What an Alternator Does and Why It's Important

The alternator is an essential component to the function and performance of any vehicle. It is responsible for creating the power and energy necessary to run your car's electrical system, as well as charge the battery. Your car's battery provides the quick power it needs to start the motor and your alternator takes care of all the rest.

It is important that your alternator is running at its optimum capabilities. Otherwise, you could experience a variety of electrical issues or the power to your engine could cease completely. Ensure you have your alternator inspected as part of your regularly-scheduled maintenance. In addition, if you experience battery issues, electrical variations in performance, or loss of power, you should have your alternator looked at.
