Most modern vehicles rely on a battery to provide the spark that starts the engine. Small yet durable, your battery holds voltage internally until you need it and that voltage is replenished after starting your engine by a Battery Charging System. The Battery Charging System is complex with a variety of vital parts but you’ve probably heard about the alternator that is responsible for recharging your battery when its voltage dips below a certain level. The endless work that your battery does with electricity, sending a charge to the starter and recharging constantly from the alternator, will eventually wear your battery out. If this happens, you will likely have warning signs that your battery is dying but that is no guarantee.
We often hear from our customers that they went out to start their car before work on a winter morning and their battery is dead and won’t hold a charge at all. They got stuck with an immovable vehicle because of a dead battery. One of the best ways to make sure your vehicle will start every morning throughout the winter is to make sure your battery is good and strong and your Battery Charging System is at factory specifications.Signs that you have a Battery Charging System Problem
