The engine is a vehicle’s heart, no discussion about that. This means that drivers usually have the habit of having it checked every once in a while, in order to avoid serious issues.

Even if a vehicle’s mechanical part really is fundamental for it to function properly, many people forget about another substantially important part: the general car electrical maintenance, that has gained importance with all the changes car industry has promoted.

General car electrical: why is it so important?

Electronics has evolved in a very impressive way in the last few years. Thanks to that, we can count on better portable devices, such as smartphones and smartwatches.

But they weren’t the only ones benefitted by this evolution: thanks to this, vehicles have gone through plenty of changes – for the better. Apart from the starting systems, more and more components are wired to the electric systems, the most famous ones being electronic fuel injection and electric car windows.

That being said, having a good general car electrical maintenance is fundamental for the vehicle to be working perfectly. It should be checked at least once a year, or whenever it shows signs of trouble.


General car electrical: what are the signs of trouble

Unlike the engines or brakes, a car electrical system’s problems don’t show up in a very explicit way. This means that the driver should always look out for symptoms such as:

– Trouble starting the car;
– Dim lights;
– Frequent battery troubles;
– Frequent fuse blows;
– Burned plastic smells;
– Visual battery leaks.

If any of this happens to your vehicle, you should have it gone through a general car electrical check immediately. If the issue goes unchecked, you might get an unpleasant surprise (such as a car that doesn’t work altogether) or even an extreme situation, such a fire, when you least expect it – yes, it might happen at the middle of the road.

How to do general car electrical maintenance?

General car electrical maintenance shouldn’t be done at home, neither by amateurs. The reason is that not only does it require full knowledge of how an electrical system is structured, but also because it requires very specific tools.
