You can't go wrong with Grayson's, on Ulverston Road in Woodseats.

 

0114 258 9225

 

After several years of trying to get an electrical fault in my car diagnosed and fixed, they managed it at their first attempt.

 

Fixed mine today - and less than a third of the price Ford dealers were quoting even to "investigate" the fault.

 

Top class service.

Basically, the battery is only there for starting the engine and acts as a load to stabilise the alternator output at around 12-13v. As soon as the engine is running, the charge light should extinguish and everything is then powered from the alternator, and as long as the charge light remains off then some of the current should be flowing into the battery. Assuming that the battery and alternator have been checked, then current might be draining slowly from the battery whilst the ignition is switched off, this is is something that a good auto electrician should find.

I had this problem once and it was because i had left an internal light on in the car. If you only drive in daylight then you wouldn't even notice it.

Thats right, I've left the radio on with vol. at minimum which doesnt help, but some components can develop a leak, or corrosion on plug blocks or even frayed cable somewhere on the wiring harness can cause this trouble. Some circuits do cause a constant drain on the battery such as digital clocks, alarms etc. but this drain current is usually very small.

Ditto, if I want to be ignored I would rather strike up a conversation about football with my wife.

Anybody know of a garage that specialises in auto electrics.

 

Need someone to take a look at my car as it really starting to **** me off!

 

Would like somewhere that I can drop the car off out hours as I work 9-5. Could possibly drop off at weekends too.

 

Cheers
