What Are The Common Repairs?
When you bring your vehicle to the professionals at Top Notch Automotive with a suspected electrical problem, we’ll check it to get to the root cause of its symptoms. In the meantime, we’re glad to share some of the more common electrical repairs most car owners will likely experience. The most frequent source of trouble is a dead battery. The battery contains stored electrical energy that’s used to start your automobile and power various features when the engine isn’t operating. If you’ve accidentally left something turned on that has drained the battery, a jump start will often solve the problem. However, all batteries eventually pass their prime and need replacing to ensure reliability. If the battery is good yet not charging, the suspected issue is the alternator. This provides power to various components and recharges the battery while the engine runs. If your vehicle or a component suddenly stops working, underlying causes could be frayed or broken wires or a blown fuse. Even the spark plugs are electrical. They produce the spark needed to aid in the engine’s fuel combustion. Finally, modern cars work using an engine control module or ECM. This relies on a computer and electrical current to direct your engine’s activities to maximize efficiency and performance.
