What Are Vehicle Electrical Diagnostics?
Electrical diagnostics use technology to identify issues with a car’s electrical system. Your vehicle contains an intricate network of wires that affects everything from your headlights to your radio. More modern car technology also includes essential safety features, like automatic braking and assisted steering, which are also run by your vehicle's electrical system.
Signs of Electrical Problems in Cars
From power to lights, your car's electrical system carries a lot of responsibility. When it starts to go haywire, you may notice issues with the ignition, problems with your headlights, dashboard lights, and so on.
If you're wondering how to know if your car has electrical problems, here are some telltale signs to contact a professional:
- Your engine does not start as soon as you turn on the ignition
- There is a grinding noise when you start your car
- Headlights, dashboard lights, or interior lights flicker
- Fuses frequently blow out
- Clicking sounds when accelerating or turning
- Smell of burning plastic or a strong smoky smell
- Inexplicable battery issues
Potential Causes of Electrical Problems in Your Car
A number of factors can cause electrical issues, and we're here to troubleshoot each one. A detailed inspection will first check for signs of technical or wire damage. If nothing is evident from a visual assessment, we move on to electrical diagnostics to test for things like circuit problems, voltage drops, and heating issues.
Some of the common causes of auto electrical issues are:
- Loose or failed spark plugs
- Worn-out battery cables
- Problems with the car battery
- Loose wiring
- A faulty ignition switch
- A blown-out fuse
- Slipping alternator belts
- Trouble with computer sensors
