You may not know what your alternator does or how it works, but you should consider how vital it is to life of your vehicle vehicle. Failed alternators are the #1 cause of dead car batteries, leaving millions of motorists stranded every year. So, it is important to have a basic working knowledge of how the alternator functions and what you can do to help prevent costly repairs.

The alternator is located on the engine itself and plays the role of providing power to the battery. It keeps the battery regularly charged and the car’s electrical system and computer up and running. The alternator works as hard as any part of your car, so eventually it is bound to fizzle out. The average life of an alternator is about seven years, or 150,000 miles. Several factors can impact the longevity of your alternator, including the quality of the part, the condition of the vehicle, and how many electronics are going.
