A properly functioning alternator is essential for the continued performance of your vehicle. What does the alternator do? Well, it recharges your battery, using engine power, and it also delivers power to your car’s electrical components. Essentially, it keeps the battery from losing charge, and of course if your battery dies, your car is no more than an expensive paperweight.
In the past, your alternator didn’t have to do much more than just power your headlights, and a few accessories like your radio. Think about all the accessories your car comes with today…entertainment systems use up a lot of power, and then you may have on-board navigation, power windows, power mirrors, and perhaps even heated seats.
Alternators, batteries, mufflers, heaters, engines…oh my! So much can go wrong with your vehicle this winter. To prevent being stranded on the side of the road visit Able Auto Service.
