Top 3 Most Common Automotive Electrical Failures and How To Fix Them

With the changing of the seasons come automotive electrical system issues. This system can be easily impacted by increased heat, snow, ice, and/or rain. The following are the top 3 most common automotive electrical system failures as reported by the automotive industry.

  1. The Engine Won't Crank Properly - Through the ignition switch, the battery has to provide the spark through a spark plug that ignites the fuel in your engine. In this case, it could be a sign of a bad battery, alternator, or another unrelated electrical problem.

2. Battery Issues - One of the most common car electrical issues. The good news for this one is, it's not spot, and it is easy to fix.

3. Blown Fuses - The occasional single blown fuse can be easily replaced. If multiple fuses blow out repeatedly, their may be a deeper problem with your vehicle's electrical systems. An over-heated and melted fuse disrupts electricity flow. A blown fuse in some cases, it is a symptom of a bigger problem to the electrical systems. Diagnostic repairs are recommended in order to not cause bigger problems
