How the Alternator Works in Your Vehicle

Your vehicle needs a continual source of power in order to drive down the road. While the battery has some power when standing alone, the battery would run out of power quickly if it never got charged back up again. The alternator recharges your battery while you are driving, recycling energy and bringing your battery to near capacity.

A warning light that shows a battery could simply mean that you have an old battery and it's not holding a charge. This can also mean that your alternator isn't working properly. You may also have an ALT warning light on your vehicle, which clearly indicates a problem with your alternator.

If your warning light is on, or your lights are not at full power, you need to get help for your car immediately. Contact our service department at Don Tester Ford-Lincoln Inc or bring your car in to be checked out so you don't get stranded.
