Problems starting? We have the answers to your questions

There may be various reasons for the car not starting. The voltage level of your starter battery can only be reliably checked with a voltmeter. It’s best to arrange an appointment for a battery check at an AMAG garage near you.

If the car battery isn’t recharging despite a sufficiently long drive, you may need to change it. If the battery is still relatively new or you’ve only recently recharged it, we advise you to arrange an appointment at your AMAG garage and to have the starter and generator checked.

To jump-start the car, use only the jump leads provided for this purpose. Turn off both engines. Connect the positive terminals of both batteries with the jump lead. Under no circumstances should you touch the body of the car since this may cause a short circuit. Then connect the black ground cable first to the negative terminal of the battery of the helper car and then to a metal part of the engine of the car with the flat battery (not to the negative terminal of the discharged battery). Then first start the helper car and then attempt to start the car with the flat battery. After successful jump start, disconnect the cables again in the reverse order.

In the case of modern vehicles with an automatic start-stop system, the engine cuts out a number of times during the drive, which places a greater strain on the battery. A conventional starter battery isn’t designed for this charge throughput, which is why a special battery is required. If the vehicle already has an AGM battery fitted, it should be replaced only by an AGM battery if the battery needs changing.
