If you are searching for Eco Idle car battery, this is probably your first car with the Idle Start-Stop function right? Either the new elegant Perodua Myvi or the Bezza Advance. Yup you are at the right place. In this article, we will briefly explain what is the Eco Idle system and why does it need a different type of battery to operate (and why is it more expensive!).

As a car owner, it is definitely crucial for you to understand how it works so that you may be able to diagnose any issue if anything were to happen in the future. Let’s get started!

Eco Idle System, What It Is?


Eco Idle is Perodua’s term for Start-Stop System, but don’t confuse it with your push start button. That is not a start-stop system (although ‘start stop’ is written on top of the button). Start Stop system is a system where when your car idles (complete stop), stopping at a traffic light for example, the engine will shut off momentarily and it will automatically restart when you release the brakes.

Push start vs start stop

The system is meant to save petrol while your car is not moving. Such a great thing to have in a Perodua car! This technology is usually available only in a >RM100k worth of car. Even the Malaysian’s favorite Honda Civic does not offer this function. You should be proud to have it.

But of course, it comes with a setback. Your car starts more often than a normal car!

With a normal car, you probably start the car in the morning for work, going out for lunch, and traveling back to your home. That is 3-4 times a day. But with the Eco Idle system, your car engine would be restarted on every traffic light stop and even standstill traffic. Instead of 3-4 times, the battery will be used to start the car 10-15 times a day!

That is why the normal battery is not sufficient to support the Eco Idle system. It will damage the battery much sooner. As for this reason, you would need a different type of battery which is called Enhanced Flooded Battery (EFB).

The EFB type battery is slightly advance technology that supports more usage cycle, suitable with the Eco Idle system.

Looking for a EFB battery for you Perodua Myvi / Perodua Bezza? We sell it at a cheaper rate than service centers! With FREE delivery and installation to your location.

Ever find yourself with a dead car battery issue? Works just fine yesterday and suddenly your car couldn’t start?

Yup, we have all been there once. And just like you, as someone who knows nothing about car, this problem leaves us all in confusion as to what’s going on with the car. And the worst part, majority of us do not know/save any contact of a foreman. End up calling some friends to help us diagnose the issue. 

Even if you manage to get a contact, usually local workshops operates from 9AM until 6PM. If you have a breakdown early in the morning or later at night, you probably won’t be able to get any help anytime soon. Been there, done that.

So today we are going to share with you some tips on getting a temporary fix for this issue.


How To Revive a Dead Car Battery

1. Check Battery Terminal Connections

The first thing that you want to do is to check the terminal connection. Make sure the connections are tight and well connected. Try to move the connection,if it’s movable (can be rotated), means the connection are not perfect.

While doing this, make sure you have switched off your car and to be safe, keep the keys with you. 

2. Clean Up Battery Terminal

Clean up any sulfation or dirt to make sure the contact are perfect and ensure efficient power supply. Again, make sure your cars are switched off.

3. Attempt a ‘Jumpstart’

Perform a jumpstart if you have the necessary equipment and tools. Else, try to get help from a neighbour or nearby friends.

Few things that you may need to be really careful with :

– Make sure the it is being done with the right sequence.
– Ensure the ‘donor’ battery size/capacity is bigger than the ‘dead’ battery
– Once done, let you engine runs for 20-30 minutes to recharge your battery
– For cars with a lot of electronics part and features, seek a professional assistance (such as CARPUT)

Causes of Dead Car Battery

1. Reaching It’s Limit

Do you know, an average lifespan of a normal maintenance free car battery is around 1.5-2 years. With a better care, you may extend it’s lifespan up to 2-3 years. But that’s about it. The plates will have lower holding capacity and eventually will need a new replacement.

But in case it dies off earlier, don’t forget to claim for warranty. Most battery manufacturer provide a warranty period of at least 12 months (or 25,000 KM mileage). If it’s faulty within the warranty period, you may claim to get a new battery replacement. (psstt, CARPUT warranty period is up to 18 months!)

2. Forgot To Switch Off Lights

Not just the headlights, sometimes we make some mistake such as not closing the door tight enough, causing the interior light to be left switched on for the entire night. This will drain out the battery.

As for this type of cases, you may not need to change your battery yet. Try to jumpstart and have your car running to recharge the battery with your car alternator. Then only you try to switch off and start again. If failure, probably your battery needs replacement as it no longer able to hold charge.

3. Alternator Did Not / Low Charge

One of another common issue is alternator. The function of a car alternator is to charge your car battery while the engine is running. For older cars, some alternator may need to be replaced. It does not charge as efficient, thus causing the car battery to be always in a lower charged. 

If your alternator is faulty, a jumpstart won’t solve your issue. Your car will dies off while you are driving. If you are facing such issue, it is advised for you to call you car insurance and get your car towed to a nearby workshop. In case your car is under a 3rd party insurance with no towing coverage, you can try to check with our price. 



Signs of a Weak Car Battery

 

1. Dimming Headlights

You may be able to notice that your headlights are a little bit dimmer than usual. But it may not be too obvious unless you are particular to changes and details.

