Alternator Problems

A fault with your alternator can prevent your battery from charging or cause the battery to over charge. Sometimes this can lead to unnecessary battery replacement without checking the charging system and fixing the cause of the problem. Occasionally the issue is a minor component such as a fan belt needs replacing or tightening.

If a problem is diagnosed, the qualified auto electricians at Snow Bros will give you the best advice. Such as whether your alternator should be repaired or if it needs to be replaced. This may also depend on the type of alternator and the type of vehicle.

Starter Motor Issues

Often if you are having trouble starting your vehicle at times, a faulty starter motor may be causing the problem. Faulty starters often mimic the effects of a flat battery as the engine may turn over slowly, or not at all. The battery terminals and battery leads may even produce smoke or get extremely hot as the faulty starter motor draws a lot of power from the battery.

When a starter motor problem has been diagnosed correctly, the team at Snow Bros will advise you on the best options. For example, if your one has a common fault it may be better to replace it with a new aftermarket starter motor. However, if your starter motor is known for reliability, it may be a better option to rebuild it.
