The battery is the lifeblood of your vehicle. It is responsible for starting your car and running many of the accessories on the vehicle. The battery must endure temperature extremes and still be able to perform. The natural venting of fumes from the battery will cause corrosion on the battery terminals. This must be periodically cleaned. The alternator is responsible for operating all the electrical accessories while the engine is running. Everything from the turn signals to the engine computer to the fuel pump is powered by the battery and alternator. The alternator also recharges the battery after it is used to start the engine. Electrical system problems can be slight or major. At Pro Care Tire and Service we sell hi performance Interstate batteries and offer electrical system repairs and alternator replacement using quality parts.
