Q: Q: Electrical problems in car

asked by on

My car is having electrical problems.

Many electrical problems can be caused by a dead battery. If you are experiencing strange electrical problems, I would have your battery and alternator tested. I recommend having a technician from YourMechanic come out and load test the battery and test the alternator for proper operation. They can also pull codes on the computer to determine what is causing your electric problems.
