At Automotive Super Center our profesionals can solve a number of alternator problems, and get you back on the road. The alternator is a relatively simple component with only a few parts and it plays a critical role in your vehicle's operation. It essentially turns the energy of the engine's rotating crank shaft into electricity through induction. The wires inside the alternator cut through a magnetic field; this in turn induces electrical current. The current is then used to power your car's accessories, which can be anything from a CD player to the headlights. The alternator also is in charge of keeping the battery fully charged, which gives it the power it needs to start the car.
