Your vehicle's electrical system is made up of a complex network of circuits that create, store, and distribute energy where it is needed. To keep your car working properly, this system has to be maintained with routine service. Much of your electrical system maintenance can be done by our certified technicians at Chabill’s Tire & Auto Service at one of our many convenient locations throughout Louisiana. Cars aren’t like most other items you own that can be easily replaced if they stop working, like an electric toothbrush, toaster, or hairdryer. Electrical problems in your vehicle aren’t a good reason to toss it out! Instead, you’ll need to visit professional mechanics who can handle electrical system repairs.
What We Do
The electrical system in your car is headed by three main components: the battery, starter, and alternator. These are the parts we’ll check first during auto electrical diagnosis to ensure we pinpoint the correct issue in your vehicle. We don’t want to take guesses and force you to keep coming back until we get the issue resolved once and for all. We prefer to take our time to do the job right the first time. That’s one of the reasons why we’ve been a trusted auto electrical repair provider throughout Louisiana for over 50 years! Here’s a list of what we do to check your vehicle’s electrical system.
During a battery check, your Chabill’s technician will evaluate:
- Overall car battery and case condition
- Cable connections
- Hold-down hardware
Checking the starter includes:
- Checking cable connections
- Checking mounting bolts and brackets
- A Starter Electrical "Draw" Test to check the amount of electricity needed to turn the engine over
Checking the alternator includes:
- Conducting an overall visual inspection
- Checking the drive belt
- Checking the mounting brackets
- Testing electrical connections
