Meeting Your Car's Electrical Needs

After the battery starts the engine, the alternator provides electricity to meet your car's needs. A warning light, or discharge indication can be an indication of alternator failure. However, before you decide to replace your alternator, the alternator drive belt should be checked. If it is loose, and the voltage regulator isn't working properly they may result in a charge warning light or a discharge indication on the anmeter to appear. Sometimes a failed alternator may be indicated by a shrill noise that increases in pitch as engine speed increases. This is caused by a bad diode. A diode is a solid state electronic device in the alternator that changes or rectifies alternating current into direct current for use by the car's electrical system.

If the charge warning light on your dashboard lights up, don't hesitate to bring your vehicle into our shop and have an experienced technician take a look at it. Our expert staff receives ongoing training and support and stays on top of the latest automotive repair techniques. We can thoroughly diagnose an electrical problem, and give you an estimate you can trust. All of our work is guaranteed. Call us today!
