Alternator Little Rock Arkansas
The car battery light, like most of your dash lights, lights up when there's an issue with that vehicles system. Your cars battery stores enough electricity to start your engine and get you moving. The alternator is what generates more electricity to keep your engine running and power your vehicles accessories such as stereo, power seats, heater fan, onboard computers and so on. It also needs to recharge your battery. Alternators are driven by your serpentine belt and spin 2 to 3 times faster than the engine – that's a lot of work. The bearings wear out, as do the copper wire coils and magnets that generate the electricity. An alternator that's not working properly will fail at some point, and could leave you stranded. Your Parkway Automotive ASE certified technician is trained to diagnose the cause, and provide the safest, lowest cost solution to the problem.
