Why Servicing Your Auto Electrical System is Essential to Your Vehicle's Health

When you are having a vehicle electrical problem, we gather as much information about the symptoms as possible from you. The more information you can supply, the faster we can diagnose and repair your car's electrical problem.  Time is money and we want to make sure you get the most value from your car, truck, SUV or van electrical repairs.

So when you are having vehicle electrical issues, pay particular attention to when the symptoms are appearing. Can you make the problem happen for us? What driving conditions are you in; rain, accelerating, braking, using power accessories like air conditioner or interior lights. When you begin experiencing trouble with your electrical and electronic systems, ask yourself these questions:

  1. How often does this problem occur
  2. how long does this problem persist?

The more information you are able to provide to our staff during an electrical and electronic systems service, the quicker we will be able to recreate the same conditions, and ultimately hone in on the exact problem using our strategy based diagnostics. This could be anything from the simple dashboard lights to complex computer systems that control safety and security features like Anti theft, keyless entry, automatic braking ABS systems, Tire Pressure Monitors, Air Bags, Ignition control systems, Entertainment systems, Lighting systems, Traction Control, All Wheel Drive AWD systems, Heating & Air Conditioning systems, and even electric power steering. All of these little clues will help us get to the root cause of your electric problems and fix them fast. No observation is too small, this includes noting whether the problem happens intermittently or all of the time and whether there have been recent repairs somewhere else.

The electrical system is fundamental to a vehicle's operation and gives power to an array of parts including the alternator, starter, and battery. Each vehicle's electrical system has its own nuances based on its age, make and model. Some newer vehicles have a complex computer system that interacts with vehicle functions including sensors, brakes, steering, and more.  Troubleshooting these electrical components often requires the use of an advanced diagnostic tools, which we have in house, along with skilled technicians that know how to use them effectively. 

When to Have Your Auto Electrical System Serviced

There are a number of red flags that indicate the need for a servicing of your vehicle's electrical system. If you try to start your car and you hear grinding, clicking, or no sound, it’s time to call a technician and schedule an appointment. The average car battery lasts between three and six years. Therefore, you should replace your car's battery after four years to be on the safe side. If your vehicle's dashboard lights do not illuminate properly, the electrical system is likely malfunctioning. Another indicator of a potential electrical system issue is if your vehicle’s headlights darken as you drive at low speeds.

Electrical System Services

The electrical and electronic systems of vehicles are integral to almost every system on your vehicle and are being ever more complicated with advanced technology.  They are responsible for routing power, ground, signals, information, and serial data communication throughout the vehicle's controls and systems. The electrical systems are linked by wiring, fuses, circuit breakers, and relays. Loose or broken wiring, poor pin fits, and broken connectors or switches may lead to intermittent power or a completely inoperative system.

What drives your automotive electrical system:

Batteries: The battery supplies electric energy which powers the ignition system, the starter motor, and the lights of an automotive. We recommend checking your battery with every visit to your mechanic, and when you have your services done at Team Ryan Automotive we will check it automatically every time just to be safe.  If you need to jump-start your vehicle in the morning, your battery could be failing. When a battery starts deteriorating, it can either be replaced or repaired - this will depend on the severity of the damage.  Even if your battery test comes out fine, we still recommend you replace it every four years to prevent an emergency situation. No one likes to be stranded with a dead battery!  Battery replacement, charging, installation, testing, and recycling - we handle it all.

Starter Motor: A starter is a motor (electric, hydraulic or pneumatic) that rotates the internal combustion engine to initiate the engine's operation. It converts the stored electrical energy from your battery into mechanical energy used to turn over your engine. It all begins with once you turn your ignition key or push the start button, the starter cranks the engine to start your vehicle. Since your car starter draws a large amount of power from your battery, if there is going to be a warning sign of an electrical problem this is when it will give you some clues. If you notice any new noises or that it seems to be cranking slower than normal, let us know right away and we'll fix it!

Starters are important parts of your car's engine and their failure would translate to your car's failure. When your car's starter develops problems, seek expert help. At Team Ryan Automotive, we have experts who can handle all your starter needs to get you back on the road quickly!

Alternator: Once your engine has started, your alternator takes over and begins to replace the power lost from the starter engagement, which provides power for the electrical system and recharges the battery.  Simply, an alternator is an automotive device that converts mechanical energy to electric energy (ac).The electric system runs headlamps, light bulbs, radio and other electrical accessories. Alternators are important parts of your car's engine and their failure would translate to your car's failure. When your car's alternator develops problems, seek your friends at Team Ryan Automotive, mechanics you can trust!

Wiring: The wiring in your cars electrical system is vast and complex as it connects the battery to the starter motor, the alternator to the battery, and runs the entire length of the vehicle to power every electrical circuit available. The very large battery cables transmit several hundred amps of current during cranking, and the smallest wires may only carry milliamps of current to sensitive computer systems and sensors.

As with all electrical problems, our expert mechanics are trained to follow a strategy based diagnostics approach will efficiently and effectively can be applied to all diagnostics. It all starts with the battery and wiring systems to diagnose an electrical problem quickly and properly. Many electrical problems can be signaled by a warning light on your dashboard that may alert us to where your issue began. If you notice any warning lamps illuminated on the dash while driving, let us know right away so we can get to the bottom of it.
