How can you tell if you need a new car battery?
How can you tell if it's time for a replacement battery? Here are some symptoms to look out for:
- There's no response at all when you turn the key in the ignition or start the car
- You can hear the starter motor working but the engine won't start
- The battery won't hold a charge, even when a charger is used
- Your car struggles to start or starts very slowly
- The engine starts but then dies immediately
- Your interior light doesn't come on when you open the car door
- The 'check engine' light or other warning lights come on and stays on
- Your battery looks misshapen
- The battery smells strange - like rotten eggs
- The battery terminals (where the battery cables attach) are corroded or damaged
Most of these problems mean your car isn't going to move - but don't worry. As well as working with lots of mobile battery mechanics, all of our service partners offer roadside assistance - so getting your car to the shop won't be a problem.
Of course, What seems to be a dead car battery is sometimes just a flat battery or a problem elsewhere in your vehicle's electrical system. When a mechanic is able to inspect your vehicle, they'll be able to pinpoint the problem quickly.

Car batteries for all makes and models
It's important to make sure you get the right battery for your vehicle. Don't worry though, we'll direct you to a service partner familiar with the electrical systems on your specific vehicle.
We can connect you with a huge range of service centres - from Toyota, Ford and Holden, through to European specialists who work with vehicles from VW, Audi, BMW, Mercedes Benz, and more.
What's more, since every Auto Hero service partner works with approved diagnostic equipment, you can be confident you'll get the same standard of service you would at a main dealer - but without the price tag.
How much does a new battery cost?
Vehicle batteries are available in a range of different power outputs - known as 'cold cranking amps'. The exact kind of battery you need will vary from vehicle to vehicle - and as such, there's no set price when you replace a dead battery.
We appreciate that this could make you wonder if you're being charged a fair price - but at Auto Hero, our way of working offers total peace of mind.
We believe fairness and transparency should be priorities when you're having your car repaired. Therefore, the price you've given when you get a quote for a car battery replacement is the price you'll pay. We do not work with service centres that haggle, inflate their prices or insist on additional work.
What's more, we don't charge any commission when you book your car maintenance using our website. We are Australia's highest reviewed auto repair comparison website - and we insist that the car servicing partners we work with share our great service and high standards.
Let us know what you need, and we'll find the best price for your car's new battery
