The alternator is a critical component in your Ford, responsible for charging the battery and supply electricity to various other systems in your car. Once your engine starts, your alternator is what takes over for your battery to help supply the electrical energy needed for it to be able to run all day. The alternator also helps by converting mechanical energy to electrical energy to allow other electrical features and systems to function, like power windows or your radio. Issues with the power for these systems or starting your car can point to a possible alternator problem. Replacing your alternator is important before it fails completely. Watching out for the symptoms to a failing alternator will allow you to replace parts as needed. Symptoms can include flickering dashboard lights or dimming headlights. You might also have an indicator light in your vehicle shaped like a battery or the 'ALT' symbol. The battery in your car can also start to have issues and die frequently. When replacing your Ford alternator, it's critical to get an OEM part for the job. Aftermarket parts may not have the same lifespan guarantees and can cause problems with the operation of your vehicle. You can view our range of OEM Ford alternators here on our online store.
