When you hear “electrical issues” or “charging problem” is your battery the first thing that comes to mind?
While your battery is an incredibly important component of keeping your Mazda on the road running safely, it is not the only part of your Charging System. The typical Charging System is made up of the alternator, battery, an electronic control unit (ECU) and wiring to keep everything connected.
The alternator’s job is to create the electrical power needed to power your Mazda’s accessories (Bluetooth, radio, etc) while also recharging the battery as the vehicle is turned on and running. The ECU controls the alternators power output and senses when the battery requires charging or when the amount of electricity that is needed changes. Lastly, the battery is the hub for all electric power that runs through your Mazda. It creates the energy that allows the engine to crank and continues to power the accessories after you’ve turned your Mazda off.
With everything that the Charging System in your Mazda controls, it can be a little daunting to see the little battery indicator light appear on your dashboard. Age can be a factor in the wearing down of your Charging System, just as our temperamental Southern California weather. Extreme weather changes can have a negative impact, as well as leaving accessories or lights on while your Mazda is not running. We always recommend checking your owners manual for recommended maintenance intervals, or you can always ask one of our friendly, professional Service Advisors if you have any questions.
