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.
Any problems in the alternator or battery charging system will show up as the declining performance of one or more electrical accessories. Here is a list of the most common warning signs that emerge when you have an electrical problem in need of an Alternator Inspection & Charging System Service:
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.
It’s essential when dealing with an automotive electrical system that you rely on expert professional service. The complexity of the alternator and battery charging system are way over the head of average mechanics lacking certification. When you have an electrical malfunction, it’s no time to try and cut corners getting the job done at an ordinary mechanic.
