Every vehicle is built with an intuitive electrical system that helps get the car started and keeps it powered.

Our shop in Redmond, Washington, is staffed with some of the best auto electricians in the area, all of whom are capable of providing the high-quality auto electrical repair services you need. Whether you need the alternator inspected or the battery replaced, we're able to fix any problem the electrical system experiences and keep your car and all its functions powered.

What Makes Up Your Car's Electrical System?

Although it's understandable to think that your vehicle's electrical system is made up of dozens of parts, the truth is that the system is made up of three major components. If one of these components experiences wear or start to fail, the entire system would falter, and the other two components would begin to suffer. At our facility, we believe one of the best ways to protect the electrical system is to know what each component does. Here's what you need to know:

Battery: provides the entire electrical current within your vehicle until it starts. The battery is the reason why your car can start.

Alternator: helps keep the battery charged and the entire system going once the vehicle has started. Although you can start your vehicle with a failing alternator, your car won't be able to stay running for long.

Starter: works with the battery to help "start" your vehicle. A small amount of energy is transferred from the battery into the starter. From there, the starter can help the pistons within the engine start moving through a reaction from the flywheel and crankshaft.
