The charging system keeps the battery from going dead as the demand for more voltage is required as a result of accessory load. The steady supply of voltage is crucial to the operation of today’s vehicles due to the increased use of sophisticated electronics. The lack of a steady supply of voltage can result in computer malfunction due to the lack or fluctuation in voltage. A charging system that overcharges your vehicles electrical system can cause serious damage to highly sensitive electrical components resulting in costly repairs.

The starting system comprises of a starter motor, starter solenoid, starter relay, neutral safety switch and ignition switch. A vehicle that doesn’t crank may or may not be caused by a faulty starter. Diagnosing the starting system correctly can save a lot of time and headaches. A starter draw test will determine if the starter is drawing more amperage than is needed to turn the engine over, and a circuit test will determine if all the other components are functioning properly and that voltage is present when end where it is needed.

The right equipment and technician are crucial in arriving at a proper diagnosis of an electrical problem. Simply changing a battery, alternator, or starter may only act as a quick fix. Determining if there is another electrical problem that caused malfunction in these components will keep the malfunction from reoccurring. Only a proper electrical system analysis will accurately diagnose the situation correctly. It is highly recommended that an analysis be performed with ANY charging or starting system problem.
