If your vehicle is starting to show some of the warning signs below, it is probably in need of some form of auto electrical repair. Your car may have a problem that is commonly associated with starters or alternators. Ignoring the problem will lead to car trouble ranging from "slow" start to a car that refuses to start at all.

  1. Warning Lights – Don't ignore the warning lights on the dashboard. These lights are alerting you that something is not working properly and needs immediate attention.
  2. Sound – If your engine is starting to make strange sounds you've never heard before, have it checked as soon as possible.
  3. Smell – Over-heating electrical connections will create a burning smell, a symptom of a serious electrical circuit or fuse malfunction.
  4. Dim Lights – If your car's exterior and interior lights dim periodically, it usually signifies an electrical issue. Alternators that aren't working properly won't keep a battery charged to run the lighting system.
  5. Dead Battery - A dead battery is especially common in the freezing winter months when lights are on for extended periods of time. Now that spring is here, have your battery checked. Of course, lights left on without the car running may also result in a dead battery. A jump-start should take care of the immediate problem, but then don't forget to have the car battery inspected to see if it needs to be replaced. A strong battery can prevent future repairs to starters and alternators.
  6. Broken or Loose Electrical Connections - A single little wire or connection that is broken can lead to a series of electrical malfunctions in your car. A simple auto electrical repair, such as reconnecting an on-line fuse or connection can bring life back to your car. Don't delay in having an auto electrical repair if you find something not working properly.
