Why Your Electrical Maintenance Program is More Important Than Ever

The electrical components within a singular fleet impact nearly every single aspect of the vehicle’s performance. Even if one electrical unit malfunctions, it has the ability to negatively effect the milliamps and jump-start a chain reaction of faulty functionality. Fleet technicians were evaluated on how much they know when it comes to fixing these mechanical issues, and only 75% were able to understand the full applications process. Even more alarming is the fact that just 57% understood advanced issues that can occur.

Key Takeaways:

  • There is a saying that when it comes to electrical maintenance, little things mean a lot.
  • There are loads of functions in a truck that tie in to the electrical system and increase its load. This includes GPS/Navigation system, collision mitigation technology, and antilock brakes.
  • The modern truck has a myriad of sensors which are involved in the monitoring of a growing number of operational parameters for peak performance.

“Truck electrical systems have become highly sophisticated, with multiple micro-processors controlling many truck systems.”
