Your charging system is crucial to your car. If your charging system is having problems, so will you; your lights may not work, your car may not start and worse, your car may die as you drive it.

Your charging system essentially involves your battery and your alternator, but there are a myriad of other components that help make this system work properly. No longer is it simply a question of the output of your battery and the storage capacity of your alternator. Due to the number of electrical demands placed on your car, such as CDs, TVs, GPS devices and any number of things you can charge or run through your cigarette lighter or USB port, your charging system has components that help to balance the load to ensure that its primary job can be performed. All of these components make diagnosing and isolating electrical problems one of the most daunting tasks that face service technicians today.
Honest and Professional Services You Can Trust
If you begin to have electrical problems, you have to have knowledgeable technicians service your vehicle. Sure, it is easy for someone to test your battery and determine that it should be replaced, but if the car’s electrical system is not functioning properly and the service technician did not identify the parasitic drain on your battery, you could find yourself back at shop with the same problem, and another dead battery.
This is why you should find an auto repair service you can trust. When you come in and present with a charging system problem, we will check your entire system to pinpoint exactly where the problem is. We will check not only the battery’s charging capacity, but we will also check to ensure that the entire system is working the way it should.
We have special tools that can check your system’s components from beginning to end. Whether you are having trouble starting the car or you notice the headlights are dimming, we will make sure we identify the cause of the drain before we recommend the course of action to take.
Many times, if you come into a shop with a dead battery, they will replace your battery and allow you to move on. The problem is that it may not be the battery that is the cause of the problem, but may be the symptom of the problem. Your alternator charges your battery. If your alternator is failing, your battery will not receive a full charge. When you replace your battery your car will behave as you expect and you will think you’re good to go, but as you drive, the alternator will fail to recharge the battery and you will soon find yourself right back where you started.
