Off to A Good Start

An important component of the car is the alternator. It acts as a generator for the vehicle. Once the battery transfers power to start the car, the alternator takes over and provides the power needed for operation.

The battery and the alternator are usually located on opposite sides of the vehicle under the hood. The alternator is often round in shape and sometimes has open spaces on one side. An alternator is usually bolted in place and is easy to change in most vehicles if there are any issues. A balanced amount of electricity needs to be delivered throughout the battery and the alternator so that each component works properly.

If you suspect any issues, the service department at DeMontrond Volvo Cars in Houston can examine the alternator. Mechanics can also discuss with you about what to look for if you suspect that there are any issues with the charging and electrical system.
