Your car's starting and charging
systems and the battery help ensure dependable vehicle operation whenever you drive your car and in all sorts of driving
conditions. Make sure to have your Meineke professional check these systems regularly.
Your car battery stores electrical
energy and the starter converts that energy into mechanical force to turn the engine for starting. The alternator produces
electric current to replace what the starter used from the battery during start-up and to support electrical loads when the
engine is running.
Driving habits such as frequent engine on/off cycles will cause more wear on the starter than a simple trip back and forth to work. Other factors include:
- Driving in extreme weather conditions (hot and cold)
- Vehicle Age
- Extensive electrical draws like in-vehicle entertainment systems
For safe operation of your vehicle, keep your electrical system fully charged. Your Meineke mechanic can check your system to maintain peak operation of your vehicle.
