Starting/Charging System: Maintaining the Power Cycle

The starting and charging system is virtually transparent to the vehicle owner; with the exception of the common one- or two-second activation of the starter, the system is both silent and invisible – until there’s a malfunction.

Diagnosing a “no-start” situation requires attention to multiple factors beyond the battery, alternator and starter. In fact, many customers wrongly assume that a faulty starter or alternator is at fault when the actual cause is a circuit integrity issue such as corroded wiring and terminals and/or a failed voltage regulator, solenoid, relay or other part.

The key to a successful starting/charging system repair is identifying the root cause before investing time and money in a replacement component. And when a new part is needed, always look to a trusted supplier that offers fully guaranteed, OE quality products.

Modern starting/charging systems encompass dozens of components – and you can rely on Wells for virtually any replacement part required to restore the integrity of the system’s electrical circuit.
