How to Know if You Need an Alternator Replacement
Is your car experiencing electrical issues, like dimming headlights or the radio suddenly shutting off? It may be time for an alternator repair or replacement at our Milford shop. The alternator works with your battery to supply power to the vehicle’s electrical system. It does this by converting mechanical energy to electrical energy while the engine is running. This process takes a significant amount of battery power to start your car and keep it running; without the alternator, the battery’s power reserve wouldn’t last very long. Since the electrical system in your car relies on the alternator to power components, electrical issues are a common sign that your alternator is failing. Some signs you may need an alternator replacement or repair are:
- The warning indicator light in the dashboard (titled “ALT” or “GEN”) is illuminated
- The headlights are dim or flickering
- Electrical issues, such as slow power windows or dim dashboard lights
- Odd squealing, grinding, or growling noises
- Your car stalls or has difficulty starting
