How To Tell if You Should Have Your Alternator Checked

Do you know where your vehicle gets the power it needs to operate? Did you know that your alternator is just as important as your battery? Maintaining this piece of equipment is vital to keeping your car or truck running.

The alternator is much like a generator or power source for your battery. When the vehicle is in operation, the alternator feeds energy to the battery. This instrument also helps the battery run several items at once. If you notice that your lights dim off and on or there is a battery light that flashes or stays lit, then you may have a charging issue. You may also notice a screeching or whining sound coming from your engine.

To make sure your alternator has the right charge to travel around the city, you should schedule an inspection today. Patterson Honda can help you avoid getting left on the side of the road from power issues.
