It happens if you own your vehicle long enough. You turn the key, and instead of firing up the engine, all you hear are rapid clicks. Is your battery dead? Maybe, but the same situation could happen again with a new battery, if you miss signs of a failing alternator. An alternator charges the battery while the vehicle is running.
Here are some symptoms of a failing alternator –
1. Dimming or flickering lights
2. Odd noises…usually coming from the serpentine belt
3. The engine stalls
4. The dreaded “check engine light” goes on and STAYS on
