Why is it important to get my vehicle’s electric system serviced?
No matter the type, every car relies on a fully functional electrical system for safe and reliable operation. There are dozens of electrical components used to route power in your vehicle’s electrical system and these can vary greatly depending to your vehicle’s specifics (its make, model and age.)
Typically, your electrical system includes your car battery, alternator and starter. However, a lot of new vehicles also feature heavy-duty computer systems that affect things like steering, brakes, sensors, and more. All of these electrical components can make it difficult to diagnose the exact cause of a vehicle’s electrical problems, but it’s true that most tend to begin with your battery.
How do I know when it’s time to have my vehicle’s electrical system serviced?
Batteries usually last between three and seven years, so it’s a wise idea to replace your battery every four years to ensure the safety of your vehicle. Have your car’s electrical system checked immediately if:
- Your vehicle won’t start — you turn your key and hear a clicking, grinding sound or no sound at all
- Interior or dashboard lights do not illuminate properly
- Your vehicle runs well enough, but the headlights dim when you’re traveling at low speeds or when you’re idling at a stop
