Electrical System Diagnosis & Repair

Electrical System Diagnosis & Repair | Santa Rosa Transmission and Car Care

When the automotive industry was in its infancy, it used electricity only to ignite the inside of an engine. By the late 1920s, the electric starter replaced the hand crank, electric headlights made acetylene lamps obsolete and the braying of the electric horn drowned out the squeak of the hand-squeezed air horn. Today, an automobile requires an elaborate electrical configuration of circuits just to produce, store and distribute all the electricity it needs just for everyday operation.

There are dozens of different sensors throughout the vehicle. Today’s vehicles have multiple computers, sometimes as many as eight to 12; most have at least three internal computers. When these sensors become faulty, it can result in concerns about the car’s driveability. Since today’s vehicles are computer-controlled, we have the latest technology in scanners and software to communicate with your vehicle’s computer.
