Is my alternator bad?
The purpose of an alternator is to keep your battery charged, providing
the power to run all of your electrical accessories in your car while
it's running. There are several symptoms that might be telling of
a bad alternator. When you are aware of these warning signs, it makes
it easier to take care of the problem before it becomes more inconvenient.
Your car might even have technology that alerts you when your alternator
has gone bad. If you don't have this technology, here are some of
the common signs:
- Dashboard or service lights flicker/switch on and off
- Battery voltage is consistently lower than 13 V
- Poor electrical accessory performance (dimming headlights, interior lights
or dashboard lights)
- Clanging or rattling noise coming from the car (problem with alternator
belt or its other parts)
Any of these signs could indicate that your alternator is no longer able
to charge your battery effectively. It is important that you have a mechanic
from our shop check up on this right away to prevent future troubles.
Driving at night with a poor battery or bad alternator could leave you
lost in the dark. Even newer vehicles could have alternator problems if
the belt or other parts have come loose. We will help you find a fast
solution to your alternator or battery troubles, offering you a written
estimate before any work is done. With more than four decades of experience
spotting bad alternators, we are prepared to help.
