Common Truck Electrical System Issues
Faulty Alternator Replacements
Alternators are designed to charge your battery using the power of your engine. This makes your alternator the prime suspect if your battery dies. At B&B Truck & Trailer Repairs, we have the equipment to diagnose what’s causing the issue and have it repaired as soon as possible. Malfunctioning alternators are not typically repairable, meaning we’ll have to replace them entirely. Wondering why your alternator failed? Besides normal wear and tear, premature failure may happen if you use electronic winches or other equipment while your engine is running.
Starter Motor Service
Your starter motor is designed to turn over your crankshaft in an effort to get your truck started. If this component fails, your motor won’t turn over, and it will fail to start. Similarly to your alternator, your water pump is a component that is more often replaced than repaired. Fortunately, we here at B&B Truck & Trailer Repair have a large inventory of parts to pull from.
Glow Plug Failure
Glow plugs are designed to encourage combustion rather than play a direct role, but they’re still critical components. If they fail, the incoming air and fuel won’t be heated, and combustion will likely be a lot more difficult. Come on down to B&B Truck & Trailer Repair today, and we’ll have your old glow plugs switched out with a new set in a matter of moments!
