The electrical system is essential to the functioning of your car or truck. If your car or truck will not start, or if it starts but spontaneously stalls, the problem likely lies in the electrical system. At Whip’s Automotive, we troubleshoot, diagnose, and repair all electrical problems.
Contact Whip's Automotive today, serving Edgewater, MD, Davidsonville, MD, Harwood, MD, and surrounding areas.
The electrical system in your vehicle consists of three main parts: the battery, the starter, and the alternator.
When you turn the key, the battery sends an electrical current to the starter. The starter then starts the engine moving. Then, while the vehicle is running, the alternator keeps the battery charged. If any of these three components fails, the cycle breaks and your car or truck won’t work.
To prevent your car from stalling, or failing to start, ask us about our electrical system check service. We’ll determine whether your battery and other parts are in good shape, or whether one or more of them is nearing the end of its life. We’ll also determine whether your alternator is generating the correct amount of current and voltage.
If we find any problems, we will repair or replace the part, before a real problem arises. We are an Interstate Batteries dealer. We sell only the best.
In the case of an OBD test, there are three main reasons for failure:
1) The OBD system reported an emissions-related malfunction, as indicated by stored diagnostic trouble codes and illumination of the Malfunction Indicator Lamp (“MIL”),(also referred to as the “check engine” light) on the dashboard;
Today’s modern fuel-injected and computer-controlled vehicles present unique challenges. Emissions failures generally require a high degree of expertise and training to diagnose and repair. It is also important to remember that repairs must be made by a recognized repair technician to qualify towards a waiver. In Maryland, a repair of $450 or more qualifies as a waiver.
Our expert mechanics can solve these and all other electrical problems. Call (410) 798-4668 today to keep your vehicle running smoothly.
