From dash lights flashing briefly, headlights dimming, not to mention odd smells and growling sounds – these may all hint at possible alternator problems. An alternator not only provides power to the vehicle’s electrical system, computer, and electrical accessories, it also keeps the battery charged. Precisely because of this, it is of utmost importance to ensure that your alternator functions properly.
Here at AutoEdge, our technicians can perform a health check on your vehicle to see if the reason your battery is dead is due to a faulty alternator or poor connection somewhere in the system. A bad alternator could leave you stuck, so it’s best to have it inspected by a professional.
