Electrical System

Auto Electrical Repairs Daytona Beach, FL The car’s electrical system is a complex network of components that run the vehicle and connects different aspects of it. The system transfers power to components like the alternator, battery, and starter. If the electrical system fails, your vehicle won’t function. Whether your car is new or old, servicing this system is a very important aspect of its maintenance.

At Blackstone Complete Automotive Repair, we have the skill and equipment needed to carry out thorough assessment and repair of the electrical system. We have serviced and maintained many car electrical systems in Daytona Beach, FL, and are very familiar with the process.

What Is Included In The Car’s Electrical System?

The electrical system includes many small and big parts, but some of the most important components of the system are:

  • Battery – The battery provides the power needed to kickstart an engine, which is why it is an essential component of the electrical system. It provides power to the fuel and ignition system. Without it, there’s no combustion and no movement.

  • Starter – The starter gets the engine moving. The battery will supply the amount needed for the starter motor to run, which powers the crankshaft and gets the engine pistons moving. If the starter fails, your engine won’t run.

  • Alternator – The alternator works when the engine is running and doesn’t need battery power. It keeps the battery charged and the vehicle electrical system functioning. If the alternator fails or is malfunctioning, your car won’t last long and will experience frequent problems.

Our technicians will check every component carefully to ensure the electrical system works well. If there’s a malfunction, they’ll carry out the required repairs and servicing.
