliary Battery replacement process:

  • Accessories are removed as needed for access.
  • The faulty auxiliary battery is disconnected and removed.
  • The auxiliary battery connections are cleaned, and a new auxiliary battery is installed.
  • Any accessories that were removed for access are reinstalled.
  • The auxiliary battery is tested for operation.
  • The vehicle is tested to ensure proper operation of the auxiliary battery.

Most auxiliary batteries have a lifespan of about five to seven years. A failed auxiliary battery may not prevent your vehicle from driving, but it can cause a lot of complications, including important accessories malfunctioning or not working at all. A failed auxiliary battery can also put additional strain on the rest of your charging system components.

If in any doubt at all, contact A1 Motor Group as soon as possible.
