What Does an Alternator Do?

The alternator is responsible for providing power to most of the accessories in your vehicle. Most people think the car battery does the work and are surprised to discover how effective the alternator really is.

The best thing you can do each year is get your vehicle to the service station so they can do a complete servicing of the charging system. By maintaining the charging system, it is less likely the alternator will fail and leave you without the things you need to drive each day.

When the alternator is running fine, you won't even notice what it is powering. Without a charged alternator, you may not be able to use the air conditioning, doors, windows, heat, radio, GPS system, headlights, interior lights, or any of the gauges inside.

Now is the perfect time to schedule your next car maintenance check with one of our skilled mechanics at Ray Laks Acura of Buffalo.
