Problems we can help with – your battery

Electrical problem

Electrical problem

Electrical faults

To start your car, you need power. Your electrical system is used to start your car, manage engine management system and power lights and other in-car devices. If your electrical system fails, you won’t be able to drive. The most common problems are battery or a faulty alternator. Other problems include blown fuses, starter motor failure, ignition failure or bad spark plugs.

Diagnosing faults

When the car doesn’t start, there is a difference in a noise coming when different problems are incurred. If the car is “cranking”, it can be, amongst other things, fuel pump, spark plugs, bad ignition, or no fuel. If there is no noise at all, it can be a battery, a starter motor or neutral safety switch.

Fixing problems

You might be able to jump start the car if the problem is a battery or alternator. It might also be possible to bump start your car if it is a manual vehicle on a hill. However, this method is risking damaging your catalytic converter. You can also purchase faulty parts from your local motoring shop and fix it yourself, although in all electrical faults we recommend seeking professional help.
