Alternators

You need an alternator to generate enough electricity to run your gas or diesel engine and power your electrical accessories like the heater/AC fan, power seats, stereo, on board computers, and so on. You know that your battery stores electricity – enough to start your engine and get you moving.

 

But that's about it – you can only go a few miles in Grand Rapids on battery power alone. In addition, the alternator is needed to recharge your battery. So when it isn't working properly, there isn't enough electricity for all of those things. You aren't going very far if your alternator fails... 

 

So why does your alternator fail? Usually, they are just worn out. Alternators work really hard - they spin 2 to 3 times faster than the engine. The bearings, the copper wire coils and the magnets (that generate electricity) all can wear out. 

Get a bad alternator replaced as soon as you can since there's no sense in hobbling along with an alternator that's not working properly. It will fail at some point and leave you stranded. 

 

The team at A-1 Electric is able to make sure that you have the correct alternator output so your battery remains charged when driving. You might need a beefed-up alternator if you use a lot of additional electrical devices in the vehicle, like computers, DVD players, power inverters and such, or if you regularly tow a travel trailer whose battery recharges as you drive.

A-1 Electric can rebuild your original Alternator or Starter to keep your hot rod original.  Sometimes we are able to beef up the existing units for more output for quicker starts, and a larger charging system for the demands of the electrical system.
