When cars were first developed they were relatively simple machines. The electrical system consisted of a battery, a starter, and an alternator.
As automobile's electrical systems have become more advanced,
evolving to include computer-controls, sensors and other components, diagnosing
and repairing your vehicle has become much more complicated.
The electrical systems require professional care. While most people know that when a car's “check engine” light comes on they should call the mechanic, few car owners realize that they should have their car’s entire charging and starting system checked every two years. Malfunction or failure of any of the various electrical system components can hinder performance, reduce fuel efficiency, or even cause a car fire. The following is a partial list of your cars systems and parts that are part of the electrical system.
