An alternator is an electrical generator that functions to convert mechanical energy into electrical energy. The alternating current produced in our systems is where the true power comes from. This integral device turns the mechanical energy of the engine’s rotating crank into electricity through induction. The power that results is what fuels your car’s accessories. Anything from headlights to the electro-hydraulic parts on your vehicle may be affected by the alternator.
