Aftermarket Car Alternator
As automobiles became more and more advanced after World War II, with increasingly potent engines and higher levels of amenities and comfort features, their power demands had also increased. Automotive alternators began to see widespread use during the 1960s, beginning with the 1960 model year Plymouth Valiant. Prior to this, DC dynamo generators were used to power automobiles. Alternators are responsible for recharging the battery and for providing the necessary electrical energy needed to operate headlamps, wipers, and other accessories. Signs of a bad alternator include dim or flickering lights in both the interior and exterior, chugging, engine stalling, a possible CEL (Check Engine Light), and a dead battery. Alternator problems such as these will seriously handicap drivability and a failed alternator means that the ignition and electrical systems will be rendered totally inoperable until the alternator itself is replaced and the battery is charged. Don’t let a dead car alternator leave you stranded and waiting for a jump.
