Many drivers associate their vehicle’s electrical power with their car battery. While this is accurate in some aspects, the alternator and charging system within your vehicle actually do a lot of the electrical work. While your battery is needed to start up your vehicle, the alternator and charging system work together to recycle energy while your vehicle runs and transfer that electrical charge back into the battery to power your electrical systems.
Without a working alternator or charging system, your vehicle would probably start up but it wouldn’t run for very long. If you are experiencing battery issues or the battery warning light is on, the ASE certified technicians here at Schorie Auto Repair in Mesa, Az can help. We work on most makes and models of vehicles and can perform the tests necessary to pinpoint the source of your problems, whether you have an alternator issue or problem with a separate charging system component.
If there is a problem with your vehicle’s alternator or charging system, you will notice one or more of the following symptoms:
- Battery warning light is on
- Car starts but won’t stay running
- Dim headlights or interior lights
- Problems with electrical components, such as power locks or windows
If you are experiencing any of the symptoms listed above, bring your vehicle into the professionals here at Schorie Auto Repair for an inspection. We will perform tests to determine which component of the charging system is causing you issues and provide you with information regarding what repairs or services are necessary to fix it, along with a full estimate of our work.
