Battery Charging System Test Service


Ford Charging System Test Service in Cambridge, Ontario


At Ridgehill Ford, we are your trusted Ford Battery Charging System experts. The battery charging system is crucial for vehicle performance and driving comfort. At the heart of the battery charging system is the alternator that functions as a generator by creating electricity as needed for the battery. The alternator accepts energy from the drive belt and uses it to generate electricity.


Testing Your Car Battery

It is not the battery but the alternator that provides the electricity for the electrical accessories when the engine is running. Without an alternator, none of your vehicle’s electrical accessories will work. If your Ford car, truck, van, or SUV experience electrical problems, we invite you to Ridgehill Ford for a battery charging system test service to isolate the problem and get the corrective maintenance or repair as needed to establish factory specifications. The Ridgehill Ford Service Center is conveniently located in Cambridge, Ontario near Kitchener, Waterloo, and Guelph.

Service starts with a physical inspection of the electrical system including the battery, alternator, battery terminals, and clean connections. If the battery, alternator, and connections are in good physical condition, the expert technician uses a multimeter to evaluate the system’s performance.
