Start-stop battery validation is essential, Manbat warns

Failure to validate the battery can cause a wide range of vehicle problems

Start-stop battery validation is essential, Manbat warns
The Manbat ‘Connect + Reset’ battery validation tool.

The battery in a micro-hybrid vehicle (one fitted with a start-stop function) is central to its electrical systems and is constantly governed by a battery management module, which monitors its voltage, current, temperature and operating time.

This information is processed to determine the battery’s state of charge, starting capacity, electrical consumption, energy reserve and optimum charging voltage, to ensure the system applies the correct charging regime and keeps it in the best possible condition.

Manbat warn that fitting the battery for which the system was designed is crucial, but so also is the process of ‘validation’ to ensure the battery and battery management module are diagnostically ‘connected’ and able to communicate with one another correctly.

Failure to validate the battery can cause issues with the start-stop functionality, shutdown of non-essential electrical systems and the premature failure of the battery.

Manbat’s ‘Connect + Reset’ battery validation tool offers a simple, effective and inexpensive way to allow technicians to install a start-stop battery with confidence.

Some vehicles without a start-stop function require battery validation when fitting a replacement and here too the ‘Connect + Reset’ tool provides the solution.
