Quirky Problems Require Expert Repairs. There were 266,539 new vehicles sold in Victoria in 2008. There are over 3,921,574 cars on the road in Victoria. If you could talk to the various car owners who have experienced engine problems, odds are you would find the quirky problems are related to electrical issues. Fortunately the right diagnostic equipment can make it much easier to pinpoint the problem quickly.
If the battery warning light (a light in the shape of a battery symbol) on the dashboard comes on while you're driving, that means the charging system isn't working, but the fault may lie in something other than the battery. The cause of the battery light could be a loose or corroded battery cable or other wire connecting components of the charging system, or it might be a problem with the alternator or voltage regulator. The alternator generates the power that is stored in the battery. If the alternator fails, or the accessory belt that drives the alternator is loose or broken, then you'll end up with a dead battery because the bad alternator isn't recharging the battery.
