What the Alternator Does

The alternator rotates to create enough voltage to charge the battery once the ignition has energized the rotor on the alternator. The battery produces enough current to start the engine. The alternator continues to work to help power accessories, such as the radio and lights.

When the alternator starts failing, it won’t keep the battery charged. Some vehicles provide a warning that the alternator needs to be replaced, while others may simply fail. It can be difficult to know if the problem is the alternator or the battery, which is why it’s best to have it serviced by professionals.

Signs of a Bad Alternator

Some common signs that your alternator may need to be replaced, include the following:

  • The battery or other indicator light stays lit on the dashboard.
  • The lights are weak or appear to dim when you start the engine or accelerate.
  • There are issues with other electrical components, such as the radio.
  • You hear a squealing noise or grinding.
  • You notice a burning smell, which may indicate the alternator belt is worn.
  • A new or healthy battery must be jump-started.

If your vehicle won’t start or you notice these issues, your first thought may be that the battery needs to be replaced. If it’s old and nearing the end of its life, the battery could be the issue. On the other hand, if your battery still has a lot of life left, it may indicate that the issue is with the alternator. It’s best to test the battery before replacing it to ensure you are taking care of the real source of the problem.
