Alternators are an important part of any car’s electrical system, and they convert mechanical energy into electrical energy to keep the battery charged. Advance Auto Parts can test your alternator to see if it is working properly.
You can bring your car into any Advance Auto Parts store and our team can test the alternator for free. We will hook up a voltmeter to the battery and start the engine. If the voltmeter reading is above 13.5, then the alternator is working properly.
It is important to get your alternator tested regularly, as it can affect other parts of your car’s electrical system if it is not working properly. If you have any questions about getting your alternator tested, please ask one of our team members at Advance Auto Parts.
