Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram CDJR Alternator Inspection & Charging System Service

Battery Charging & Alternator 101

The Battery and Alternator are a dynamite duo working together as vital components of your vehicle’s electrical system. Partners yet very different in job scope, the battery and alternator accomplish different electrical jobs in their own unique way. The battery stores and sends voltage to the starter to start the engine whenever you want to drive. Once the engine starts, the alternator provides electricity to power the various accessories. When the battery’s voltage dips too low, the alternator sends the battery additional voltage, so it is ever-ready to power your accessories as needed. Although the battery charging system has many vital components, the alternator is front and center to battery charging. If you have a Battery Charging System problem, the inspection will always include the alternator.

Alternator Inspection

An Alternator Inspection is much more than it sounds. Although each Alternator Inspection includes an evaluation of its physical condition, the primary part of the service is an alternator test with digital electronic equipment. A voltmeter is used to see if the alternator is performing within a specified range. If the voltage is in range, the alternator is good-to-go. A certified technician is best for an alternator inspection because they know your vehicle inside and out and have the training necessary to complete an alternator inspection test.
