Car alternators from FRM Automotive

Your car alternator will not last forever, and when it does go, it can leave you stranded somewhere with a flat car battery. Perhaps you currently have car problems such as a battery going flat all the time and you think it may be that the alternator isn’t recharging the battery!!

Have you ever heard someone say “It sounds like your alternator mate, it’s probably knackered.”

Well that’s brilliant news, as I don’t even know what an Alternator is, let alone know how to check it or replace it.

FRM Automotive can shed a little light on this topic.

What is an alternator?

An alternator is a generator and it generates an electrical current.

When does the alternator do this?

It generates an electrical current when the engine is running.

What does it do with the electrical current?

It recharges the battery.

Why do I need an alternator?

If the battery wasn’t recharged, there would be no power to run or start the car. If started with a fully charged battery and put it onto your car, the car would start and continue to draw power from the battery. For example the spark plugs in the engine will eventually deplete the battery charge, and with no power the engine will stop.

The Alternator and Engine cycle

  • The Engine is started by the battery
  • The Engine turns the alternator and the Alternator then recharges the battery.