2. Weak Crankings

You may face a difficulty in cranking your engine. It may sounds a little bit weaker than usual. Yup, that’s your battery in low health/charge.

3. Sulfication on Terminals

Sulfication is another sign of a weakened car battery,

Do you want to know the truth about Carput’s car battery delivery service?

You’ve probably came across some reviews about Carput. Some give good, positive reviews, and some express critical reviews. So how can you know the truth if there’s an equal number of positive and negative reviews about us?

It’s simple. You just need to look at some of these honest reviews.

You don’t have to search high and low for reviews on the internet because this article curates some of the critically good and bad reviews.

Carput Review

We understand the underlying fear and doubt when we just get to know a brand or service. Especially when most of the reviews you find on the internet skew towards more favorable recommendations.

Many people have different opinions. Several people claim to have various experiences with Carput.

But before we give you the truth behind the reviews about us, allow us to share a little about us, the people of Carput.

Car Battery & Bateri Kereta Malaysia

What is Carput?

Carput is Malaysia’s #1 roadside assistance company, rescuing drivers whose car has broken down by connecting them with qualified roadside professionals.

The Carput team is a young, diverse team committed to getting you back on the road. We are building a culture of trust, over-delivering and one that isn’t afraid to say we are sorry.

We are ready to disrupt the automotive services industry by leveraging on technology to provide a more efficient and better service for all.

The Truth and Nothing but the Truth

At Carput, we deliver not only quality products to our customers but also hospitality that sets us apart from our competitors.

Car Battery at Competitive Prices

Let’s be honest here. When we are paying for something to move further away from pain, for example, medication, will you praise the pharmacist because the medicine is cheap?

We just want the pain to go away as soon as possible. The same applies to a dead car battery.

Honesty, the Best Policy

At Carput, we are in the automotive assist not for a quick buck but for the long run. We understand the feeling of being vulnerable to unscrupulous roadside assist practices.

Also, we consider ourselves very lucky to have amazing individuals in our team. We can always train inexperienced technician for the job, but we cannot train moral values.

We are Fast, Really Fast

Thanks to the efficient delegation of tasks and strategic placement of technicians, we are able to reach you in an average time of 30 minutes.

Sometimes, we couldn’t keep up too…

We are constantly finding ways to improve our rescue efficiency but there will always be a point where we just couldn’t keep up with the number of requests coming in. 

And this happens…

Nobody’s Perfect, neither is Carput

We are still a growing company and we are bound to disappoint some of our customers due to operational constraints.

This next review by Asher Looi hits the bullseye in that aspect. As a team, we still have a lot of work to do and we know we are not going on this journey alone.



The Warranty Dilemma

The truth about our car batteries is that we are at the mercy of our suppliers. When it comes to a car battery warranty claim, we do not have the final say.

We want to make everyone happy especially our beloved customers. But, we have to adhere to warranty claim procedures set by the manufacturers.

But, we will not hesitate to give a 1 to 1 car battery replacement if we deem the battery is faulty due to manufacturing defects for no additional charges.

The Carput Experience

We can’t promise we can be fast 100% of the time, nor can we promise that the car battery you bought from Carput is the cheapest.

But, we promise that your experience with us will be pleasant and stress-free. When you call Carput for help, you can be assured that we will be there to get you back on your journey safely.

Checking your car’s tyre pressure is not something you have to do every day. But you should know that the tyres are paramount for your safety.


The air in your car’s tyre depletes slowly as you drive, so it’s best to check every two weeks to ensure its optimum pressure level.

What is the correct tyre pressure for any car? When it comes to the right tyre pressure, the maximum is not optimum. Read on to learn why:


The easy way to know if the pressure is right













Under-inflated tyres – Not good

Does your car occasionally feel heavier than normal? That’s because you are experiencing increased rolling resistance with the road. That also means reduced fuel efficiency and increased CO2 emissions.

If you notice that the inside and outside edges of the tread that is already ‘botak’, that’s because you have been driving with under-inflated tyres.

What you may think: Under-inflated tyres will make the car ride less bumpy. That’s not true because bumpiness of the ride is affected by the suspension and absorber, not the tyres.


Over-inflated tyres – Not good

More means better right? Not really, when it comes to tyre. Putting too much air in your tyres can be just as damaging and costly.

Over-inflated tyres will have a smaller contact patch which can lead to a loss of traction and poorer braking distances. Not only that, your tyres will wear heavily and unevenly across the central part of the tyre leading to shorter tyre lifespan.

What you may think: Some might think that over-inflated tyres provide better acceleration. But at what cost?


The optimum tyre pressure – GOOD

You don’t have to bring along a scientific calculator and do the math every time you want to inflate your tyres. Information on your car’s recommended tyre pressure can be found at the driver’s door jam.

If it’s not there, try looking on the trunk lid, in the console or on the fuel tank flap. When your tyres are inflated to the recommended PSI, you will have happy tyres which mean optimum life and performance.

