What does charging system fauilar mean and will it cause ur car not to start


Asked by Sep 26, 2016 at 01:18 PM about the 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer


The charging system is the alternator/voltage regulator, battery, and circuitry. If it's not working the battery can't maintain its charge and will eventually die. Obviously with a dead battery your car will not start. Get it jumped and let a parts store do their free test on the charging system.
