What is an alternator?

An alternator is one of the most important parts of a car, without which a car would not even start in the first place! To explain in the simplest terms possible, the alternator’s job is to maintain the car’s engine. An alternator ensures that our car’s battery is fully charged and supports the other parts of the car that also need electricity, like the AC, the radio, and more. An alternator uses the engine’s power to generate electricity to keep the whole mechanism running. The engine power is transmitted to the alternator, which is done through the serpentine belt. That is why mechanics stress that your serpentine belt needs to be in top-notch condition.
