Are you looking for Batteries Services for your vehicle?


From starting a car’s engine to powering all the electronic components, batteries play a crucial role in a vehicle’s mechanism. Without a fully-functioning battery, car owners will not be able to start the ignition system or turn on the lights or use the windscreen wipers.

If you pay attention to the tell-tale signs of a failing battery, you can save yourselves from being stranded in the middle of the road with a dead car battery.

At Stewart and Smart, we have trained professionals who can diagnose the underlying causes of a failing battery and advise accordingly. We have an extensive collection of car battery Milnathort from the leading brands including Bosch, Yuasa, GP Batteries, Varta etc.

    When should you opt for a battery replacement?

    Every car battery has its own lifespan and generally lasts around five years (if maintained properly). But in most cases, batteries require a replacement after the 3-year mark.

    Also, several external factors account for a reduced life span of this essential car component.

    What causes a car battery to malfunction?

    Vehicle batteries remain charged by reusing the energy generated from driving.

    A lot of short trips, for example, prevent the battery from recharging, which can put a strain on the system. You also shouldn’t leave the car lights or other electronic devices on if you aren’t driving. Apart from that, a bad alternator can also lead to battery failure.

    What are the signs of a failing car battery?

    If you come across the following issues, please contact Stewart and Smart for a thorough inspection and replacement.

  • A slow engine start
  • Batteries require energy to start the engine. A dying battery cannot harness adequate energy, which in effect, compels the engine to crank more slowly than usual. A bad starter or alternator may seem to be the troubling factor.

  • Clicking sound on turning the key
  • If you hear a clicking sound while turning the ignition key, this indicates that the required energy to start the engine is not there. In such cases, either you need to undertake a jump start or you need car battery replacement Milnathort to resolve the issue.

    Please get in touch with us for a prompt solution.

  • Dim headlights and other electrical issues
  • Batteries are responsible for powering all the electronic components in a vehicle – from starting the headlights to radio and other accessories. If these components are malfunctioning, you must opt for a battery replacement from a professional service station.

  • Foul rotten egg smell
  • Have you noticed a rotten egg smell coming from the engine bay? This mainly happens when the battery leaks fluid. Be sure to take this issue seriously and contact us at your earliest convenience.

  • Swollen battery case
  • Under extreme hot or cold conditions, batteries can swell or crack. If car owners notice misshapen or swollen batteries, it is a clear indication that the component is not functioning properly.

    Apart from these signs, if you notice corroded battery terminals or there are frequent engine backfires, you need professional automobile services.
