Starters and Alternators
Dim headlights? Slow windshield wipers and turn signals? Weak battery? It could be the alternator.
The alternator, which powers the vehicleâ€™s entire electrical system, not only provides current to operate all of your carâ€™s electrical accessories and the engine â€“ it keeps the vehicleâ€™s battery charged, and its importance is amplified as the weather turns colder and the vehicle uses more power-robbing accessories.
So if you notice your headlights dim when you are using your heater and wipers â€“ and really dim if you add the radio â€“ this is often a warning sign that the alternator in your car may not be working up to capacity, or may not have the capacity needed to power the vehicleâ€™s electrical needs.
