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 for 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 cheap battery shop salesperson may not even know about these things they just want to sell you a battery. An example is, 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 to power them.

Highway Auto Batteries has been in the battery business since July 1966. Our real name is Highway Auto Electrics but for advertising we link the product to the name. You are in good hands dealing with people of integrity, knowledge and customer focus. Give us a call when you want advice on a battery for your car, caravan or 4WD.

Car won't start? 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. We get what we pay for as the saying goes but with car batteries the cheap battery will seep acid to 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 Highways advice you on the most suited battery for the way you use your car. 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.
 

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 doesn't it? The stored trouble code is not the end of the trail, in fact 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 is high level automotive diagnostic skills.
