Electrical Problems & Service

Your vehicle's electrical system is quickly becoming an extremely sophisticated mix of machinery and computer technology. Many modern cars are leaving behind the traditional display of information in favor of digital readouts, and including exciting new technology to assist you while driving. This can lead to one or two blown fuses causing all sorts of unexplained issues.

The best thing you can do is to familiarize yourself with your vehicle electrical system and take a few precautions against any type of automotive electrical failure. The more you know about your own vehicle, the better you will be able to take care of it.

From the engine, there are a few places where electric issues can occur. The most recognized and easily solved problem originates from your vehicles battery. The two posts on top of your battery are the first connection point and distribute power to the rest of your vehicle. If these two posts are corroded or dirty, its can bring your vehicle to a standstill, or it may never start at all.

Another important part of your vehicles electrical system is the alternator. Your alternator is what allows your car battery to be recharged while you drive. Without this component operating properly, your vehicle would only be able to start a few times before the battery went dead.

Of course, a faulty electric system can also cause other problems. Anything from a failing turn signal to an incorrect reading on your digital odometers could be to blame when it comes to electrical components. Most of the time, these issues can be resolved by simply replacing a blown car fuse, or reconnecting a loose wire. On occasion, these troubles require a more in depth approach to your electrical system and extensive repairs must be made.

Because of the danger to your vehicle and yourself, it is recommended that you allow a professional to conduct your electrical repairs. Much of the information required to identify and repair an electrical issue is located in the vehicles service manual and it not readily available to the general public. There are also special tools necessary to safely complete many repairs, many of which are not easy to come by. Let the ASE certified technicians at Mikes Auto Repair give you peace of mind by allowing us to handle your electrical repairs in a timely and efficient manner.

One thing that can make electrical repairs extremely difficult to conduct is an intermittent issue. When a problem comes and goes, it can be extremely helpful to take note of the issue and the circumstances during which it occurs. This way, valuable time can be saved in determining what needs to be done to solve the problem once and for all. It is recommended that you have your entire electrical system evaluated from the ground up once every two years, or whenever a service is conducted.
