Electical System Troubles

Your  electrical system includes your car's battery, alternator and  starter. Many new cars and trucks also feature sophisticated computer systems  that affect functions like steering, brakes, sensors, and more. All of  these electrical components make it difficult to diagnose the cause of  vehicle electrical problems, but most begin and end with your battery. 

To troubleshoot your vehicle's electrical system, the trained technicians at Coale's Automotive use specialized diagnostic equipment to access your vehicle's data and  pinpoint the cause of any electrical problems. Our electrical system  service includes:  

  • A thorough visual inspection of battery and case condition
  • Check to ensure your battery can still deliver adequate power, and replace it if necessary
  • Electrical cable connections are examined and adjusted, if necessary
  • Engine diagnostics may be necessary to troubleshoot sophisticated systems or complex electrical problems

Signs of Electircal System Problems

Batteries  usually last between three and seven years, so it's a smart idea to  replace yours every four years as a safety measure. Have your vehicle's  electrical system checked immediately if:  

  • Your vehicle won't start - you turn your key and hear clicking, grinding, or no sound at all
  • Interior or dashboard lights do not illuminate properly
  • Your vehicle runs well, but the headlights dim while you're traveling at low speeds, or idling at a stop
