Many malfunctions that occur in vehicles can be diagnosed as automotive electrical problems. The source of these problems is usually related to the electricity that is being generated by the battery or alternator. Each of these car problems can typically be separated into one of several categories.
Since the battery is the source of electricity for a vehicle, it is no suprise that it is a common cause for many automotive electrical problems. Usually the issue is a dead battery, caused when the battery can no longer hold a charge. Sometimes a faulty component of the vehicle can cause a dead battery, other times it can be a result of leaving a component like the headlights or stereo on for an extened period of time. This problem can usually be remedied easily with a jump start or a battery charge. A car battery can also become dammaged or simply too old and in need of replacement
Another source of a common auto electrical problem is the vehicles Alternator.
While the vehicle is running, the Alternator is recharging the battery. Once the Alternator breaks, the battery is quickly drained and the vehicle looses power. Sometimes the Alternator belt can wear out and become cracked leading to a similar malfunction where the battery easily becomes discharged.
