WORKSHOPS GET READY FOR THE START-STOP AFTERMARKET Now that Start-Stop batteries have entered the aftermarket, independent workshops can fully rely on Exide s support and products to compete with franchise main dealers and battery specialists.
Exide listened carefully to the views of garage operators before launching the first complete set of task-specific battery workshop tools. These simple, flexible and cost-effective solutions allow garages to exploit the full potential of this rapidly expanding new market. Not two workshops are alike, so this approach enables garages to buy only the tools they need to deal with all battery types, including the most recent Start-Stop batteries.
Start-Stop vehicles are the fastest growing segment of the car parc, with the batteries tied much more closely to the electrical management system and the Electronic Control Unit (ECU).
Some diagnostic equipment are still not capable of dealing with Start-Stop battery replacement, but Exide has been helping to resolve the issue. Working with the diagnostic equipment providers, Exide has made new technical data available that allow software updates for correct battery replacement.
Not all workshops have the latest diagnostic equipment or some may prefer more portable units. This is why Exide provides the BRT-12 battery replacement tool, as it enables any competent technician to professionally check the correct installation of a Start-Stop battery and clear any battery fault warning lights
from the dashboard.It is a viable investment that costs around 80% less than full diagnostic equipment. Regular software updates will be continually provided by Exide, as new models enter the market. Simply connect the device via USB to your PC and download the new data.
All workshop operators should review their capability of replacing Start-Stop batteries in the newest models. With Exide s support, it is very easy to adapt quickly to new battery technology and protect or expand the workshop s current business.
Trust Exide to provide the independent aftermarket with high-quality Start-Stop battery products, expert advice and straightforward installation solutions.
