As technology advances, the electrical, inner workings of your car are getting more and more complicated. These systems are intricate and can be challenging to diagnose and service if you are not dealing with a trained professional. Without the help of a certified and trained professional, misdiagnosed electrical issues within your car can lead to wasted money and time for you. It is critical to find a mechanic that can not only successfully test your electrical system but accurately diagnose the problem and offer an affordable plan to fix the issue.
Common Electrical Issues that Impact your vehicle:
We’ve all been there. You get out to your car put the key in the ignition and nothing. If your car refuses to even turn over, it could be an issue with the battery. While we often associate dead batteries with mistakenly leaving out car lights on, there can be other issues that are draining the battery. For example, corrosion can speed up battery deterioration.
The car’s alternator is responsible for charging the battery. It is the alternator’s job to recharge the battery so that the battery can power other electrical components in your car such as the stereo, lights, and power locks and window. Often a malfunctioning alternator is mistaken for a dead or dying battery. If a problem with the alternators is not properly identified and diagnosed, it can lead to wasted money through the purchase of a new battery.
The starter of the car works in tandem with the battery and the alternator to get you where you need to go. It uses power from the battery to turn the vehicle. When a starter is beginning to weaken or fall into disrepair, drivers may notice a faint clicking sound or a slow or weakened start.
Our Mobile Mechanic service will work with you to not only diagnose and repair damage to your electrical system in your vehicle, we will also work with you to schedule maintenance of these components to keep your car running longer with limited issues.
Car batteries should be replaced every four years, but in between the replacement, our mechanics can stretch the life by cleaning corrosion from the battery, recharging, and refilling essential liquids.
The alternator on your car should be replaced every three to four years. We can check to ensure you have a healthy voltage and replace less expensive pieces that will save you from a full replacement before the alternator’s time.
The starter of your vehicle should be inspected every 5,000 miles. Just like your health, regular check-ups of your vehicle can catch small problems before they turn into serious, expensive issues.
