Signs Your Alternator Needs Replacement

You've probably heard of an alternator, and maybe you've even had one replaced. But do you know what an alternator actually does? Some people think that the battery is responsible for powering the car, but this is actually not quite true.

Your alternator is the piece of equipment that keeps your battery charged so that it can supply electricity. If your alternator isn't working, you could have a battery that is in perfect condition, but your car still won't start up. There's usually a warning light on the dashboard that will tell you if your alternator needs to be replaced, but if your power windows and locks, radio, or other electrical component is weak, get to a mechanic immediately. These are other signs that your alternator is very close to dying.