What you must know before pumping the tyres

1. Know the recommended tyre air pressure

You’ll find the manufacturer’s recommended tyre pressure for your car on the sticker in the door jam (Yeah! It’s there and it’s for your tyres!), or in your owner’s manual.


2. Your air source is at the nearest petrol station

DSC03725
Air pumps at petrol stations around Malaysia are easy to operate. You can use the air pump to check the tyre pressure and at the same time inflating the tyres. Though you will get a more accurate reading with a tyre gauge. Most of the pumps come with a chart to help you convert from psi to kPa or vice versa. No math required 😛


3. Get em’ tyres pumped

Be patient. The sound of the air rushing to fill the tyre is almost as satisfying as an orchestra. It will take as little as 20 seconds to a few minutes to fill each tyre. Remember to screw back the valve cap after that and you are ready to roll!


Why does it matter?

Having the right tyre pressure may help prolong the lifespan of your vehicle’s tyres, increases the vehicle’s safety and helps save fuel. A tyre’s lifespan may decrease up to 75% if it is operating at around 80% of the optimum pressure.

It’s good to get a tyre pressure gauge for the household and get every driver in your family to be responsible for their car tyres. Always check the tyre pressure when your tyres are cold.

Also, if you are using your vehicle to carry additional load or weight, always consult your vehicle handbook for the correct loaded tyre pressure.
The next time you pay a visit to the petrol station, give your car tyres a quick check and get the air pressure right. Trust me, you will feel the difference for the better. And if you have a flat tyre, remember there’s the CARPUT mobile app to get reliable help changing to a spare tyre!

Apa perkara pertama yang anda buat sebaik sahaja anda nampak meter minyak berkelip? Ada beberapa jenis pemandu yang boleh kita kasifikasikan dalam kes ini.

Ada jenis pemandu yang terus mencari stesen minyak berdekatan. Kalau atas highway, sanggup exit.

Ada juga jenis pemandu yang tak pernah kenal erti minyak berkelip. Asal tinggal 1 bar saja, terus isi penuh.

Tapi, 

Ada juga jenis pemandu yang bila minyak berkelip, kalau boleh dia nak bawa kereta sampai tangki minyak kering. Baru nak isi.

Anda golongan yang mana? Sekiranya anda tergolong dalam golongan yang ke 3, ketahuilah anda adalah golongan yang merisikokan kereta anda sendiri! Tabiat ini harus terus diubah segera.

Mesti anda akan kata,

“Eleh setiap kereta ada reserve tank lah. Bila minyak berkelip, masih boleh jalan 30-40KM.”

Kami akan terangkan bagaimana tabiat buruk anda ini bakal mengakibatkan kerosakan kepada Fuel Pump anda.

Apa Itu Fuel Pump

Sebelum tu, anda perlu tahu dulu apa itu fuel pump. Fuel pump berfungsi sebagai alat yang mengepam bahan api (petrol/diesel) ke enjin kenderaan. Sesetengah kenderaan, apabila anda hidupkan suis kereta, anda akan dapat dengan fuel pump anda berfungsi mengepam minyak ke enjin untuk anda hidupkan enjin. Tanpa fuel pump, kereta anda tidak akan dapat bergerak.

Jangan Memandu Dengan Minyak Berkelip, Bakal Rosakkan Kereta

Bagaimana Memandu Dengan Minyak Berkelip Rosakkan Fuel Pump?

Apabila anda memandu dengan lampu minyak berkelip, bererti anda memandu dengan tangki minyak yang minima. Jadi apa kesannya kepada kereta anda?

1. Berlaku Geseran Berlebihan pada Fuel Pump

Minyak petrol yang ada di dalam tangki minyak juga berfungsi sebagai minyak ‘pelincir’ untuk fuel pump. Apabila minyak berada di paras yang rendah, fuel pump berfungsi tanpa minyak sebagai pelincir. Ini menjadikan terdapat geseran yang lebih berlaku di fuel pump.

Akibat daripada geseran tersebut, fuel pump akan rosak lebih cepat.

2. Fuel Pump Menjadi Panas

Selain menjadi pelincir, minyak juga menjadi bahan penyejuk untuk fuel pump. Apabila minyak pada paras yang rendah, sebahagian besar fuel pump tidak terendam di dalam minyak, berbanding tangki yang lebih terisi. Ini sekaligus menyebabkan suhu fuel pump menjadi sedikit tinggi daripada biasa.

Dan fuel pump menjadi lebih terdedah kepada kerosakan berbanding fuel pump yang beroperasi di dalam tangki minyak penuh.



Oleh sebab itu, adalah penting untuk anda memastikan yang anda tidak terlalu kerap memandu dengan lampu minyak berkelip.

Sedarlah bahawa tindakan anda itu, tidak membantu anda menjimatkan penggunaan minyak. Sebaliknya, anda bakal menyusahkan diri sendiri apabila tiba-tiba kereta mati sewaktu memandu. Malah, anda terpaksa mengeluarkan kos lebih lagi untuk khidmat towing dan menggantikan fuel pump baru.
