Electrical Systems & Diagnostics

Electrical Systems Diagnostics Photo 3Accurate Auto also specializes in electrical systems diagnostics. From headlights to alternators, we want to make sure the electronic components of your vehicle are working the way they should be. Sometimes, a simple electrical issue can compromise the overall functioning of the vehicle.

There are a number of important parts associated with your electrical system. They are your alternator, battery, and the starter. Without any of these working properly, the car cannot run. Our Maple Grove electrical systems diagnostics service can make sure you are up and running in no time.

Alternator

The alternator is the electrical charger of the car. It is responsible for a direct current that recharges the battery. It also assists in the powering of other electrical loads, such as the radio and the headlights.

It is ideal to have the drive belt of the alternator checked every time the oil is changed. We at Accurate Auto will do that for you. The reason is because a loose belt can cause the alternator output to reduce and this can kill the battery. It is also important to have the entire charging system checked annually in the spring to catch problems before they start. When problems do start, they include a dead battery, poor headlight operation, frequent headlight bulb replacement, and dashboard warning lights come on. If it is necessary, our Maple Grove electrical systems diagnostic service includes the installation of a new alternator.

Battery

The battery is what makes the electrical system of the vehicle work. It gives the ignition system and the starter the power it needs to turn the car on. It also provides the extra power required when the electrical load exceeds the supply contained within the alternator.

The battery and its connections should be checked every time the oil is changed and we can do that for you. In addition, it is good to have a battery that is over three years old replaced. We can help you with battery replacement.

Starter And Other Electrical Parts

The starter is what triggers the engine to crank when the ignition switch is turned on. The starter is located in the front of the transmission, which is the backside of the engine. This is another component that should be checked every spring. What we look for is the amount of current that is being drawn. If it is not correct, we can correct it.

Other electrical components that we can work on include power steering, power windows, windshield wipers, exterior lights, headlights, the defroster, and more. Because we offer so many services, we are your one-stop-shop for all of your vehicle repair needs.
