Should my car battery be changed as a service item?
At GT Auto Centre we have the latest Bosch computerised testers that can quickly check the quality of your battery and advise if it should be changed BEFORE it lets you down. We do this as a free of charge service. Car batteries do not last forever and are worth changing every few years to ensure you are not stranded, certainly they need to be checked. At GT Auto Centre we keep a large stock of Bosch and other quality batteries meaning we can quickly get you back on the road.
Is it necessary to reset car electrics after a battery change?
Some cars such as BMW’s give a warning that the battery is coming to the end of its natural life. When this happens, the car charging system ‘overcharges’ to compensate for the failing battery. It’s critical to switch this off or your new battery will be damagingly overcharged. At GT Auto Centre we have the correct equipment to reset the charging systems in accordance with manufactures instructions. It is not possible to do this without this specialist equipment.

Is it easy to check a car battery?
Yes, this is an easy service. Checking the condition of your car battery and battery charging system is a service available at GT Auto Centre across Dubai and takes around 10 minutes to complete.
This simple but effective test, which includes checking the charging system, voltage output, and the charging rate of the battery, will indicate whether a battery failure is imminent or not by comparing the test result against the manufacturer’s specification.
