The Basics Behind Starting & Charging System Check Services at Pat's Auto Center

The starting and charging system is responsible for getting an engine to run and for keeping different components charged. The starting system involves a number of parts, including the ignition switch, starter, and flywheel. Using energy from the battery, the starter uses a gear to interact with the engine. Without a starter, an engine would be inoperable. The charging system, which includes the battery, alternator, and voltage regulator, play an equally important role. The battery is needed to send electricity to the starter. The alternator powers all the electrical components by generating electrical currents, and the voltage regulator ensures that the output of the alternator does not over- or under-charge the components dependent on the electrical current. Together, the starting and charging systems interact with one-another to keep a vehicle operating for its driver.

Why Should You Have Starting & Charging System Check Services Performed at Pat's Auto Center?

The various components that make up your starting and charging system are not impervious to failure from constant use and wear. Warning signs for a starting and charging system include dim headlights, clicking or growling noises, and the presence of dashboard warning lights. During a starting and charging system service, our staff will review the voltage level of your battery, test your alternator, and look over your starter. An inefficient starting and charging system can lead to engine failure, which is makes routine maintenance extremely important. Some components, like the battery, may give little warning before they fail. Our service staff combines the proper tools with extensive automotive knowledge to test and repair the components of your vehicle’s starting and charging system.
