Battery Sales Inc. Life servicing Free HAB Rockhampton

Battery problems solved. Battery charge rate tested, Battery life test, all free. Car Electronics need superior batteries to be trouble-free. We advise you.

Battery choice concerns the long life, reliability and protection of vehicle electronics and computers. Typically a cheap battery will soon kill the computers. So instead, invest in cheaper car servicing with a quality battery. We are happy to advise you on which battery best suits your vehicle.

The problem with car batteries is that they can deteriorate without showing any signs of impending failure. Often, the first thing you know about the problem is when your car finally fails to start – maybe at the most inconvenient of times. That’s a very good reason to get a periodic free battery check.


Car Won't Start? Have You Got a Flat Battery?

We believe in a proactive approach to keeping all your car systems reliable and low maintenance. Rather than wait for your battery or starter motor to malfunction, we help you stay ahead of any auto electrical and electronic system repair needs by having our technicians identify any potential problems, and address them before they become costly and potentially dangerous.

Don’t wait for your battery and electrical systems to fail!

You get into your car and turn the ignition key. The engine turns over, but sluggishly. It doesn’t want to start. You try again, several times, with no success. Finally, all you hear is a click when you turn the key. Your battery is dead, and you’re stranded.

Good reasons to buy your next battery here:

EXCLUSIVE: We are happy to advise you on the best battery brands suited to your vehicle at rock-bottom prices. We fit your battery for free, do an electrical system health check, test your charging system to ensure the correct output, and gift your lifetime free battery service.

Remember, price is what you pay - Value is what you get.

Your New Long Life Car Battery Has Arrived at Highway Auto Batteries.

Take care when choosing a battery based on price alone. A cheap battery is a lesser battery and that means it won’t stand up to the rigors of being the centre of your vehicle’s electron flow. To explain: Today’s cars are more electronic that mechanical and that means starting the engine is one of your batteries’ lesser tasks, that’s easy!

The critical job of the battery in a modern car is to provide stable flow for electrons that travel around operating the various components like brake controller, power steering engine management computer, oxygen sensor and many more. Your cheap battery will be the reason for expensive (read very expensive) electronic systems failure. A greedy battery shop salesperson may not even know about these things. They want to sell you a battery.

For every fifty dollars saved on a cheap battery, you may have to spend as much as three thousand dollars per electronic component to get back on the road again. So, deal with trusted professionals who work with and understand electronics and suitable batteries powering them. Book a free battery and electronics checkup now.

Car Won't Start? Is It A Flat Battery?

If your car won’t start then more than likely it’s your battery at fault. However, symptoms are the same for a number of causes so here is a rundown on what you can do yourself. Turn the headlights on and turn the key, if the lights go out then it’s most likely the battery is flat or has reached the end of its life or it's use-by-date if you like.

If there is no sound at all when you turn the key then maybe the gearshift hasn’t locked into the neutral or park positions thus invoking the safety interlock. Remember Highway Auto is only a phone call away when you need advice. (07) 4926 1303.

Buying a new battery? What's you priority, Performance & Reliability or price?

We can sell you a low-cost battery, but we don't have a low-cost electron stable long-life battery. As the saying goes, you get what you pay for, but with car batteries, the cheap battery will seep acid into the battery terminals, which will then corrode, and your car won't start.

Clean the battery terminals and begin the cycle over again. Or, you can let Highway Auto Electrics advise you on the most suited battery for the way you use your car. Although, again, there is a potential cost benefit here, and that is not to buy performance levels that you don't need. We can help you with that decision.

Does Your Car Battery Need To Be Charged?

If you turn your key and nothing happens, it’s likely you’ve got a flat battery. To avoid being caught out there’s some ways you can pick up the early warnings your battery might fail before it finally crashes.

  • Your engine cranks slowly and takes a while to start.

  • The ‘check engine’ light comes on.

  • The battery looks swollen, it’s leaking or it’s got low fluid level.

  • Your battery terminals are corroded

  • Your car is overdue for it's service.

Is Your Check Engine Battery Light On?

Your first response should be to have your car diagnosed by an approved repair facility. Highway Auto Diagnostics is the place to go for a fast accurate and honest appraisal of what has caused the warning system to activate.

Nothing strikes fear like your check engine light coming on. The symbol you’d like to ignore, but shouldn’t. This warning sign has the potential to keep a minor situation from becoming a major repair — so be sure to listen to your car when it tells you to check the engine.

When Your Car's Electronic Control System Speaks.

When it finds a problem in the electronic-control system that it can't correct, the computer turns on a yellow warning indicator that's labelled "check engine," "service engine soon" or "check powertrain." Or the light may be nothing more than a picture of an engine, known as the International Check Engine Symbol, perhaps with the word "Check."

In addition to turning on the light, the computer stores a "trouble code" in its memory that identifies the source of the problem, such as a malfunctioning sensor or a misfiring engine. The code can be read with an electronic scan tool or a diagnostic computer. You still need an experienced technician to perform the diagnosis to ensure that the cause of the failure is pin pointed so that the replacement components are not damaged again.

Now that sounds easy. However, the stored trouble code is not the end of the trail. It’s usually the beginning of the investigation into what specifically caused the malfunction, and this process needs more than a code reader to resolve. What it requires are high-level automotive diagnostic skills. If every faulty component identified by a fault scanner were to be replaced, the cost would astound you. However, when an experienced diagnostic Technician reads the codes, he may locate the actual fault the scanner cannot recognise.
