Alternator Diagnosis / Replacement

Alternator Repair

The alternator keeps the battery charged. It also provides power to run lights and other electric accessories on a running vehicle. An alternator is an A/C generator. Cars used to have generators, since cars run off DC current.

The reason manufacturers went to alternators is that they charge better at low RPM's. The A/C output of the alternator is changed to DC by rectifier diodes in the alternator, so a car alternator really puts out DC power.

Symptoms of a bad alternator include hard or slow cranking when you try to start your vehicle, lights that seem too dim, and of course the "BATT" or "GEN" light glowing on the dash. However, an alternator can have problems without the "alt", "bat", or "gen" light coming on.

The alternator itself is responsible for turning this light on and off (voltage regulator, actually, inside the alternator on most cars), so it can go bad and not turn the light on. If you think you have a bad alternator, call Engle Automotive to diagnose and fix your alternator issues.
