Your vehicle's electrical system is quickly becoming an extremely sophisticated mix of machinery and computer technology. Many modern cars are leaving behind the traditional display of information in favor of digital readouts, and including exciting new technology to assist you while driving. This can lead to one or two blown fuses causing all sorts of unexplained issues. The best thing you can do is to familiarize yourself with your vehicle’s electrical system and take a few precautions against any type of automotive electrical failure. The more you know about your own vehicle, the better you will be able to take care of it.
From the engine, there are a few places where electric issues can occur. The most recognized and easily solved problem originates from your vehicle’s battery. The two posts on top of your battery are the first connection point and distribute power to the rest of your vehicle. If these two posts are corroded or dirty, it can bring your vehicle to a standstill, or it may never start at all.
Another important part of your vehicle’s electrical system is the alternator. Your alternator is what allows your car battery to be recharged while you drive. Without this component operating properly, your vehicle would only be able to start a few times before the battery went dead.
