What Purpose Does a Vehicle's Alternator Serve?

Your alternator is an important piece of equipment that is part of the starting system. You can think of it like a generator because it keeps the battery charged while your vehicle is running. Our staff at DCH Gardena Honda would like to help you stay informed about your vehicle, so here is some information about your vehicle's alternator.

Your vehicle's starting system includes a battery, starter, and charger. The alternator works with the battery to keep the headlights, windshield wipers, and other electrical components working correctly. It is important to notice for signs that your alternator is failing. For instance, if you notice the smell of burning rubber, dim lights, or a shrieking sound coming from the engine, your alternator should be inspected.

We welcome you to schedule an appointment at our service center if you need to have your alternator inspected.
