What does an Alternator do?
Basically, an alternator converts mechanical energy into electricity through a process called induction. The electricity is used to power anything that uses electricity, like headlights. Because it connects the mechanical and electrical parts of a vehicle, it can be affected by mechanical failures and can cause electrical issues.
Although it’s a relatively simple part of an automobile, a properly functioning alternator is critical to the functioning and efficiency of any vehicle. When an alternator fails, the vehicle may not run, and you may notice electrical issues and low fuel mileage.
