Alternator and Charging Service


alternator removed from vehicle

While the engine provides the power to move your car, the electrical system handles almost everything else. The battery provides power to the starter motor when you turn the key, and the alternator keeps the battery charged and supplies electricity to other components in the vehicle while it’s running. When something goes wrong with the charging system, there are some pretty clear symptoms.

Signs of Charging System Issues

  • Dead Battery
  • Power Loss
  • No Start
  • Charging Fault Light
  • Headlights and Dash Lights Dim at Idle

Charging system issues are usually connected to the battery, the alternator, or wiring. Diagnosing electrical issues can be difficult and time-consuming.
