Specialized Knowledge of German Vehicles

German vehicles often feature advanced safety systems such as adaptive cruise control, lane assist, and collision avoidance systems, all of which rely heavily on electrical components. Other features such as power locks and windows, infotainment systems, and internal and external lights also depend on the power from the electrical system.

On top of all of that, the brain of your car is the ECU or electronic control unit. This unit helps control everything from sensors and the transmission to the engine. That means that when your car is having electrical issues, it could easily affect the engine itself. When your vehicle is having symptoms of electrical trouble, we’ll look at:

  • Battery Test and Replacement
  • Lighting
  • Safety Restraint System Testing and Diagnosis
  • Accessories
  • Windshield Wipers and Washers
  • Alternator
  • Starter

Common Electrical Issues

Electrical issues in German vehicles can range from minor nuisances to major safety concerns, so it is important to know what to look out for. Some of the electrical problems you might encounter in your car include:

  • Dead battery: This is one of the most common electrical issues faced by drivers, and thankfully, also one of the most easily fixed. If your battery is dead, you may experience trouble starting your car, dim headlights, or electrical accessories not working right.
  • Bad alternator: The alternator recharges the battery, so if your battery keeps dying, it may be the alternator’s fault.
  • Blown fuses: Fuses protect the electrical circuits in your car from being overloaded, but in doing so, they sometimes take damage themselves. It may be a blown fuse if you notice particular electrical elements not working, like power windows, locks, or interior lights.
  • Malfunctioning starter motor: The starter motor turns the engine over, so when it goes, you’ll start noticing difficulty getting your car to start. You might notice clicking noises when turning the ignition key or even no response when trying to start the vehicle.
  • Faulty Sensors: Modern vehicles have many sensors to keep everything running smoothly. A faulty sensor might trigger a warning light on the dashboard and even affect engine performance.
