What Does a Car Alternator Do?

In order to better understand the job of the alternator in your vehicle, you need to know the truth about your car battery. Despite common misconceptions, the car battery is not responsible for providing power to all the devices and systems in your vehicle or it would burn out rather quickly.

The alternator in the car is charged by way of a belt and will give the power needed to make certain all those devices you depend on are all running perfectly when you drive.

If the alternator has been maintained and is running at a peak state, it will provide power to the exterior lights, the dash gauges, the interior lights, the car security system, the radio, the air conditioning, the heater, and the door locks.

Before the next season moves in, now is the best time to bring your vehicle to Koons Volvo Owings Mills for a complete check-up and inspection.
