Certified Hybrid Electric Vehicle Repairs

Some Sussex car repair shops can handle hybrid repairs better than others.


It’s important to work with the right car repair shops in Sussex to ensure your car is serviced by professionals that know how to handle your specific vehicle. If you have a hybrid vehicle, you will need to find a repair shop with the right training and experience to take care of any hybrid repair needs you may have along the way. There are certain types of electrical repairs that are exclusive to the hybrid lines.

What Happens to the Battery?
Some Sussex car repair shops can handle hybrid repairs better than others.

Most people assume the battery in a hybrid vehicle is exactly the same as a traditional car battery. This is not the case. For starters, the hybrid car has a rechargeable battery that needs attention on a regular basis. Like all other rechargeable batteries, it isn’t uncommon for the battery to wear out over time. However, instead of replacing it when it starts failing to charge, you simply need battery reconditioning from a qualified Sussex car repair shop. Doing so will prevent the need for a costly replacement.

What Is Battery Reconditioning?

If you wait for your battery to die completely, you will end up needing a replacement, which can be incredibly expensive. Instead, many car repair shops in Sussex that provide hybrid repair can provide a battery reconditioning service. Rather than replacing the battery entirely, they will recondition the battery back to a healthy state so it will charge properly again and maintain that charge so you can achieve better fuel economy the way your vehicle was intended. This can help prolong the life of your battery.

Hybrid repair means knowing how ot handle the battery issues that may arise.How It Works

First, your Sussex car repair shop will hook up a harness to the high-voltage battery. The battery is then put through several deep charging cycles, charging and discharging the battery completely. This will restore the battery to its previous function so you can rely on it for longer. It’s important to request this maintenance service as soon as you notice signs the battery may be experiencing issues. If you wait until the battery dies entirely, you won’t be able to get it reconditioned to prevent having to replace it.

Hybrid repair isn’t entirely different from repairing older types of vehicles. However, there are certain aspects that require a certified car repair shop to ensure things are handled correctly. One of these features is the hybrid battery found in your vehicle. This type of battery is more expensive than your traditional car battery, which means you need to do what you can to protect it. The good news is these batteries can often be reconditioned before they die completely so you can prolong its life and put off this expense for a later date.

If you’re interested in finding a Sussex repair shop that can perform this type of battery reconditioning, contact us. Our experienced technicians can help you get your car back on the road and charging properly.
