The Battery 

The battery is the reason your vehicle powers up. It supplies power to the ignition system and the start to get the car going. If your battery or its connections are bad, your vehicle will not start. It's important to know the age of your battery and recognize any warning signs that it is going bad.

The Alternator

The alternator takes over once the engine is powered on. It charges the battery as it runs, giving it additional power. If your alternator goes out, your vehicle's electrical system will not work correctly. 

The Starter

The starter is the auto part that actually starts your engine. The battery offers power, but it won't turn the engine on. The starter rotates the flywheel and activates the crankshaft that throws the pistons into motion. If your starter isn't working, you cannot start the vehicle at all.

Common Auto Electrical Issue Signs

The best way to avoid electrical system failures is to have your vehicle regularly serviced. We'll check all parts of your vehicle to ensure they're working correctly. The most common signs of auto electrical issues include the following: 

  • Slow Start – If you hear a clicking noise when you turn the key, there is insufficient current flowing through the parts to activate the engine. The source is typically the battery or the starter. 
  • Blown Fuses – If you have an electrical issue, your fuses are designed to blow. A blown fuse is usually a minor issue, but multiple blown fuses often indicate a larger electrical problem.
  • Vehicle Loses Power – You may notice your vehicle losing power if you have an alternator issue that doesn't allow the battery enough charge. 
  • Malfunctioning Lights – If your lights aren't working correctly, the alternator or battery often has an issue.
