Silvhorn Automotive technicians are automotive electrical specialists. From alternators to headlights we have got your vehicle covered.
Located on the back of the engine or the front of the transmission, the starter cranks the engine when the ignition switch is turned on.
We recommend having your starter tested to make sure it is drawing the correct amount of current every spring.
The alternator is your car’s electrical charger. Its various parts are contained in an aluminium housing and generate direct current for recharging your vehicle’s battery. Your vehicle’s alternator also helps power the other electrical loads of your car.
We recommend having your alternator’s drive belt checked at every oil change. A loose alternator belt can reduce alternator output and run down your battery.
Have your car’s entire charging system checked yearly. If you see signs of a poor alternator, poor light operation, a dead battery, frequent bulb replacement and dashboard warning lights you may be having problems with your vehicle’s alternator. Your Silvhorn Automotive technician can install a new alternator if necessary.
The battery is the backbone of your vehicle’s electrical system as it supplies power to the starter and ignition system. Your vehicle’s battery also delivers the extra power needed when the electrical load exceeds the alternator’s supply.
You should have your battery and its connections checked at every oil change. If your battery is more than three years old, it’s a good idea to think about replacing it. Silvhorn Automotive carries a variety of quality name-brand batteries.
