In each instance, Electroworx’s mobile car breakdown service will be able to help you get back to your life.

    5 common reasons why your car can break down

    #1 Faulty battery

    Battery issues are often the main cause of car breakdowns. If you experience the following, then it is likely that your breakdown is a result of a faulty battery:

    • Issues starting the engine
    • Engine taking longer than usual to start
    • Difficulty turning the engine over
    • Red battery warning light

    If you are currently worried about your battery, then try charging it overnight; this may extend its life.

    #2 Alternator issues

    Alternator issues are often linked to battery issues. Your alternator holds the majority of power and while the battery’s stored power can keep your car running for some time, eventually it will run out of energy. In a nutshell, without a proper functioning alternator, the battery will not charge.

    You’ll most likely notice that your alternator is not working properly when your car begins to lose power. Your car will not immediately break down, but gradually, you will see symptoms of lost power such as dimmed lights, slow wipers and your ignition warning light.

    #3 Damaged tyre

    This breakdown may not have to do with the power  of your car, but rather the logistics. A damaged tyre is extremely common and can happen without warning. You can puncture your tyre by driving on debris or an open hole. You are also more likely to suffer tyre damage if you don’t maintain your tyres properly.

    While it’s hard to determine when you may get a flat tyre, you can routinely check your tyres for signs of damage and poor alignment. Damaged tyres can be fixed without our mobile car breakdown service, however, if you don’t have a spare tyre, you’ll have to give us a call.

    #4 Electrical issues

    There is a multitude of issues that can occur with your car’s electrics. From burned out bulbs to the wear and tear of wirings – the problems can be endless! Without the proper training, it’s difficult for drivers to determine what’s wrong with their car and dangerous for them to drive to an auto repair shop.

    In this case, we highly recommend contacting Electrowox for their mobile car breakdown service. One of our auto electrician will run a full analysis of the system to diagnose the issue and advise you of a solution.

    #5 Misfuelling

    You’d be surprised to find out how many people put the wrong type of fuel in your car. While it sounds like a simple mistake, the results can be disastrous! If you’ve realised that you put the wrong fuel in your car but haven’t started the engine, then immediately contact Electrowrox and we’ll assist in ridding your car of the fuel. If you have started the engine, you should still contact us, however, the impact on your engine may be more damaging.
