Do I Need Starter and Alternator Replacement?
When you turn the key in your car's ignition, are you hearing a click sound? Does the engine act like it barely wants to turn over and struggles to start? If so, the problem is likely your starter and alternator. In some instances, the problem is as simple as the battery and the wiring associated with the battery. The good news is that this is a very common problem, and it's very easy to figure out. If you are not sure why your car won't start, we can find the problem in a matter of moments, assuming that the issue is with your starter, alternator, or battery.
The diagnostic steps to figure out why your car is having trouble starting are pretty straight-forward. One thing that you are going to need to test your alternator and battery is a basic multi-meter. This is a tool that can read DC volts and amps, and you can pick one up for about $30 or less.
Diagnosing the Problem
When your car is running, the alternator is charging your battery. When the car is off, your battery powers the starter in order to get your car started again. You will need to do a process of elimination on these three things, and you should start with your starter. You'll try to start your vehicle, and if the starter cranks, you know it is working, and you can eliminate that problem. If your starter is bad, you are probably just going to hear a single click or nothing at all.
Even if you are getting a signal that your starter might be bad, you should still check your alternator and your battery to be sure. Before you get started, check your terminals to make sure that they are nice and tight. If they are loose, that will throw in a bunch of other symptoms that can be very confusing.
Next, you will want to address the alternator. To do this, you will need to have the car running, which may require a jump. If your car starts up quickly, then you know it's not the starter that's your problem. Now, you will just need to determine whether it's your alternator or your battery that's your issue.
Of course, you can just bring your vehicle to Aycock Frame & Body Shop, and we can do it for you. Visit us or give us a call for fast starter and alternator replacement in Greensboro.Starter And Alternator Replacement Greensboro Nc
