Exide Unveils New Battery Finder Features

Exide Unveils New Battery Finder Features

The new tool was developed to help guide car mechanics through the battery replacement process for passenger cars in Europe.

When it comes to correct fitment, the replacement process is as important as the battery itself, according to Exide Technologies. In addition to providing market-leading fitment information, Exide now offers its advanced Exide Battery Finder tool, which was developed to help guide car mechanics through the replacement process for passenger cars of the European parc, including hybrid, electric and light commercial vehicles. 

Once the correct battery has been identified – using the vehicle make/model selection, vehicle identification number (VIN) or license plate number – Exide now offers accessible and detailed instructions on: 

• Battery location – For some vehicles, the position of the battery is not always obvious: it may be to the right or left of the engine, at the front or rear of the vehicle, under the bonnet or in the luggage compartment. Before Exide, users would have had to consult the vehicle handbook to find the battery location for their model, wasting time and energy. 

• Approximate labor time – The battery replacement process varies between vehicles and models. Knowing the approximate labor time allows mechanics to estimate the complexity and cost of repair in advance. 

• How to exchange the battery – Mechanics are shown how to connect and disconnect the vehicle’s battery, as well as set-up its related functions, such as initialization of window lifters and gearbox settings, meaning they’re able to use the tool from start-to-finish. 

• Registration – If the replaced battery needs validation, and how to register this into the vehicle’s battery management system – Registration is an important part of the battery replacement process: it allows the vehicle to adjust to the new battery settings. Failure to correctly register a new battery may prevent the vehicle from starting or cause damage to its electrical system and the battery itself. Exide’s battery registration tool offers simplicity and peace-of-mind. 

The new Exide Battery Finder tool is available now and free to use with mobile and desktop.
