Your vehicle alternator converts mechanical energy to electrical energy. Some symptoms of a faulty alternator include trouble starting, dimming lights and a car that stalls while you are driving. Among many other things, an alternator charges up your car battery while driving so, when it fails, you won’t be able to start or continue driving your car.
If your engine won’t turn on or you experience a grinding noise when you try to turn on your car, your starter motor might be failing. Starters are essential for initiating the engine operation. When you turn the ignition switch the starter motor is engaged which then helps to spin the engine over, sucking in air and fuel.
Electric energy stored in your car battery powers the ignition system, as well as the starter motor and your car lights. If you find yourself needing to jump start your car for no obvious reason (such as leaving the interior lights on overnight) your battery may be failing. If your battery is no longer functioning optimally, you can have it tested and, from there, you can choose to have it replaced or repaired depending on the test results. Whether you need to test, charge, replace, install or recycle your car battery, we can help.
