The alternator is a key part of your vehicle's engine that helps generate the power the battery needs to stay charged and push the car forward. When your alternator begins to fail or wears out, you may notice a slower response time when you try to use features like power windows, radio, or even turn on the vehicle.
Without a functioning alternator, your vehicle is unlikely to hold a battery charge for very long. You can end up having to jump start your vehicle multiple times to get your regular day to day errands done, and after time passes, even that may not work. Getting the alternator fixed or repaired will help your vehicle run properly, and with regular engine maintenance, it can last for close to a decade.
An old or worn out alternator puts more strain on the battery to provide all the power your car needs. Without the charging power of the alternator, the battery is limited to the power contained within. Eventually, the battery will not be able to power the entire vehicle. This can lead to you being stranded at an inopportune time when you try to start your vehicle.
