The Function of the Alternator

Your vehicle needs a good battery in order to get it started, but it needs a properly functioning alternator to keep it running after it is started. The alternator in your vehicle spins around and generates electricity that keeps the lights and the electrical equipment running. The alternator also charges up the battery and keeps it charged.

If your vehicle is experiencing problems with the alternator, your car's battery light or separate alternator light may illuminate. If the lights in your interior or your headlights seem dim while you are driving, this is often an indication that the alternator is not performing properly. Sometimes, a malfunctioning alternator will make a buzzing sound while in operation.

If your car's alternator is not working properly, Auto Express Fiat of Erie conveniently located in Waterford, PA is the place to come to have it checked out. Schedule an appointment with the friendly service department as soon as possible.
