Does your vehicle have adaptive cruise, lane guidance or park assist? Then your vehicle has an Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS).

Starters: It’s not always the battery that’s the problem when your car won’t start. The starter is what cranks the engine so if it’s not working properly, your car won’t start. A clicking noise when you turn the key or press the button, or the dashboard lights up but the engine won’t power up are also signs that you have a problem with your starter.
Alternators: Your alternator is also a key component in powering your vehicle. The alternator charges the battery while the vehicle is running as well as works with the battery to operate other electrical components in the vehicle. A dead battery, battery warning light on the dash, smell of burning rubber and trouble starting are some of the signs your alternator is failing.
