Charging System Check

When your engine is running, your vehicle’s charging system converts mechanical energy into electrical energy.  This energy is needed to operate the loads in the vehicle’s electrical system. When the charging system’s output is greater than what is needed by the vehicle, it sends current into the battery to maintain the proper charge.

When the engine is running, battery power energizes the charging system and engine power drives it. The charging system then generates electricity for the vehicle’s electrical systems. At low speeds some battery current may be needed to operate lights and window defogger, etc., but at higher speeds the charging system supplies all the current needed by the vehicle.

Our Master Certified Technicians thoroughly understand the charging system and our Charging System Checkup includes:

  • Condition of Battery
  • Condition of Starter
