Find Out More About Your Vehicle's Alternator

At DCH Acura of Temecula, we strive to help keep our customers informed about how their vehicles function, which will help them run smoothly. Your vehicle's starting system includes the battery, starter, and alternator. An alternator will keep the battery charged when the vehicle is on, and it also keeps other electrical components, which include the headlights, working properly. Read our summary below to learn more about your vehicle's alternator.

There are some warning signs that can let you know if your alternator needs service. If the lights are dim and the instruments and gauges stop functioning, it could be a problem with the alternator. In addition, the smell of burning rubber or a high-pitched whining sound could also be indicators that your alternator is faulty.

The next time that you need to have your alternator inspected, contact our service center.
