Starters and Alternators
No one wants to be left stranded unnecessarily when their car won’t start.
Along with the battery, the starter and alternator are responsible for starting your vehicle. The starter turns over the crank to start the engine, and the alternator charges the battery. If issues begin to arise, don’t delay contacting the professionals at City Tire & Auto to schedule an appointment.
If you notice any of the following symptoms, there may be an issue with your alternator:
- Battery light is lit up on the dashboard
- Lights are weak or dim
- Electrical malfunctions - eg power windows won’t work
- Squealing or grinding noises
- A healthy battery won’t hold its charge
