Your New Long Life Car Battery Has Arrived.


Take care when chosing a battery based on price alone. A cheap battery often means expensive (read very expensive) electronic systems failure. The battery is the electrical system safety valve to put it in simple terms and the ultimate protection for computerised automotive systems. Remember, steering and brakes are now controlled by computers. A cheap battery could turn them into toast.

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.

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.

What's Your Battery Priority, price or Reliability?


We can sell you a low cost battery but we don't have a low cost 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 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 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.

Does Your Engine Shut Off When You Stop at Traffic Lights?


And restart as you press the accelerator? You have a Start-Stop system which was designed as an assist to reduce exhaust pollution. The down side to this is:

Your environmental contribution comes at a cost. You are now locked into a more expensive and complex battery system which demands a special type of battery, fit a cheaper or incorrect one and it will only last a matter of weeks. Call Steve for further information and assistance: (07) 4926 1303
