Auto Electrical Repair Services

When a vehicle won’t start, statistics show the culprit is probably due to electrical issues with your car. In fact, a failure of your vehicle’s auto electrical system accounts for about 50% of those stuck-in-the-driveway moments. 

Here at K&W, we’re well experienced in auto electrical services (like servicing starters and batteries). But to make sure you don’t need to call a tow truck to get your vehicle into one of our stores, it’s important to know how to spot electrical issues with your car.

What Is My Vehicle’s Electrical System Comprised Of?

Your vehicle’s electrical system is made up of your battery, starter, and alternator. If any one of these components begins malfunctioning, it will eventually, if left to persist, cause major issues in your vehicle.

Signs Your Vehicle Requires Auto Electrical Services

Rarely will your vehicle’s battery or starter completely fail. That is, at least not without giving you some signs first. You may be in need of an auto electrical repair if you’re experiencing any of the following:

  • Difficulty starting your vehicle
  • Dim headlights and taillights
  • Unreliable power windows and slow seat adjustments
  • A burning plastic smell

What Happens If I Neglect Auto Electrical Repair?

The above list is comprised of indications that your vehicle’s electrical system is weakening. Continued neglected maintenance of your car’s electrical system will eventually mean a complete breakdown while driving or failure to start.

How Often Should I Get My Battery Changed?

You should have your vehicle’s battery replaced about every three years. For the most accurate information, check your vehicle manufacturer’s guide to see what’s recommended.

How Often Should I Get My Battery Changed?

On average, a starter lasts for 100,000-150,000 miles. In many cases, the starter can last for the lifetime of the vehicle. However, it can fail prematurely. Whenever you drop your vehicle off for a battery replacement, we recommend having your entire vehicle’s electrical system serviced.
