If you’ve ever noticed a bunch of warning lights flashing on your dash when you start your engine, this is a test to make sure that all the circuits are working as they should. These lights go off if everything’s OK. One of the warning lights looks like a car battery. Its job is to tell you if your battery’s not charging properly. When these lights stay on or don’t come on at all, it could mean that your alternator is not working properly. So why would your alternator not work? Usually they’ve simply worn out. Alternators are driven by your serpentine belt and spin 2 to 3 times faster than the engine – that’s a lot of work. The bearings wear out, as do the cooper wire coils and magnets that generate the electricity. Don’t get left stranded, when you see signs that your alternator is failing, get it fixed.
