The Car’s Electrical system

Beyond the car’s centre console, there are tons more electrical parts situated throughout the vehicle. Hidden under the bonnet is more electrical parts and components than you could likely imagine.

A car simply cannot run without its electronics functioning effectively.

Faults with the electrical system are fairy common, with particular issues more likely to occur in given situations. Such as battery issues in winter where the cold has set in, and spark plugs wearing out after high mileage is reached.


Car Battery

Our site has a whole separate page for car battery repairs and replacement where you can post a job that is related to your battery.

The typical life of a battery is around 3 to 5 years, therefore if you are experiencing problems at this time range you can assume the worst and get booked in with a local garage.


Symptoms of Car Electrical Faults

Akin to the rest of the car’s components, your electrical system can fail.

However, to avoid a disaster, there are certain signs you can look out for which indicate electrical faults. That way, you can take your car to a garage upon the appearance of a couple of these symptoms for a diagnosis and subsequent repair. This will save you money in the long run by keeping extensive damage at bay and not putting you at risk of a complete electrical failure whilst out driving.


Signs that your car’s electrical system is failing:

·        You are experiencing battery issues; temperamental behaviour

·        Headlights are dim

·        Fuses have blown out more than once in short space of time

·        Engine cranking slower than usual

·        There is a smell of burning plastic

·        The electronic components are not working e.g. the stereo or power windows


Electrical Fault Repair Costs

The cost of electrical fault repairs will vary massively as the category itself is so large. Whether your power windows are failing, or you need your stereo refitting these are vastly different jobs for a mechanic to carry out.

Although, the average cost on our site is relatively inexpensive sitting at around £58, with little difference between car makes and models.


How can I extend life of my car’s electrical components

Make sure to start your car up with all the major electrical parts (such as the stereo and air conditioning) switched off to ease the pressure on your starter motor and battery. Thus, awarding them a longer lifespan. You should also have your car’s electrical system checked over thoroughly every two years or so to anticipate or detect any issues.
