Could the Problem be Your Alternator?

The alternator powers the electrical system of the car when it is running. The battery’s job is to start the car and the alternator takes over after that. When an alternator goes out, it can leave you stranded.

Many cars have a sensor to tell you when the alternator is not generating electricity properly. If the GEN or ALT light on the dashboard comes on, it is time to get it checked quickly. Alternator problems can be similar to other electrical problems and it can be difficult to determine if the alternator is the culprit. Taking your car to a professional can save you a lot of time and money by getting to the root of the problem.

Alternator problems get worse over time. If your car is showing signs of alternator trouble, bring your car in today for an inspection at our Merced, CA service center.
