Auto Battery Repair Service

How much does a Auto Battery Repair cost?

It depends on the type of car you drive and the auto repair shop you go to. Our mechanics are mobile, which means they don't have the overhead that repair shops have. They provide you convenience by coming to your home or office.

What are auto batteries and how do they work?

Auto batteries are used by cars as a course of electrical power that runs the electrical components of the system liketheradio, lights, alternator, starter motor, etc. If the auto battery is not charged sufficiently, then none of the components will function and the car will not start. If your battery appears to have lost the charge, you can carry out a battery boost to recharge it.

If the battery is dead, getting the car started and taking it to a mechanic will be a challenge. Luckily with InstaMek we send over our expert technicians to your place to perform auto battery repairs and other required services.

Sign your need Auto Battery Repair?

  • Auto battery repair or replacement is definitely necessary if your car doesn't start. Every car has a specified battery to provide power and this capacity is known as amps rating. With time as the battery ages, the actual amps which the battery can supply decrease from their original state. When the cranking amps fall below a certain threshold it becomes difficult to start the vehicle.
  • When you see charging system light illuminated. Should the charging system or battery light appear illuminated, a mechanic needs to be called immediately to perform basic tests in order to determine if auto battery repair or replacement is needed.
  • When the electrical components stop working. Once a battery starts to fail and the voltage drops, the electrical components of the vehicle can malfunction like security systems. If you experience this issue, its recommended to get your battery tested and auto battery repair done.

How to perform Auto Battery Repair?

  • A temporary source of power can be installed to avoid the possibility of losing stored data in the PCM when the battery fails. When the battery is entirely dead, this step is not necessary.
  • The negative cable of the vehicle is removed from the battery, followed by the positive cable. The tie down system of the battery is loosened and the old batter is then removed.
  • Wiring and cable ends are checked to ensure there is no corrosion. In several cases, corrosion can be extreme and the cable need to be replaced and with the wiring repaired.
  • The battery is checked and repaired. Then the system is reinstalled. An anti corrosion compound is applied to the terminals of the battery. The positive terminal is reconnected followed by the negative terminal.
  • Some models like Audi, VW, and BMW require PCM programming to input battery parameters. This step is carried out by using a specialized scan tool and is essential in maximising battery life and prevent malfunctions in the electrical system.
  • Output is measured by starting the vehicle and its compared against the factory OEM specification to make sure that the new battery is recharged properly. The charing output is generally in the range of 13.8 to 14.8 volts but the exact specifications vary by the type and model of the vehicle.

Is it safe to drive without Auto Battery problems?

You can drive but if you have a weak battery, there is a chance of your battery drying and you getting stranded somewhere. A damaged battery can also overload the alternator and can adversely affect the operation of the electrical system including the shift interlock and security system, hence auto battery repair is recommended.

I was blown away by the knowledge and skill my MEK presented me with. My truck had power to all systems except the starter. I had tried banging it but it didn't go. When MyMek arrived he did a diagnostic before replacing the starter. The tests he did I had never seen. And thorough.Even if it meant crawling under the truck and back again for a small adjustment. In the end he saved me the cost of a... starter. And I got a brand new battery. That was my problem. Not enough cranking amps. I was beyond happy and Alex is a rock star!!read more

When the battery in my car died I called Instamek and they had a mechanic at my house the same day to replace my battery. Todd was fantastic! All in it was $266 which actually saved me money as I would have had to have my car towed to a shop. I will be using Instamek again!

The mechanic that came was very professional. I needed to get my battery replaced which he was able to do quickly on the spot. So convenient, great customer service and I would use them again for any repairs on my car in the future. I didn’t know mobile mechanics existed, doesn’t get any more convenient than that! So glad I found you guys!

I had what i percieved as an electrical issue with my 2008 Corvette. It was sitting in my garage and would not start and to make it worse it would no go into Drive or Park, it was stuck in neutral. Being stuck in neutral caused the battery to die within a day, and it would not charge because it was in nuetral .... or some other reason that im not aware of. My biggest concern was getting it out of... my garage and onto a flat deck without sustaining any damage. This is when i learned of instaMek (simply by searching the internet) and the service they offer. My service call took a couple of appointments to get the real issue figured out, but in the end my car was fixed and up and running for about the same as the cost of a flatdeck to have it hauled to a dealership. Who knows what the additional costs would have been had it actually made it to that dealership. Both mechanics that came out were very personable and friendly, and at no time did i get that feeling that i was going to be taken for a "financial ride". I have reccomended this service to my daughter and would not hesitate to reccomend them to you.Scottread more

I have multiple experiences with instamek and they're my goto mechanics now. The service is quick and the staff friendly. I first heard about them through BCAA when I wanted to get a car inspected but since have used them to replace my battery and brakes. Thanks again guys!

Very pleased with the service I received. My battery clamps were seized and we could not get the battery out. Colton came at the arranged time and did a great job replacing and installing the new battery. I was pleased with the service and cost. I would definitely recommend and use instamech again! jean
