What is the Electrical System?

Your vehicle’s automobile electrical system has two components: a starting system and a charging system. The starting system is responsible for starting your engine when you turn the key.
The starting system is comprised of a starter motor, starter solenoid, starter relay, neutral safety switch, and an ignition switch. Correctly diagnosing where a problem lies with the starting system can save you time and money. The technicians at your local Colorado AAMCO locations have the expertise to identify and fix the problem with your starting system the right way, the first time.

The charging system is what keeps your battery from going dead. Today’s vehicles have increasingly sophisticated electronic devices and systems, which make your charging system more important than ever. A poor or broken charging system and electrical car problems can cause serious damage to highly sensitive electrical components, resulting in expensive repairs. We guarantee our services with the Best Nationwide Warranty. Learn more now.

Our Colorado AAMCO stores have the best electrical service equipment and expert technicians around. They will identify and fix the problem with your charging system the first time and prevent further damage to your sensitive electronic components and devices.
