Electricity plays an important part of all modern vehicles. The battery, for example, doesn’t just enable you to start your car or van, it’s also used to provide power to various ancillary components.

Just like with your home, your vehicle’s electrical wiring and components need to be in good working order so that everything operates safely and as expected. Sometimes, automotive electrical problems can prove to be a real challenge to diagnose for many vehicle owners. That’s especially true given the complex nature of electrical systems such as the ECU, traction control, and ABS.
