The automotive lighting and electrical system in your car are responsible for directing energy to your power windows, power locks, the lighting and headlight system, powers your engine and much more. Your automotive electrical system is connected throughout your car by an assembly of circuits, wires, fuses, and relays. But the sad news is that it only takes a minor mishap to make the entire electrical system to fail since each component of a car is linked to another component in your car. Sometimes, the only requirement for you to be stuck in your driveway or a parking lot is one simple electrical component, like a circuit fuse or relay, to blow out.

There are so many reasons why a vehicle electrical system fails, and some of these reasons include broken switches, loose wiring, improper fitting pins or problematic connections. You could jolt wires lose during a rough drive or if you are in an accident. You can encounter problems with wiring if you purchased a second-hand car, and the pre-purchase vehicle inspection didn’t detect and fix the faulty electrical system. There is also the issue of wear and tear which can make your vehicle wiring lose their normal shape over time. The above reasons are just some examples of why you should include wiring and your lighting system in a yearly tune-up to keep your vehicle running in a safe and good condition.

At Auto & Fleet Mechanic, we believe that a simple fuse is as important as the vehicle’s central wiring harness when it comes to a vehicles' internal wiring system. So to keep our clients safe when enjoying their ride, we look at connections, seek out shorts, check out the brightness of your headlights, check for faulty wiring harnesses, solder wires if necessary, and other electrical system repairs to provide top-quality solutions at affordable prices.

THE IMPORTANCE OF THE AUTO ELECTRICAL SYSTEM TO YOUR VEHICLE’S HEALTH

The fundamental operation of a vehicle is heavily reliant on the electrical system as it gives power to several vital parts such as the alternator, battery, and starter. Every car will have its own nuances based on age, make and model. Newer vehicles tend to come with a sophisticated computer system that interacts with the basic functional parts like your brakes, sensors, and steering but also has additional electrical component connections like your radio and Bluetooth, heads-up display, tire sensors, airbags, and other passenger comfort services. Additionally, these newer vehicles will sometimes require more attention than older vehicles due to the increased number of electrical components. To successfully troubleshoot these electrical components, there’s usually a need for advanced diagnostic technology which can only be matched by the experienced technician’s database.

When Should I Service my Auto Electrical System?

When you start to notice red flags such as hearing a grinding, clicking or no sound at all when trying to start your car, it's time to give your technician a call and schedule an appointment with us at Auto & Fleet Mechanic in Modesto, CA.

DIAGNOSING CAR ELECTRICAL PROBLEMS & CAR ELECTRICAL SOLUTIONS

The first step for any ASE experienced technician is running a computerized electrical diagnosis on your vehicle’s electrical system to identify the reason for the problem and then to formulate a repair process.

A check on the car’s battery, case condition, and integrity will show if it produces enough power. On finding out that a battery’s integrity has been compromised it’s best to replace the battery. The battery, adjoining cables, and other sensitive electronics should be working after a technician services a car’s electrical system.

WE WORK ON ALL PARTS

Do you have a dead battery, a misfiring starter or alternator? Auto & Fleet Mechanic will take care of all your electrical needs. Some of our services include:

Alternators

The alternator is the device that converts mechanical energy to electric energy. They are critical to a car's engine, and a failed or failing alternator is equivalent to an abandoned car. At Auto & Fleet Mechanic, we have a capable machine that can deal with your car and get it running as quickly as possible at the right price.

Batteries

The battery is like the human heart, without it, the body will no longer function. The same goes for your car battery. In its absence, your ignition system, starter, and the lights are left without power. When a cell goes bad, it can be replaced or repaired in some cases- this depends on how severe the damage is. Depending on the product, the average battery can run for three to six years, but to be safer, it’s better you change your battery after four years. We provide you with battery tests and replacement services at your convenience; we can also provide you with replacement, installation, charging, testing, recycling and more!

Starters

The starter is an (electric, hydraulic or pneumatic) motor that rotates the internal combustion engine to initiate the engine's operation. Starters are an essential component of your car, and the failure of your starter is the failure of your vehicle. For the best recommendation, repairs, and replacement schedule an appointment with us at Auto & Fleet Mechanic to get your car up and running - We also offer roadside assistance in some cases through one of our partner companies.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: When I hear a clicking noise when I turn the key. What’s the problem?
When you hear a noise when turning the key or starting the engine, then it is possible that you have an issue with your vehicle’s electrical or mechanical system like a dead battery, bad starter, bad ignition switch or any other possible component between the ignition and the engine. It is best to stop trying and contact your local Auto & Fleet Mechanic.

Q: Shouldn’t I replace a blown fuse on my own?
When you are yet to identify the problem that led to the fuse getting blown, there’s a risk it will continue to blow. Thus, it’s advised to identify the problem first.

Q: What factors influence my car’s electrical system?
Your battery’s life is most usually affected by temperatures, such as extreme heat or freezing temperatures, and your mileage. Short trips regularly will deter your car’s battery from fully recharging and overall, that will shorten its life expectancy. High temperatures are also detrimental to the alternator, and in general all electrical equipment because heat increases electrical resistance.
