What is an Alternator?

When you're a more informed car owner, you can better recognize when your car needs servicing, rather than leaving it until a more serious problem develops. This knowledge can save you a lot of money in the long run.

Integral to your car's battery, the alternator is responsible for keeping it charged while the car is running as well as powering other electrical systems, such as your windshield wipers and headlights. When your alternator malfunctions, you may notice electrical items in your car behaving strangely. It can even cause your engine to stop running. An indicator light on your dashboard will usually warn you that the alternator is malfunctioning and needs servicing.
