Yuasa are giving garages a free USB Smart Button which provides ultra-fast access to their industry-leading Online Battery Lookup. This powerful tool can save valuable workshop time and money by allowing technicians to find the right battery and detailed fitting information quickly and easily.
On a modern vehicle battery replacement is no longer a straightforward fit-and-forget job. Vehicles with advanced technology such as Start-Stop can often be more complex and far more time consuming than expected.
The location of the battery and OBD port, Battery Management System (BMS) reset and level of trim removal required can catch garages out, with some vehicles requiring up to 90 minutes’ work. What’s more, on these newer vehicles failure to use the correct replacement battery can cause serious problems.
As Europe’s most advanced battery lookup tool, Yuasa’s super-fast USB Smart Button and Online Battery Lookup system is already used by over 75,000 mechanics. One push of the USB Smart Button and the entire system opens automatically on any device.
From here, users can search for the right battery for a whole range of applications by simply entering the registration number or VIN/Chassis no. of the car, van, commercial vehicle or motorcycle. They can also search by make/model.
With details including estimated fitting times, battery and OBD location, and battery replacement procedures, workshops can easily price accordingly and also save valuable time spent on the job.
Additional unique features of Yuasa’s Battery Lookup include:
– Estimated fitting time, fitting instructions, diagrams and dynamic technical data sheet downloads.
– Cross reference search for all DIN, JIS and ETN numbers plus other battery brands & OE references
– Superior browse battery functionality allowing you to search the entire range by key criteria such as spec, dimensions etc.
– Driven by Yuasa’s European database and updated daily to ensure all information is accurate.
– Full European coverage and multiple languages.
James Douglas, Marketing Executive at Yuasa Battery Sales (UK) Ltd said: “Our USB Smart Button and Online Battery Lookup tool is designed to make our customers’ lives as easy as possible, by allowing them to find the battery they need quickly. Beyond that, it provides a really quick and convenient system which presents them with all the information they need to fit the battery to the vehicle they have searched for.
“On older, more traditional vehicles, the battery tends to be under the bonnet, and it’s a quick job to change it. With newer vehicles, especially those featuring start/stop technology you need to replace the battery with the correct type, and also reprogram the Battery Management System (BMS). Furthermore, the battery is not always located under the bonnet – it could be under the seat or you might have to remove various levels of trim to get to it.
“Our USB Smart Button and Online Battery lookup is the most advanced battery lookup tool available and is already widely used across the UK and Europe. It offers a range of unique advanced features. By not only identifying the correct replacement battery, but also providing important technical data, battery fitting information and an estimated fitting time it can help garages and workshops save valuable time and money.”
Built using smart logic, the system will ask users to confirm trim levels or features where multiple versions of a specific vehicle may exist – this guarantees the correct battery is identified. Fitment feedback means users can report any fitment inaccuracies quickly and easily. All feedback will be investigated and the system can be updated within 24 hours if required.
