  • Know your starting and charging system.

    Your vehicle’s starting and charging system is made up of a number of different components and is responsible for starting your vehicle, recharging your battery after starting supporting electrical loads when running. Here is how it works.

    • The Accessory drive belt drives the alternator and any other device with a connected pulley.
    • The Alternator charges the battery and powers electronics while the engine is running.
    • The Starter provides mechanical energy to start the engine.
    • The Battery connections cables and terminals that carry power to the starter and electronics.
    • The Battery supplies power to start the engine and power the car’s electronics.
    Starting and Charging System
  • A good running start.

    Starting your vehicle is one thing, but keeping it running properly is another. With a starting and charging system evaluation you can avoid a malfunction within this system. This evaluation includes:

    • Cleaning and inspecting cable ends and the battery to ensure a full charge
    • Inspection of fan/alternator and serpentine belt for signs of wear and proper adjustment if needed
