Signs Your Alternator Needs Repairing

There are a few key signs that your alternator might need to be repaired or replaced. If you notice any of the following, don’t hesitate to bring your car into our shop:

The engine is losing power. This is usually the first sign that something is wrong with the alternator. If you notice that your engine is losing power, stalling, or taking longer than usual to start, it could be a sign that the alternator needs to be repaired or replaced.

The headlights are dimming or flickering. Another common sign of alternator trouble is dim or flickering headlights. If you notice that your headlights are dimming when you’re driving at night or during bad weather, it’s a good idea to have them checked out as soon as possible as they could be a sign of a bigger problem.

The battery warning light is on. Most cars have a warning light on the dash that comes on when there’s an issue with the battery or charging system. If you see this light come on, it means that there’s likely something wrong with either the battery or the alternator (or both).
