When your vehicle has an electrical issue, it can be hard to tell where the problem is coming from. At its core, electricity is the flow of electrons within a conductor. Some vehicle functions that are possible because of electricity include starting your engine, controlling vehicle emissions, charging your phone, and opening your windows. Understanding how electricity works can help you understand what repairs need to be made to your auto electrical systems. To get electricity to go where they want it, automobile manufacturers use conductors, which allow electrons to move freely, and resistors, materials that inhibit electron flow.
There are certain nuances each vehicle has when it comes to its electric system, and we at Continental Motor Works pay close attention to these nuances whether you drive a Honda, Toyota, GMC, Ford, or something else. In older vehicles, a problem with your electric system probably means there is something wrong with your battery. However, newer vehicles have more complex auto electrical systems, which have more potential for failure because of their extensive nature. If there is an issue with your alternator, battery, or another component of your vehicle's electrical system, you could experience a wide range of symptoms because modern vehicles are more reliant on their electrical systems. The more information you give us about your vehicle, the faster we can identify what part of your vehicle is malfunctioning. Here are some symptoms to look out for that indicate your vehicle needs an auto electrical service:
- Your engine doesn't start up correctly.
- You're having problems with your battery.
- Your headlights and/or other lights are malfunctioning.
- You have blown fuses.
- There is a burning plastic smell coming from your vehicle.
