Battery Replacement

One of the most common causes of starting trouble is a dead battery. Vehicle batteries tend to last for 3-5 years and do require replacement on occasion. However a battery may also die due to accessories being left on with the key in the on position, leaving the lights on or other issues such as a stuck relay. If the battery is drained due to one of these problems it can usually be recharged by completing a jump start.

Starter & Alternator Repair

Many times starting problems can be attributed to the starter motor or the alternator. If you turn the key and hear a series of clicks or a single loud clicking noise there is a good chance the starter has failed.
