Starting and Charging Systems
To say that batteries, starters, and alternators are important engine components would be an understatement. In fact, without them, it would be impossible to maintain the electrical system in your vehicle, and it wouldn’t be able to function at all. Keeping your starting and charging system in top shape is critical to ensuring the reliability of the vehicle you drive every day, so you don’t find yourself inconvenienced by a vehicle that won’t start.
What’s more, the starting and charging system of any vehicle is responsible for ensuring that secondary systems like air conditioning, the stereo, and computer monitor all work as they should. It only takes one bad link in the electrical chain for all related components to cease operation. To avoid this, the professionals at Thompson Automotive can perform a comprehensive evaluation of your entire electrical system — including the starting and charging hardware — to make sure that you aren’t at risk of an untimely breakdown due to things like a bad battery, alternator, or wiring.
