You get into your vehicle in the morning to find it won't start - you immediately become stressed out, especially because you have somewhere to be. You wonder, is it my car battery? Did I leave a light on over night inside of my vehicle? Luckily, there is way that you can have your vehicle's battery tested to determine the correct cause of the car starting issue.
Aside from a dead battery, a faulty alternator can also cause issues with keeping your car started and running. The enitre starting and charnging system works together to start your vehicle, so any wires, circuits, fuses, or parts within this system can also cause start up problems.
If you prefer to do it the easy way, you can just get your vehicle brought into Dave's Automotive where we can test your vehicle's battery and alternator and figure out the issue first hand. You can also remove your car battery and bring into our shop for testing as well.
If you wish to test your battery yourself, you will need either a Voltmeter or Power Probe to do so. If you want to purchase one, you can usually find either of these at your local auto parts store or online. However, it is typically cheaper to have your battery tested for free at the shop and it can be more accurate.
For all of your battery needs, give us a call here at Dave's Automotive today!
