GS YUASA informs workshops: Avoid the risk of installing the wrong battery in a vehicle.

Installation situation of a GS YUASA battery in a vehicle.


Krefeld, 7. Juli 2020 – In order to find a suitable replacement battery for a vehicle, workshops often use a general battery lookup system. However, this involves risks. The online trade lookup tool helps to avoid serious issues caused by incorrect application.


Battery replacement is no longer a simple task. Fitting the wrong one to a vehicle can lead to damaging consequences, usually resulting in breakdown and a very short battery service life.


Modern day vehicles are ever more complex. Most new models use next generation start-stop technology and are produced with a vast array of specification options. Many will have additional auxiliary batteries to accompany the main starter unit. Although there are many different lookup systems accessible to workshops most cannot account for these multiple variables.


First launched in 2012, YUASA’s trade battery lookup website is the original and most comprehensive solution available. It accounts for all these different factors. That is why it’s the most accurate, trusted and well used system in the industry. Garages, distributors, technicians and mechanics can proactively use the lookup system to prevent unnecessary battery related failure due to the wrong battery being fitted.


Where is the difference?


When searching on most other battery lookup systems, the results can show multiple and dissimilar choices for a vehicle. Users can be presented with an array of different specifications with no obvious correct suggestion, causing uncertainty. These confusing results may lead to doubt and incorrect batteries being fitted, resulting in complications and premature failure.


With, users are guaranteed to find the exact battery on every occasion, helping technicians save valuable time and money, whilst boosting their own customer service and reputation.


This is primarily due to GS YUASA’s database which is updated daily by dedicated technicians. Furthermore, the manufacturer works with garages to obtain feedback on inaccuracies in the data. Together this makes by far the most accurate lookup tool in the industry with the most comprehensive database with over 100,000 unique vehicle models listed.


YUASA’s powerful system is extremely user friendly and ultra-fast. The system is completely free to use and can be accessed online at or simply by pushing a YUASA USB Smart Button.
