Auto Battery and Charging System Repair in Plymouth Meeting, PA

Getting into your vehicle only to find that your car won’t start is always an inconvenience. You may wonder if you somehow caused your battery to die, and whether or not a jump start might do the trick. A dead battery can be just that - your battery has lost all of its juices and won’t stay running any longer, or it could be an issue with the charging system.

At German Auto Specialists in Plymouth Meeting, PA, we are the European vehicle experts in the area and are here to assist with any battery or charging system issue you may be experiencing. We work on and specialize in Porsche, Audi, Mercedes, BMW, MINI, Volkswagen, Range Rover/Land Rover, Bentley, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Aston Martin, and Volvo vehicles, and employ the ASE certified technicians qualified to handle your car with the utmost care and precision.


A car battery does have a lifespan, typically lasting only between 3-5 years depending on the brand and quality of the battery. If your battery dies, and a jump start is successful, chances are you may find that your battery dies on you again quickly.

If you’re dealing with a potential dead battery situation, the best solution is to bring your car into our shop for an inspection. We can test the battery and determine if it needs to be replaced, or if the issue stems from a separate component such as the alternator within the charging system.

Charging Systems

While the battery gives the initial spark for your vehicle to start, the charging system is what keeps your battery running while you drive. A main component of this system is the alternator, which essentially charges the battery and supplies additional electric power for your car’s other electrical components.

A problem with the alternator or charging system can leave your battery dying after a short drive. A test here at our shop can pinpoint the exact source of the issue, and will get you back on the road in a timely manner with a restored vehicle.

As soon as you recognize an issue either with starting your vehicle or your vehicle staying running, we encourage you to bring your vehicle into our shop for assistance. Getting stranded on the road is never ideal, and oftentimes a successful jump start is only temporary.
