What generates most of the
electricity in your vehicle is not the battery, but the alternator.
The alternator transforms
mechanical energy into electrical energy. It sends power to essential parts of
your vehicle like the headlights, the engine fan, ignition coils and various
parts of the fuel injection system. It powers non-essential, but still very
important parts like the radio and air conditioning system.
Itís important to have your
alternator checked regularly because itís not always readily apparent when it
fails. It can fail in stages and even when it goes completely, your battery will
take over for a short period of time.
Thatís why itís important
to get an inspection of your electrical system. We are electrical systems
experts. We will check your alternator, battery, ignition and starter.
The starter does the opposite
of the alternator. It changes electrical energy into mechanical energy. The
starter uses the electricity from the battery to start the crankshaft turn, and
that gets your car going.
The electrical systems of
todayís cars are complex. Your alternator, starter, ignition and battery are all
crucial to your cars performance and, more importantly, its safety. More and
more of todayís vehicles are being controlled by onboard computers. The
electrical system is more important than ever. Call Mobile Auto Repair San
