Extreme Heat & Your Auto’s Electrical System

There are three major areas of your vehicle to be aware of during the summer’s extreme heat. Frank shares tips with ABC15’s Kaley O’Kelley.

Batteries can be bloated and have issues with acid on battery terminal which causes corrosion and can create a dangerous situation leaving you stranded.

Alternator is responsible for maintaining a constant charge to the battery. There are specific noises you can hear when it is starting to fail, plus a look at worn plastic connectors.

Starter is a part we take for granted that this is always going to work. How can you tell if this part is about to fail? Again, specific noises when starting will occur and Frank demonstrates what happens when engine oil leaks on to the starter causing failure to occur.
