Learn About Your Vehicle's Alternator

Your automobile's charging system consists of the battery, starter, and alternator. The alternator is important because it helps the battery stay charged when the vehicle is running. In addition, it also helps to keep your vehicle's electrical components, such as the windshield wipers, working. Here at Ed Martin Acura, we want to help you stay informed about your vehicle, which can extend its life, so we have included some information about your vehicle's alternator below.

An alternator should be in good condition to prevent the engine from shutting down. If you notice dim lights, it could mean that your alternator is malfunctioning. Other warning signs of a faulty alternator include instruments and gauges not working, a whining noise coming from the engine, or the smell of burning rubber.

Be sure to schedule an inspection appointment at our service center when your alternator needs to be serviced.
