When you pop the hood and look at the complicated mechanical devices called engines, you notice right away there's plenty of wiring. In fact, the wires seem to snake around the engine in a complex configuration that makes little sense to anyone who is not a mechanic. Auto engines have plenty of electrical configurations that are critical to their smooth operation. The fact is that when a car experiences problems, it could easily be an electrical problem as much as it could be a mechanical problem. Any qualified mechanic needs to be familiar with both mechanical and electrical problems in order to be efficient at his or her job. That means a mobile car mechanic must be prepared to complete a variety of repairs including those related to the electrical systems.
You can also perform the test yourself if you have access to a Battery Load Tester, a device which is made for the purpose. The load tester works by placing a specific amount of electrical load on the battery for a specific amount of time while monitoring the available battery voltage. The battery should be fully charged before the test in order to insure accurate test results.
