car alternator tips

14 October 2010 No Comment

The alternator powers the entire electrical system and provides power to operate all of your car’s electricals and the engine. It keeps the vehicle’s battery charged and its importance becomes more and more important in the winter times.

Have you ever notice your headlights dim when you are using your heater and wipers – and really dim if you add the radio – this is often a warning sign that the alternator in your vehicle may be on the way out, or may not have the capacity needed to power the vehicle’s electrical system.

An Auto Electrician can check the vehicle’s electrical system for problems, make sure the battery is okay, they will also check the alternator output to make sure it is operating properly. If the alternator is the one for the blame, replace it or upgrade it – if necessary.

Bosch, for instance, offers both new and remanufactured alternators that meet and often exceed original vehicle specifications.
