Electrical, Starting, Charging, & Vehicle Wiring System Experts
Your vehicle’s electrical system is involved in regulating multiple electrical processes to start your vehicle’s engine and keep it running. The starting system consists of the battery, a starter motor, responsible for starting the engine, while the charging system consists of an alternator. The charging system is responsible for routing energy throughout the entire electrical process while sustaining the battery’s charge. The battery supplies the electric power necessary to start the vehicle. This process starts when you turn the ignition. Then, the starting system sends power from the battery to the starter solenoid to the starter motor, which turns the engine in order to begin the internal combustion process. The alternator powers the other critiacal and complex electrical components such as computers, modules, sensors, relay’s and resistors in your vehicle while a voltage regulator controls the voltage supplied to each component. The regulator also ensures that the alternator maintains the battery’s charge so that the entire cycle can continue.
Electrical and Electronic Systems
The electrical and electronic systems in your vehicle are responsible for routing power and information in order to dictate the behavior of certain systems. The electrical systems are linked by wiring, fuses, circuit breakers, and relays. Loose or broken wiring, poor pin fits, and broken connectors or switches may lead to intermittent power or a completely inoperative system. When you begin experiencing trouble with your electrical and electronic systems, ask yourself these questions: How often does this problem occur, and how long does this problem persist? Don’t let a dead battery leave you stranded. Your Affinity Auto technician will inspect your entire charging system to determine if a dead battery is caused by an electrical drain from within the vehicle and provide the necessary repairs.
You can count on Affinity Auto’s ASE Certifeid Electrical Diagnostic System Experts to diagnose and repair your failed and intermittently failing electrical system problems.
