Car Won't Start? Maybe it's Your Alternator

Whenever a car won’t start, the first thing people think of is the battery, but this might not be the real culprit. The alternator recharges your battery while your car is running. It also operates components such as the windshield wipers, headlights, radio, and other small electrical systems. When your car won’t start, it could be the alternator not charging the battery properly.

An alternator may malfunction because the alternator itself has gone bad or because the belt that drives it is loose, or needs replaced. If the alternator belt is worn, the car may make a squealing sound. It can also cause electrical components to work erratically. Having your alternator checked on a regular basis can save you a lot of hassle on the road.
