Charging System Inspection & Testing

Volkswagen Charging System Service in Wayne County, Michigan

The charging system in your car, truck or SUV is a very important part of your entire operating system. It is comprised of the alternator, the voltage regulator, your charging system gauge and your wiring to all the components in the charging system. Each and every part must be working correctly so your car can be powered electrically and operate. The purpose of the charging system is to supply your vehicle with enough electricity to start your engine and then to store extra electricity in your battery that is replenished by the alternator.

Certified Charging System Inspection & Testing

If you have a faulty alternator, regulator or wiring in your vehicle, then the battery won’t be storing the extra electricity that is generated by the alternator. So, when you turn off the ignition and try to restart your vehicle, it may not have enough electricity in the battery to allow your vehicle to start at all.

This can lead to a dead battery and you can be stuck on the side of the road needing to call a tow truck. A failing alternator will also eventually make your battery weak and then die.

What Happens if I wait to have my Charging System Inspected?

Fortunately, you may notice some warning signs that your charging system is failing before it actually does so. If your alternator is starting to fail, you will notice insufficient charging output. This is signified by dimming headlights and a slow starting engine as well as all the electrical components moving slowly, such as your power windows opening and closing slowly.

You may have too much voltage is the voltage regulator is failing. In this case, you will see bulbs and other electrical components starting to blow out. You may also hear a strange grinding noise coming from the alternator when the bearings are beginning to fail. Any of these items can leave you on the side of the road and unable to move your vehicle.
