Your Vehicle's Electrical System Hinges On The Functionality Of Your Alternator


Your car, truck, or SUV has multiple systems that run on electricity. At the heart of this is your battery. But how can your car battery last for years on end like that without getting completely drained?

That is where your alternator comes in. Your alternator is basically a tiny generator that recharges your battery as your engine runs and it powers other electrical systems as well. An example of that would be your lights and radio.

As your engine rotates while it is running, it turns your main serpentine belt. There are many components that are powered by that belt, and your alternator is one of them. As it rotates it generates electricity and sends it to your battery to maintain its charge. If your alternator fails, you will inevitably find yourself on the side of the road in a hurry.

If you have any questions or concerns about your alternator or electrical system in general, then ask one of the experts here at Flood Ford Lincoln in Narragansett.
