Electrical Systems

Your car’s electrical system includes the alternator, the battery, and the starter. And the Car-X Man can service them all.

The Alternator

The alternator is your car’s electrical charger. Signs that you might have a problem with your vehicle’s alternator include:

  • Poor light operation
  • Dead battery
  • Frequent bulb replacement
  • Dashboard warning lights.

Understanding the alternator…

The alternator is your car’s electrical charger. It generates direct current for recharging the battery. It also helps power the other electrical loads of your car.

Battery

The battery supplies power to the starter and ignition system. It also delivers the extra power needed when the electrical load exceeds the alternator’s supply.

If your battery is more than three years old, it’s a good idea to think about replacing it. Car-X Tire & Auto carries a variety of quality name-brand batteries.

Understanding the battery…

The battery is the backbone of your vehicle’s electrical system. It supplies power to the starter and ignition system. It also delivers the extra power needed when the electrical load exceeds the alternator’s supply.

Starter

The starter cranks the engine when the ignition switch is turned on.
Each spring, it’s a good idea to have your starter tested by your Car-X Man to make sure it is drawing the correct amount of current.
