The alternator produces electric current to replace what the starter used during start up and to support electrical loads when the engine is running. An ignition module turns the low-voltage supply to the ignition coil on and off, and the coil produces the high voltage for the ignition systems. This creates a spark at the spark plugs and ignites the air / fuel mixture in the engine. A belt transmits power from the front of the engine to the alternator's pulley, along with other accessories.What Is Typical Wear and Tear?Driving Millage, Vehicle age, Excessive electrical draws like in-vehicle entertainment systemsSymptoms: Headlights and interior lights dim, Check Engine and/or battery light may come on or Accessories fail to operateNew vs Rebuilt AlternatorsAn alternator is a device which transforms mechanical energy into electrical energy.
