When you’re running late for an important appointment, it always seems to happen: Your car won’t start.
You’re most likely to guess that your battery is at fault but you might be wrong; it could be a failed or failing alternator.
Tracy’s Automotive can track down the cause of your no-start vehicle and repair it.
“The battery gives your vehicle the juice the engine needs to crank daily. … On the other hand, a bad alternator fails to recharge your battery as the car runs,” progressive.com says. “The signs of a bad alternator versus a bad battery are similar, making it difficult to diagnose the exact problem. Knowing the different warning signs of each going bad can help.”
Signs of a dying battery:
- Car is difficult to start
- Car doesn’t hold a start for long
- Your interior lights are dim
- Your exterior lights – headlights and taillights – are dim and flicker.
Indications of a bad alternator:
- Car dies after a jump start
- voltage light on your dash could drop
- the car might begin to vibrate
- An alternator could fail because it’s old or is subject to power steering oil leaks
- Salt water intrusion can also kill an alternator
The best way to decide if it is a dead battery or a faulty alternator is to have a trusted auto care technician like those at Tracy’s Tire Pros and Automotive find the cause and repair it.
