Read Here to Learn the Importance of Your Vehicle's Alternator

The best way to keep your vehicle in the best possible condition is to understand how it functions. One important piece of equipment that is included in your vehicle is the alternator. You can learn more about your vehicle's alternator by reading our content below.

An alternator is part of your vehicle's charging system. This charging system also includes the starter and battery. The alternator will keep the battery charged when you are driving by acting as a generator. Moreover, the alternator also helps the battery keep your vehicle's electrical components, such as the windshield wipers and headlights, functioning. A whining sound, the smell of burning rubber, or dim lights could be a sign that your alternator has gone bad.

Stop by our service center at Basic Auto Sales serving Ashland and Richmond if you think you have a faulty alternator. Our services technicians will be happy to provide you with an alternator inspection.
