Western Tire & Auto can help diagnose and repair all electrical issues your vehicle is going through. Keeping up with your electrical system is critical in making sure your vehicle runs smoothly. If a symptom is unnoticed or ignored, this can lead to a range of other issues, and no one wants that!
Your vehicle’s electrical system is comprised of the battery, alternator and the starter.
When your vehicle is in motion, the battery is what keeps the electrical current going for your vehicle’s entire electrical system, so without this, all else fails.
The alternator can be thought of as the power house to your vehicle’s battery. If your vehicle’s electrical system was solely running on a battery, the vehicle wouldn’t stay running very long. Without the battery and alternator working together, each would not exist on their own, so it’s important to keep this in mind when noticing signs such as weakend headlights, trouble starting your vehicle or the battery not maintaining its charge.
The starter is started by the ignition key, which then triggers a motor that rotates in order to start up your engine. The starter is unable to start without the battery and the alternator.
As you can see, without each and every component of the electrical system, your vehicle is useless. The expert mechanics at Western Tire & Auto are equipped to handle all of your electrical repairs. Come see us today in St. Peters, Missouri!
