When Your Alternator Is Starting to Break Down
If you have dim lights in your car or you notice trouble getting your car to start in the morning, this could mean that your alternator is starting to break down. As part your electrical system, the alternator is responsible for recharging your battery when your car is running.
The alternator doesn’t usually need a ton of maintenance. You won’t know anything is wrong with your alternator until you have problems with the electrical system in your car and further investigation becomes necessary. If the low power dashboard light comes on and stays on, this means your battery power is low. When this occurs, it’s important to bring your car to our service center at Rusnak/Pasadena Porsche for further diagnostic testing.
We will check your vehicle over carefully and determine if the problem is with your battery or with your alternator. Once the problem is fixed, you will be able to drive your car safely once again.
