Maserati is a quality engineered driving machine with a complex electrical system that requires routine scheduled maintenance if it is to function efficiently. Two integral parts are the Maserati Starters, alternators because they both require the best attention.
The starter of a car is that component of the electrical system responsible for igniting the engine. The starter processes the electrical charge from the battery which it converts to electrical energy needed to spin the flywheel. This activates the spark plugs which in turn ignite the fuel needed to jumpstart the engine. If the starter is faulty, it is most likely your engine will not even come on.
The alternator recharges the car battery to keep it running. It provides the battery with the needed electrical energy such that the battery has the power to keep the car running once the engine is already started. While the engine may start without the alternator, the absence of a charging system for the battery won’t have it running for long.
There are many giveaways of a faulty starter and alternator, although they usually start off with subtle signs. If your engine cranks weakly when you turn on the ignition, it is possible the starter is incapable of transferring the electrical power from the battery to start the car. The cranking noise is created from the failed spinning motion of the flywheel. An alternator failure on the other hand can be detected by several issues including premature battery failure due to a faulty battery charging system, inability of the engine to continue running once the battery is fully charged, dimming lights on the dashboard and sometimes like in the case of a starter failure, the engine will produce a grinding noise when the ignition is turned on. If you experience any of these signs, then you should have a mechanic look at your car.
If your car is showing signs of an electrical system failure, we will perform diagnostic tests to determine the specific component of the electrical system sending out the signs. Once we determine the cause of the problem, we can then proceed with the repair services. Before we make any repairs concerning the electrical system, however, we will first disconnect the battery from the system. For the most effective results, faulty alternators and starters will have to be replaced with new ones.
Conclusively, try to schedule regular maintenance for your Maserati Starters, Alternators and other parts so they can remain in top shape. Beyond ensuring that your car is in perfect condition, routine servicing will also help detect worn out and damaged components before they expose your vehicle to more harm.
