The average lifespan of a car battery is between three to five years, but this can vary based on a number of factors including how often and how long the car is driven, temperature variation, the age of your car, and any additional electronic features installed (including alarms and sensors) that are active even when your car is not in use.

However, it can be easy to misdiagnose electrical problems with your vehicle. A few common signs that your car is having electrical problems are:

  • The Engine won’t start or you suspect another issue with the starting system For example, when trying to start the engine, either you hear nothing or you hear a series of clicks coming from the starter solenoid or relay.
  • You’re Experiencing Battery Problems
  • Headlights and Other Lights Are Not Working Properly
  • Your Fuses Keep Blowing Out
  • You Smell Burning Plastic Or Electrical Insulation

If you are experiencing any of the above problems and you smell burning plastic or electrical insulation, you should stop driving your car immediately. This is a sure sign of an electrical malfunction or a short circuit, especially if it occurs alongside dimmed lights, blown fuses, and issues starting your car. Avoid driving, because you could further damage your vehicle. If you act quickly, you can avoid expensive repairs like alternator replacements, or electrical rewiring.

SRS System / Air bag

The Supplemental Restraint System, or SRS, is the system in your car that controls the automatic seatbelt restraints and the airbags. Your vehicle’s SRS is considered a passive restraint system that automatically detects things such as braking, deceleration, impact location, and if there’s a passenger in the front seat. It then sends the information to the Airbag Control Unit, which figures out which seatbelts to tighten and which airbags to activate. Since your SRS is an intricate part of your vehicle’s safety system, it is always best if you have a certified and experienced mechanic diagnose and correct the issue. If the SRS/airbag light illuminates ON the dashboard, you should call us to help diagnose and correct the issue.
