What Does the Alternator Do?

The alternator is the one part of the charging system that is often mistaken for another. Most people think the car battery is responsible for powering the devices in your car, when it is in fact the alternator.

Keep up with your charging system maintenance checks and you'll be in a better position to avoid having a breakdown on the road and needing a tow to get emergency service. Once the alternator fails, you may not be able to operate the vehicle safely any longer.

The reason it is so important to get eyes on that alternator is because of the countless accessories it has to power. Without the alternator there would be no car security system, air conditioning, heating, charging stations, or interior and exterior lights.

The best time to have your car maintained is long before our mechanics at Jaguar Tulsa discover a serious issue that becomes an emergency repair.
