Electrical System Service

Your vehicle's electrical system is complex, but we can help you diagnose any electrical issue. The battery is where it all starts. Before you can turn the ignition switch on and expect your car to start it must be in porpoer working condition (fully charged). Other components come into play such as neutral safety switches, relays, fuses, fusable links, etc...If you are experiencing elecrical troubles stop by and see us. It doesn't matter if it's your power window regulators, accessory switches, fog lights, or horn. We can diagnose and quote the needed repairs. Just call us at 865-463-2233 to schedule an appointment.

Reasons to check your electrical system

Battery

Batteries usually last between three and seven years, so itís a smart idea to replace yours every four years as a safety measure. Until your vehicle starts, your battery is providing the car's entire electrical current. This includes the current to the ignition and fuel systems, which are required for your engine to function.

Starter

While the battery supplies the power to start your vehicle, the starter is really what gets the engine going. The battery supplies a small amount of power to the starter motor. The starter then rotates the flywheel, which turns the crankshaft and begins the movement of the engine's pistons. That is why it is important to make sure the starter works.

It's difficult to determine when a starter will fail exactly, but an electrical system check at AutoCade can help recognize the warning signs. We check if the starter is drawing the proper amount of current. An excessive current draw will indicate a worn starter, while a low current draw points to corroded cables or connections. Not to worry, we can fix all your electrical system problems.

Alternator

When your engine is running, the alternator keeps the battery charged and the electrical system going. Your car can start with a faulty alternator, but it won't be able to run for an extended period of time. If the alternator requires replacement, your vehicle's electrical system will perform erratically, its battery will discharge, and eventually your engine will lose power. A complete electrical system check from AutoCade will tell you whether the alternator is generating the proper amount of current and voltage. That way, you have a heads up before your alternator fails.
