What Does an Alternator Do?

The alternator in your vehicle is providing power to all those devices you depend on when you drive. Most people think the car battery is the part that powers these devices, but it falls squarely on the lap of the alternator.

Getting the charging system maintained each year will make certain that the alternator is in working order. The alternator failing could cause one or all of the following systems to fail.

Here is a short list of some of the things the alternator has the responsibility of powering. If running efficiently, the alternator powers the windows, doors, security system, gauges on the dash, the headlights, the interior lights, the air conditioning, the heat, the defroster, and the charging stations for your mobile devices.

Before putting it off another day, get your vehicle into our shop at Kia Downtown Los Angeles and give our mechanics the chance to give the alternator a clean bill of health.
