Modesto Starting, Charging and Batteries (alternator, battery, starter)
A common sign that there is a problem with your vehicle’s starting and charging system or a dead battery is trouble starting your vehicle. If your vehicle’s battery is dead, it won’t start and you may notice that other parts of your vehicle aren’t working, such as the radio and power locks. The regular life of a battery is typically between 3-5 years. The battery will usually work properly without much maintenance unless there is a problem with the starting and charging system. A problem with your starting and charging system can prevent the battery from receiving the proper charge.
At Auto & Fleet Mechanic in Modesto, CA, our ASE certified technicians will perform a free battery and charging system test to determine if the issue is the battery or the charging system.
Signs of a battery or charging system problem:
- Battery light turns on
- Car won’t start or stops unexpectedly while driving
- Dashboard lights are dimmer than usually
- Radio, power locks, or power windows not working
- Vehicle cranks slowly
Any of the issues above are usually indication of a battery, alternator, or starting system problem. A faulty alternator can cause your battery to die unexpectedly. The alternator’s job is to recycle energy throughout your vehicle to help power your vehicle’s battery. A simple test at our shop can determine the issue and help us repair your vehicle quickly so you can get back on the road.
