How a Battery Inspection works with My Auto Shop:


Our mechanics will load test your battery, as well as check the charging system of your vehicle, including the output of the alternator, and quote on necessary replacement or repairs if needed.

When your battery will not hold a charge its often as a result of a:

  • Bad Battery Cell
  • Low Water Levels in the battery
  • Issue with the Alternator
  • Corroded Battery Cable
  • Loose Alternator Belt
  • Parasitic Drain

Popular services linked to a Battery Inspection:

Horn Replacement

Your horn is your best friend when you want to alert someone to the error of their ways. If it is broken you’ll need to replace it, not just for the safety of other road users but also because it’s required for a warrant of fitness.

Throttle Position Sensor Replacement

The throttle position sensor is a small device that tells your throttle body how much pressure you’re applying to the accelerator pedal. This means that the right mixture of air/fuel is put into the engine and the car accelerates at the rate you want it too.

Window Regulator Replacement

Your window regulator is the wonderful piece of equipment. It’s what makes your window roll up when you pull the button and roll down when you press it. If you’re someone who likes the windows down in summer, then it’s your best friend. If you don’t like the windows down in summer… What are you doing? Due to the amount of usage combined with the moisture and grime, your window regulators do wear out over time.

Starter Motor Replacement

When you turn the key (or press the start/ stop button) magic happens… well nearly. What's actually going on behind there is thanks, in no small part, to the engine's starter motor. A starter motor is a small electric motor attached to the engine’s flywheel, which when engaged, helps turnover the engine until it fires up. This rotation is what bursts your engine to life. Once the engine is running the starter motor returns to its hibernated form, waiting for the next time you need to start your car."
