Battery, Starting and Charging

Your vehicle’s electrical system has three primary components – a battery, starter and alternator. All three of these things must work together for your electrical system to function properly.

The battery provides power to the vehicle’s onboard computers, fuel and ignition systems. Insufficient power to any or all of these systems will cause a condition where your vehicle will not start.

The starter motor receives power from the battery to turn over the engine, allowing it to run. If the starter motor fails, your engine cannot start the process of running the motor.

The alternator provides a constant and regulated voltage to the battery while the engine is running. The alternator keeps the battery charged and ensures proper electrical system function. If the alternator malfunctions or fails, you may experience erratic electrical system operation or lose power altogether.

Regular inspection and maintenance of the electrical system can help prevent and catch problems before turning into a costly and inconvenient repair.

We include a comprehensive battery, starting and charging inspection in our Level 2 and 3 Maintenance Service Packages.
