Major components of the charging systems include the battery, the alternator, and the starter.
Car batteries store electrical energy used to start a car. When you turn a key in the ignition, the starter system draws a lot of energy from the battery. But once the engine is running, the alternator generates electrical energy, which is used to recharge car’s battery, as well as to power car’s electrical system as well as the entertainment system.
Many sub-systems of your vehicle require electrical current to function – fuel injectors, airbag system, steering system, fuel pump, ignition system (which turns low voltage into the high voltage that powers the spark plugs that ignite the fuel-air mixture that powers your vehicle).
In addition to the normal factors – age and use – that cause wear and tear of your vehicle’s charging system, modern cars introduce new factors – expanded entertainment and data acquisition options. As modern cars are stuffed full of entertainment options, communication options, and sensors to keep on-board computers informed about the environment and status of various sub-systems of your vehicle, the power requirements grow larger and larger. This in turn puts more strain on the battery (particularly when the engine is off) and on the charging systems in general.
Symptoms that tell you the charging system needs professional attention:
- Dimming of interior lights
- Check engine light illuminating
- Battery warning light coming on
- Difficulties starting the engine
