Electrical Repair & Charging, Starting & Batteries
The key components of Electrical and Electronic System in a vehicle are alternator, battery,starter, cooling fans, head lamps, tail lamps, blinkers, brake lights, wiper, power window, power steering etc.
The battery is the main constituent of your vehicle’s electrical system as it transmits power to the starter. Also, delivers power to many electronic components when alternator is not able to supply enough power e.g. playing car radio with engine off. If the battery is more than three years old,it’s a better idea to think about replacing it. Battery maintenance contains visual and physical check for loose connections, dirt and rust, cleaning cable and battery terminals. Vehicle batteries should be inspected at least every two years. Car Tech Tires technicians will inspect your battery for electrolyte level, battery connections condition and battery cleanliness.
The starter positioned on the back of the engine, it uses the electrical energy of the battery and converts it into mechanical energy, and this mechanical energy is used to start crankshaft turn. We suggest having the starter inspected, draws the accurate amount of current.
If the power came from an ordinary battery, it would run down soon. So a car has rechargeable battery and a charging system to keep it topped up. The battery is charged by an alternator on modern cars. The alternator is vehicle’s electrical power generator. Its different components produce current for the recharging of vehicle’s battery. Alternator also provides power to the other electrical components of vehicle. A warning light on the dashboard glows when the battery is not being adequately charged. For example, when the engine stops.
If you observe symbols of a poor alternator, poor light operation and a dead battery, than the vehicle may have issues with alternator. Car Tech Tires has expert technicians for battery inspection, electrical repair, service and replacement needs.
