Your Dealership Alternative for Alternator Repair in Rochester, MN
Your vehicle's alternator is Important
The alternator is a critical component of your vehicle's operation, as many systems rely on it. The alternator turns energy from the engine's rotating crank shaft into electricity that other parts of your vehicle use. It makes sure the engine and the rest of your vehicle have the power needed to function properly - from air conditioning to radio to headlights.
The alternator also keeps the battery fully charged to have the power necessary to start your car. In hybrid vehicles, the alternator helps to ensure the vehicle has enough electricity, so it can operate when the engine is not running.
Because the alternator is an integral part of your vehicle's electrical systems, many automotive problems can affect its function. This can sometimes make diagnosis of alternator repair needs, as well as other mechanical issues, more difficult.
Timely alternator repair serves you well
The time for alternator repair, if not complete alternator replacement, is when it is failing. Possible signs of impending failure include:
A warning light illuminated on your dash with 'GEN' or 'ALT'
Vehicle stalling or having difficulty starting
Dead battery - which cannot be recharged by the alternator
Dim or flickering headlights
Other electrical failures
There is never a convenient time for alternator repair, let alone alternator failure. Your vehicle cannot function without a functioning alternator. If you are noticing any signs of failure, it's crucial to obtain a definitive diagnosis of the problem.
