Signs of a Bad Alternator
There could be several causes of bad alternators. If you need to jump start your battery frequently, or the new battery you just purchased is not holding a charge, it could be a side-effect of a bad alternator. Some signs of a bad alternator to keep an eye out for include:
- The alternator warning light turns on
- Strange noises, like growling or whining noises
- Unpleasant smells
- Dim or overly bright lights
- Regular stalling or difficulty starting
- Bad belts
The alternator provides electricity to different components in your car, including your air conditioner and dashboard lights. Any additional power created by the alternator is stored for later use in your car’s battery.
