An automotive battery is a rechargeable battery that supplies electrical energy to a motor vehicle. The main purpose is to feed power to the starter, which starts the engine. Once the vehicle is running, power for the car’s electrical systems is still supplied by the battery. The alternator charges the battery as the demand increases or decreases.

To test the battery and charging system an AVR test is performed. AVR stands for Amperage, Voltage and Resistance. When perfoming this electrical system diagnosis it will be broken down into three main systems: the starting system, charging system and battery capacity.

When starting your vehicle does it sound sluggish or slower to turn over?

Is your vehicle not starting consistently?

Is there no sound or interior lights when you try to start your vehicle?

Do you notice it takes a little longer for the vehicle to catch before starting (rolls over for a few more turns than normal)?
