Product Information:

Save hundreds of pounds with Stop-Start fitting at Groves Batteries

If you own a Stop-Start vehicle or a vehicle with very 'light' eco modes, you may well require a 'AGM' or 'EFB' battery. These units are very heavy duty due to the increased strain on the battery for the eco features. You can find our range of Stop-Start batteries and a bit more info by clicking here

As these units are generally fully sealed and non-spillable, vehicle manufacturers like to move the battery location around inside the vehicle - normally in very hard to get to spots. On top of that, the vehicle will need to be notified of the battery change via a computer. This service is normally well over £200 at mainstream garages as they like to charge for at least 1 hour labour (plus they keep your vehicle for at least half a day). This is where Groves comes in. 

At a fixed fitting fee, we install a new battery and code it to the vehicle - all included in the price. We know of every Start-Stop vehicle and it's batteries, so you can be rest assured that we know what we are doing.

 

Coding:

Almost every car made after 2008 will have what's called an OBD socket. This allows for easy diagnostics and also battery validation. This is a required process if you plan to change your battery as the alternator changes its charging rate over time and we need to tell it that there is a new battery. Failure to do so will impact drastically on the lifetime, performance of the battery and will void the warranty.
