Your Car’s Electrical System

What is the car’s electrical system and how does it work?

Your cars electrical system is made up of two parts – the starting system and the charging system.

The Starting System

The starting system is what starts your engine when you turn the key. Your car’s starting system is made up of the motor, starter relay, ignition switch, solenoid starter and starter relay.

Being able to correctly diagnose where the problem is within this multi-faceted and complicated system can save you time and money. At AAMCO Utah we have the years of expertise to diagnose your car’s problem right the first time.

The Charging System

Your car’s charging system is what charges your battery and keeps it from going dead. A broken charging system can cause serious problems to today’s increasing complicated car electrical systems as they now have many sophisticated and sensitive electronic components. The technicians at AAMCO Utah have the best electrical service equipment around. We will quickly identify your problem and get your charging system fixed to prevent further damage to your cars electrical equipment.
