Why Choose Southport Wreckers for Used Alternators Near Me?
How to Diagnose an Used Alternator Problem
The Easiest way to tell when your car requires a replacement alternator, is to have someone jump start the car, then remove the leads, including the leads of your battery. If the car continues to run, then your alternator is doing what it should. However, if your car stops when you remove power from the leads, and your engine is running, then your alternator is not generating power, and requires replacement
Disclaimer: In certain situations this information could be false, as their are other electrical issues that could cause the same symptoms.
Why is my alternator light on?
Alternators generally generate 14.4 – 14.7 Volts of Electricity at a certain amount of Amperage. When the alternator is beginning to die, it will be unable to generate significant enough volts to charge your battery, which will in turn allow the car to begin to flatten the battery from 12.8v, to 10 and eventually to 9v where your cars computer will turn off. That’s why you have time before your car completely turns off.
What should I do when my alternators fails in the middle off traffic?
These can be a hard one, as you will have no charge left in your battery, and you will be unable to start or even using your hazard lights. Some cars come fit with a hazard sign that can be deployed, but I would recommend staying in your car, because its the safest place to be. A set of jump leads of anther car can charge your battery up enough to start and move it out of the road.
