Description of Electrical and Electronic Systems
The vehicle’s electrical system is quickly becoming an extremely sophisticated mix of machinery and computer technology. Many modern cars leave behind the traditional display of information in favor of digital readouts and include exciting new technology to assist you while driving. This can lead to one or two blown fuses causing all sorts of unexplained issues.
There are essentially three parts to every car electrical system: the battery, the alternator, and the starter. If one or more of these systems is not working properly, you will see the battery light on your dashboard light up, or the dashboard might read “Check Charging Systems.” When this happens, you will need to get car electrical repair before your car completely dies and leaves you stranded on the side of the road. Of course, a faulty electrical system can also cause other problems. Anything from a failing turn signal to an incorrect reading on your digital odometers could be to blame when it comes to electrical components. Most of the time, these issues can be resolved by simply replacing a blown car fuse or reconnecting a loose wire. On occasion, these troubles require a more in-depth approach to your electrical system, and extensive repairs must be made. Because of the danger to your vehicle and yourself, it is recommended that you allow a professional to conduct your car electrical repair. Much of the information required to identify and repair an electrical issue is located in the vehicle’s service manual, and it not readily available to the general public. There are also special tools necessary to complete many repairs safely, many of which are not easy to come by.
The electrical and electronic systems in your vehicle are responsible for routing power and information to dictate certain system’s behavior. 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?
If your vehicle experiences an electrical or electronic systems failure, it is beneficial to have the problem repaired quickly. A vehicle with electrical problems may not start, or it may become inoperative. Our experts can diagnose and repair problems during an electrical and electronic systems service. We can locate shorts, grounds, open, and resistance problems in electrical and electronic circuits, and we can repair wiring harnesses and connectors along with electrical wiring and solder repair. Our staff can also diagnose the cause of uneven headlight brightness, intermittent lights, dim lights, and inoperative lights. We can also service headlights and bulbs as well as correct intermittent turning signal and hazard light operation. Motor-driven accessory circuits, heated glass operation, and electric lock operation are all concerns for our staff as we begin to diagnose the electrical and electronic issue. In the end, our staff will work hard to get you driving a safe and functional vehicle again.
