How Your Vehicle's Alternator Functions

If you want to gain an understanding of how your vehicle works, we can help at Reynolds' Subaru in Lyme. An alternator is an important component that works like a generator. It is important to keep it in good shape because your engine can suddenly shut down due to a faulty alternator. To learn more about your vehicle's alternator, read further.

An alternator is part of your vehicle's charging system. The charging system also includes the starter and battery, and the alternator keeps the battery sufficiently charged when the vehicle is running. In addition, an alternator also helps to keep the electrical components working efficiently. A faulty alternator can produce the smell of burning rubber, dim lights, or a high-pitched sound coming from the engine.

We invite you to schedule an appointment at our service center if you think that your alternator needs to be inspected.
