What Does an Alternator Do in my Car?

The alternator is working hard to provide you a number of the luxuries you are used to having each time you get into your vehicle. For that reason, it is important to have the charging system maintained each year at the service center so you can continue to ride without issue.

The alternator charges itself when the vehicle is running. A belt from the engine to alternator spins when the engine is running, charging the alternator so it can effectively power those other systems.

The alternator is responsible for powering the car windows, the door locks, the dashboard gauges, the air conditioning, the mobile charging stations, the heater, the defroster, the exterior lights, the windshield wipers, the interior lights, and the power seats.

If you call Pensacola Honda and speak with our friendly service department, they can schedule your vehicle for annual service checkups and maintenance to check the alternator's health.
