Signs of Failing Electrical Components
Due to the complexity of electrical systems, there are many problem variations to consider, but some typical symptoms of failed electrical components include:
· Blown fuse - fuses can occasionally blow, but if it happens frequently, it means the electrical system is delivering too much current elsewhere.
· Dim lighting (headlights, taillights, interior lights) - dimming lights indicate charging malfunctions and low system voltage.
· Burning plastic odor - this may be a sign of an electrical system that is short-circuiting and melting wiring harnesses. This needs to be fixed right away since it could start a fire.
· Systems like the horn, radio, power windows, and power locks not working – this could be a sign of malfunctioning electrical systems.
· Engine won’t crank properly - electricity is required to start the engine. The battery must supply the spark through a spark plug through the ignition switch in order to ignite the fuel in your engine. Your battery, alternator, or another unrelated electrical issue may be to blame if your engine won't start properly.
· Experiencing problems with your battery – if you get your battery checked and it still has plenty of voltage, a problem with your electrical system could be to blame.
