The alternator in your vehicle has a big job. An alternator charges your battery and supplies power to your electronics so that they work properly. When your alternator stops working, your battery is going to die fast. You can get stranded on the road easily without a good alternator.

If you notice that your car is not as powerful as usual, or your battery keeps dying, your alternator may be the problem. Sometimes the issue is a bad battery and your alternator is fine. When your battery has been replaced and still dies easily, it's time to have your alternator checked.
