Starting and Charging System Service in Sycamore, IL

The importance of inspecting your vehicle’s Starting, Charging and Batteries

A typical vehicle is made up of several electrical processes that are required to get the engine started and to ensure your vehicle keeps running. These processes are the starting and charging system; the starting system is made up of a starter solenoid, a starter motor and the battery while the charging system is made up of the voltage regulator and the alternator. If there is a problem with the starting system, then your vehicle will not start.

How do the starting and charging systems work?

The charging system sustains the battery charge and also transmits the energy needed for the electrical process. When you turn the ignition, the battery provides the electric power that is required for the vehicle to start. Thereafter, the starting system transfers power to the starter motor and solenoid from the battery and this starts the internal combustion process within the engine. The other electrical components are powered by the alternator while the voltage supplied is determined by the regulator. The entire cycle continues because the regulator ensures that the battery remains charged by the alternator.

The advantages of Starting, Charging and Batteries Inspection

A tell-tale sign of a problem with the starting and charging system is slow turning engines and dim headlights. If your battery has run out, your car would not start and this would necessitate a jump start which may not work in some cases. By inspecting these components, you will be able to detect any problem with your vehicle early, thereby preventing further damage. You will also save money on expensive repairs in the long run.

If you experience any of these problems, then you need to schedule a service with us, so we can inspect your vehicle and provide you with the solution.
