What Purpose Does Your Vehicle's Alternator Serve?

In order to keep your vehicle in good shape, it can be helpful if you understand its basic components, which is why we have offered some useful information about your vehicle's alternator below.

Your vehicle's starting system includes three major components that include the starter, battery, and alternator. The alternator's primary purpose is to keep the battery charged when the vehicle is running, but it also helps the battery keep the electrical components in your vehicle charged, which may include the windshield wipers, headlights, and more. When an alternator is faulty, you may notice dim lighting as well as instruments and gauges not working properly. In addition, if you notice a smell that resembles burning rubber or a high-pitched sound coming from under the hood, you should probably have your alternator checked.

At Kokomo Honda, one of our service technicians can inspect your alternator to ensure that your vehicle's staring system is in optimal condition.
