Understanding Your Car’s Electrical System
The electrical system in your car consists of three main components: the battery, the starter, and the alternator. When you turn the key in the ignition, the starter gets power from the battery to start the engine. Once the car is running, the alternator provides electricity to various parts of the vehicle, such as the exterior and interior lights, heating, and air conditioner. It also recharges the battery, so the battery has enough juice to power the starter the next time you turn the key. If there’s a problem with any of these components, you’ll have difficulty getting the engine running.
We Can Handle All of Your Electrical Repairs
When you turn the key in the ignition and nothing happens, it can cause a lot of stress and worry. However, we can accurately pinpoint the reason and complete a quick repair to get you back on the road. And we offer free roadside assistance for any customers getting repairs at our shop, so if you’re at the side of the road or stuck in your driveway, give us a call. We can repair and replace:
- Batteries – Often, we can jump your battery to get your car running. However, batteries usually only last for about three to five years, so it might be time for a new one, which we can replace for you.
- Alternator – If your car starts after jumping your battery, but it won’t start again the next time you need it to, you could have an alternator issue. A bad alternator won’t do its job of charging the battery for a reliable start the next time. We can replace your vehicle’s alternator if that’s the problem.
- Starter – If your engine doesn’t turn over, we can replace your starter to provide you with worry-free starting power. Starters fail due to loose wiring, damaged parts, oil leaks, and bad fuses. We’ll find out what’s causing your issue.
- Fuses & Lights – If your car is starting fine, but there are lights, power windows, heating and cooling functions, or a radio that isn’t functioning, we can help correct these electrical problems. You could be dealing with blown fuses or wiring issues.
