Defective Computers or Wiring
The cost of a defective computer or malfunctioning electric system can prove immense. These systems often provide some of the basic safety features motorists depend on. Beyond luxury safety features, these computers provide crucial information to instrumental parts of a motor vehicle. As a result, a loss of electrical power or malfunctioning computer can result in the following problems:
- Loss of antilock brakes
- Missed engine warnings
- Failure to indicate an empty fuel tank
- Inability to start the car
- Inability to shift gears in an automatic transmission
- Airbag malfunction
These malfunctions lead to a loss of control or a dangerous lack of safety devices in case of an accident.
