The term of auto electrical repairs refers to the whole range of restorative and maintenance procedures carried out on a vehicle's electrical system. This is the system that is responsible for among other things, the car's lighting system, the car's automatic starting, the car's audio systems and so much more. As long as the specific parts or systems causing problems can be easily identified, such electrical repairs tend to be quite easy. The real headache however occurs when the faulty parts or systems can't be easily identified; so that the whole process has to be carried out by 'trial and error.'
"Heat kills car batteries," according to John Banta, a Consumer Reports project leader and part of the team that tests batteries for the magazine. "Many times in cold climates, your battery fails to start your car on a below-freezing day. The reason this happens is that the heat of the past summers has weakened your battery. When you use it in the cold, the starter requires more electrical current to turn over the cold engine with its thickened oil." Leaving your car parked or stored for long periods of time can also lead to a dead battery that you will need to recharge before heading out for a drive.
