What Does Your Vehicle's Alternator Do?

You rely on your vehicle to get you to work and gets your kids to school and for a variety of other reasons. So when it fails on you, it is important to know the basics so you can communicate issues to a qualified service technician such as a faulty alternator.

​That is why we here at Adams Chevrolet Buick GMC in Wetaskiwin and Ponoka want to give you the basics. The alternator in your vehicle charges your battery while the car is running. If the alternator fails, you will quickly see that your battery will die and your car won't start. An alternator is said to last around 7 years or 100,000 miles whichever should come first. This number can, of course, be higher or lower depending on how frequently you have your vehicle serviced.
