How often should I schedule a health check of my hybrid vehicle?
We recommend clients book an appointment every six months to ensure their vehicle is running optimally in relation to the capacity, charging ability, and cooling performance of your vehicle's battery. Clients will also receive recommendations on potential future repairs and maintenance.
When should I have my battery replaced?
Every hybrid car or fully electric car has an engine management system that indicates when the battery pack no longer functions properly.
A number of error codes are: P07A, P0A80, P3001, P3024, P0A7F, P1435, P1570, P3000, P1435 and P1446. If one of these codes is indicated in your engine management system, or another code with regard to battery package, this means that the battery no longer functions sufficiently and that it is likely that it must be replaced.
Why should I replace my battery?
Hybrid or fully electric cars are powered by an electric motor. The big advantage of this engine is that it has much less wear because there is no combustion as in a traditional combustion engine. An electric motor also has no timing belt that you must have replaced regularly. I certainly has added value to have your battery pack replaced after five to six years and then have years of driving pleasure again.
Which brands and models are eligible?
We currently have the brands: Honda, Toyota and Lexus in our range. We are expanding to multiple brands and models. If you have any questions about the new brands and models, please get in touch with us.
Can I also replace cells myself?
No, this is not possible. The replacement of battery cells can only be done by a specialist who knows exactly what he is doing. You can also not just replace every cell from a battery for another cell, these must be found together with a good match. If these cells are not matched correctly, then all cells can be destroyed.
