An alternator is an electrical generator that is designed to transform mechanical energy into electricity. It is a very common technology in the modern world. Electrical power plants use it to convert moving water or steam into electrical energy to be distributed to a community. Inside your vehicle, the alternator is used to supply an electrical charge to your battery so that the battery will be able to start the vehicle next time you wish to use it. They are normally found at the front of vehicle engines. They convert the mechanical motion of the pistons into electricity to be used by electrically powered systems and to recharge your car battery.
Your vehicle can function for a while on a faulty alternator, but it won’t run on a dead one. Here are a few of the key signs your alternator is on its last legs:
