Car Battery

posted by Driver

Where in Salmiya or around I can get my car battery tested

I checked with one garage. He has some dynamo testing and it reads 14 with engine one and he says reading is normal but he says its not for battery

Another garage has SAME machine and checked with 14 reading while engine on and tells me car battery is little weak

Driver, battery is not the expensive part of car. If you are paying for battery test that is also problem. Last September, I have bought Forgo brand made in China 55D23L battery for my Nissan Maxima for 14 KD from Jleep from Amaron Shop owner Hasan +965 5131 8844. I sodl my old battery to same shop for 1.5 KD so total cost for me was 12.5 KD. Just for your info.

what were the signs that your battery needed replacement ?

Don't look for signs, except that there could be some difficulty in starting the car 1-2 days before it fails. Last time my battery died, I had done servicing for my car at the authorized workshop where they tested my battery and told me that its fine the previous day.

Buy a good quality jumper cable and keep it in the car in case of an emergency. Good quality ones from True Value etc. will cost you KD 12-15, substandard ones will cost you maybe KD 2. Another alternative is to buy a Lithium Jump Starter Battery, you don't have to depend on anyone.

If you feels something disturbance while starting the engine even a little delay usual than regular. Keep a spare battery in your car. When battery goes to dead you can feel the differences upto 1-2 days maximum. Better Change within a day.
