Know the Signs of Alternator Problems

A dead battery means you need to recharge your battery or get a new one, unless it means your alternator is acting up. Alternators are key to a good working vehicle. Here are the signs your alternator is failing.

Pay attention to what you see, smell and hear to know if your alternator is in a bad state. Do you see a warning light that looks like a battery or shows the letters "ALT" or "GEN" on the console? Does it smell like something is frying or like burning rubber when you drive? From the hood area, are there whining, growling or screeching sounds? All these signs point to a faulty alternator.

Don't ignore warning sign because it could lead to worse problems. Stop by Jaguar Huntsville to have your alternator checked and for your other automobile service needs.
