What Does an Alternator Do?

You may have heard of an alternator, but what exactly does it do? That's exactly what Island Honda of Kahului, HI wants you to know.

An alternator is a part of your car which charges that battery of the vehicle while your car is in motion. If it stops working, the car battery won't be able to hold a charge and your vehicle will be stopped in its tracks. On average, an alternator will last roughly seven or eight years. This number can of course be higher or lower depending on the number of miles you put on the car. Less miles means it will last longer while more miles may have you replacing it far sooner than expected.

If you have any more alternator related questions or would like to schedule a service appointment with our team here at Island Honda located in Kahului, HI, then be sure to give our friendly staff a call today!
