Auto Electrical Problem in car with flat battery or alternator or starter

5 Basic Auto Electrical Problems Explained

CAELEX Tech Tips

Auto Electrical problems are things that just about anyone can or has run into in their time as a car owner. A car’s wiring consists of a lot of wires and components, and usually if something goes wrong, we always tend to fear the worst.

We have however found that there are a few faults that should be checked first:

1. Battery

A Dead or faulty battery will most certainly be a problem for you, as
the car would not be able to start.

In most cases this can be fixed with a jump start, providing that the
battery is still in a good condition.

2. Battery Not Charging

If the battery does not hold the charge, it would mean that the battery
is faulty, and needs to be replaced.

3. Alternator Not Charging

If the alternator is failing to charge the battery, the electrical systems
on the car would start failing, indicating that you have a problem.

4. Faulty Starter

If the battery is fully charged, but the engine does not turn, it would
indicate to a faulty starter, which would then have to be repaired or
replaced.

5. Faulty Battery Cables

In some cases a very big voltage drop on the cables could also prevent
the vehicle from starting, or charging the battery. A voltage drop of
more than 0.2V would have to be checked
