How the Alternator Works in Your Vehicle

The alternator is part of the power supply system. When it isn't working correctly, the alternator will cause problems such as dim lights, or a frequently dead battery. The alternator is responsible for getting your battery fully charged when your car is running. Without an alternator, your car would die fast while out on the road.

Not every problem with the power supply with your vehicle means that the alternator is faulty. There can be an issue with one of the belts that makes your alternator work. The battery could be old and unable to hold the charge that the alternator is supplying.

If a warning light goes on that is a battery sign or ALT, this is a clear sign that your alternator isn't working correctly. Get your car checked out right away if a warning light goes on. At Eagle Volvo, our service center will fix the problem right away.
