Battery & Electrical


The battery of your vehicles allows all electrical systems to operate – power doors and windows, lights, dashboard, audio equipment and more. Electric vehicles often have more than one battery.

A dead battery or one that cannot hold a charge properly will leave you with a car that won’t start.

Signs of a low battery may be dimmed headlights or difficulty starting the engine. If you experience any of these, bring your vehicle in sooner rather than later, so you don’t get stuck with a vehicle that doesn’t start. We want to help you avoid that costly and stressful day.

The starter is a motor that cranks the engine. Problems starting your vehicle may be due to a problem with the starter, which may need to be replaced. 

A diagnostic is required to determine if the starter or the battery is at fault. Bringing your vehicle in for scheduled maintenance according to your owner’s manual or at the first sign of a problem is very important because the starting and charging system of your vehicle is imperative to be able to drive your car. 

We can thoroughly and carefully examine your vehicle to see what the cause of the problem is and find the best solution to get you on the road, without the unnecessary expenses.

Electrical Diagnosis

Because the electrical systems in a vehicle are made up of parts that all work together, a diagnostic service will likely be needed to determine which part of the system is disrupting the operation of your vehicle. This includes issues with the vehicle’s headlights, interior lights, hazard lights, turning signal, power doors and windows, and dashboard warning lights. 

It is important to heed dashboard warning lights and bring your car in to determine what the issue is because it may be something urgent that can impair the operation and safety of driving your vehicle.

If a dashboard warning light is flashing, your vehicle needs to be brought in immediately.

Our team can expertly diagnose and fix any of these functions that aren’t working right. Give us a call so that we can get your driving back to normal as soon as possible!

Alternators are what allows your car to charge the battery when the engine is running. This requires a functioning cooling fan because of the heat produced. This part is necessary for a vehicle to operate, because the battery alone cannot run the vehicle. You may have a dashboard warning light signaling that the alternator needs to be looked at. 

We know how stressful it is discovering you have a dead battery when you need to be somewhere. This is an important part of your vehicle, so bring it into Maidens Family Auto Care so our skilled team can take a look, and keep you on the road.
