Minneapolis electrical system repair
The battery is the backbone of your vehicle’s electrical system as it supplies power to the starter and ignition system. Your vehicle’s battery also delivers the extra power needed when the electrical load exceeds the alternator’s supply. You should have your battery and it’s connections checked at every oil change. If your battery is more than three years old, it’s a good idea to think about replacing it. The alternator is your car’s electrical charger, it helps power the other electrical loads of your car. We suggest having your alternator’s drive belt checked at every oil change; a loose alternator belt can reduce alternator output and run down your battery. Other components included in the electrical system are the starter, power windows, power steering, headlights and other exterior lights, windshield wipers, defroster and more. If you think you maybe be experiencing an electrical issue in your vehicle, the technicians at Green Garage will pinpoint what is going on and the cause.
