Car Electrical & Repair in Austin, TX
The electrical system and wiring in a car carry electricity throughout the vehicle. Modern cars have miles of wiring, dozens of switches, modules, electrical motors and actuators.
Most all of the sensors, accessories and power equipment run by electricity. When a short or ground problem is encountered, a technician must manually trace the system using wiring schematics and special equipment. It is a time consuming task, even for the best technicians.
Many computer problems on cars can be traced back to bad connections and faulty grounds.
There is no preventative maintenance needed for the electrical system, but it is important to keep the battery and connections in good shape.
A battery and charging system test at each oil change can flag the car owner to potential problems.
