What Does an Alternator Do?

The alternator in the vehicle is one part that has the responsibility to power an abundant number of features when you drive. The common misconception is the car battery is responsible for powering everything in your car, but without the alternator, you'd be hard pressed to even move out of your driveway.

The alternator in your vehicle recharges each time the car is running, allowing it to provide power to dozens of systems and features you may just take for granted each time you drive.

Once the car is running, the alternator powers the car door locks, the windows, the heater, the entertainment system, the air conditioning, the charging ports, the exterior lights, the security system, and all the gauges you need on your dashboard.

One thing you can do today to preserve your investment for tomorrow is getting your vehicle to KIA of Fargo so we can do a maintenance check-up.
