Auto-Spec offers the complete service and repair of charging systems in both foreign and domestic cars and trucks.  We would like to help our customers have a better understanding of the car battery, starting and charging systems play crucial parts in making certain the operation of your auto is dependable while driving in central Texas. The car battery’s purpose is to store electricity that is then converted into the mechanic force necessary to start the engine by the starter. The alternator in your auto produces the electrical current – originating from the car battery – that is required for the auto’s electrical needs when running the engine. The ignition module in the auto turns the low voltage supply to the ignition coil off and on, which then is converted to the higher voltage required for the operation of the auto’s ignition system. The electricity is used to engage the spark plugs that ignite the combined fuel/air mixture in the auto’s engine’s cylinders. This ignition is finally used to power the pistons to initiate the rest of the process of powering your auto.


There are various considerations that contribute to the wear and tear of a car battery, starting, and charging systems. For example the frequent turning on and off of your car while driving will cause more wear and tear than your daily commute. Other factors affecting the wear and tear of the car battery, starting, and charging systems include the driving and weather conditions in Texas, overall mileage, an auto’s age, and various automotive parts like in-vehicle entertainment systems causing an excessive draw on the electrical system.

The signs you may realize that indicate possible problems with your car battery, charging, and starting system include dimming headlights and interior lights, the “check engine” and/or battery lights, or failure of other car or truck accessories.
