Battery Diagnostic Service
Your car battery is meant to store electrical energy and the starter then converts that energy into mechanical force to turn the engine. The alternator produces and replaces electric current the starter used from the battery during start-up. The alternator also manages replacing electrical loads used while the engine is running. Certain driving habits, such as frequently turning on and off your engine, cause more wear on the starter than a simple trip back and forth to work. Other factors include, but are not limited to:
- Vehicle Age
- Extreme weather conditions (hot and cold)
- Amount of electricity used by entertainment systems
