Vehicle Battery issues following COVID lockdown

Vehicle Battery issues following COVID lockdown

Due to a change in circumstances for many people this year, some vehicle owners may have noted issues in low vehicle battery levels on their Audi, BMW, MINI, Mercedes, Jaguar, Land Rover & Range Rover.  Following COVID and the last 6 month lockdown period, many vehicles across the UK have suffered from reduced energy in their batteries, due to the lack of vehicle driving on a daily basis.

Bought on by the fact, that for a few months, – cars substantially reduced their day to day running and were not driven on long journeys. This has meant that vehicles have not had the chance to re-charge their batteries and so the power has possibly deteriorated.

Some owners of Audi, BMW, MINI, Mercedes, Jaguar, Land Rover & Range Rover are finding that their car batteries have become weaker and maybe struggling to start the vehicle first time, or that a warning light maybe regularly appearing on the vehicle’s dashboard.
