PST Automotive & Precision Stereo Technology 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 the source of electrical currents necessary to start the engine. The battery provides power to your vehicle’s accessories and electrical parts; it allows them to operate even when your vehicle’s engine is not running. Additionally, components such as your engine and starter rely on the battery for power; they cannot run without a properly functioning battery. Your battery is your vehicle’s voltage stabilizer for the entire electrical system.
Most vehicle batteries need to be replaced every few years, depending on the conditions in which you drive. Extreme weather, continued use of vehicle accessories and other conditions can lead to shorter battery life. Over time, your battery loses juice, and you may need to occasionally jump-start your vehicle in order to get it running. If your vehicle is showing signs of lessened battery life, such as delayed start time, you may need to get your battery replaced.
If your battery dies before you replace it, you might be stranded without a vehicle. The expert team at PST Automotive & Precision Stereo Technology can examine, diagnose and replace your battery as needed. You can trust us to service your battery and, if necessary, help you find and install the perfect new battery for your vehicle.
The alternator can be thought of as the powerhouse 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 weakened 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.
