Your Alternator Keeps Your Electrical System Running

Every vehicle has an electrical system involved. At the heart of this system is your automotive battery. But like any battery, it will discharge without a steady stream of current to keep its levels at the appropriate level.

That is where your alternator comes in. Your alternator is basically a small generator that works in tandem with your engine to not only recharge your car battery, but it also powers other small electrical systems in your vehicle at the same time like your lights and radio.

As the engine works it turns a series of pulleys powered by a large belt. One of the pulleys is attached to your alternator. That rotation is what turns the alternator and generates the current that you need.

If you have any questions or concerns about your alternator or your electrical system in general then call or visit our service center here at Deland Kia in Deland, FL.
