Fewer things can be more frustrating than trying to start your car to no avail. When you’re late for work or an important appointment, the last thing you need is for your vehicle to stubbornly refuse to turn over.
When this happens, it can be an issue with the alternator, battery, or starter. All these components tie into your vehicle’s electrical system. If your vehicle has trouble starting or frequently stalls out, we’ll evaluate each of the options and recommend replacement or repair.
A dead car battery can be a sign that the battery needs replacing. It also can be an early warning that your vehicle’s wiring system is malfunctioning, draining your battery when the car isn’t running. Dimming headlights, rough idling, and lurching while in motion are all signals your car sends when there’s a problem with its electrical wiring.
Our skilled technicians can inspect your car and explore the most likely reasons for the malfunctioning based on the symptoms.
Whether your vehicle has a distributor-based, distributor-less, or coil-on-plug ignition system, our technicians can diagnose and repair it when problems arise. Battery, coil ignition, and electronic ignition systems depend on a high current passing through a coil to start your car when you turn the key.
Several components within the ignition system play a role in getting the engine to turn over. If any one of those mechanisms fails, your car’s ignition system won’t work as intended. From bad ignition coils to failing distributor caps, we can identify the issue and recommend the appropriate repairs.
