Signs it’s Time to Replace Your Car Alternator
The alternator is located on the engine and is one of the most important parts of the charging system. Alternators recharge the battery while the engine is running; typically they don’t require any maintenance and only need to be replaced if they stop working. When the alternator fails, your engine will run, but only until its battery power is drained. Most alternators last around 100,000 to 150,000 miles, but they can last longer, especially if you drive your car daily.
Here are common warning signs that it’s time to replace your car alternator:
- Dim, overly bright, or pulsating headlights
- Repeatedly needing to jump-start your car
- A dead battery
- Slow or intermittently malfunctioning electrical system
- A squealing sound coming from the engine
- Trouble starting your car
- Frequent stalling
- Whining or growling noises
- A burning rubber smell
- The battery warning light is on
If you’ve noticed any of these signs, schedule an appointment with us!
