La care soferul multumeste, porneste masina si pleaca.

ma intereseaza "wire" aici ce e? (eu n-am masina si nici idee ce ar putea fi) Thanks.

Today, a car uses an extensive electrical system just to produce, store, and distribute all the electricity it requires to allow it to run smoothly and offer the driver the comfort he now expects.
Car starts but my headlights are dim at low engine speeds.

Check for ***loose wires ****going to the alternator. Also check for corrosion, as this will inhibit the alternator from charging properly.

Look to the alternator for problems. Take the car to your mechanic to have the alternator checked for proper operation.

The ability to get a modern car going again is absolutely gone. I always stopped and helped people with car problems in the old days. Six times out of 10, it\'d be a ***loose wire*** or something simple. And you could get them going. But now, all you can do is call for help.
