Presentation Description

The alternator is generally used in a car for generating the electricity for the several electrical components of the car and charge its battery frequently. It can produce the electrical energy which can convert the mechanical energy to keep the battery charged and produce the necessary electrical current to power up the components. But when your car has any types of electrical issues, then make sure that it arises due to a failed battery or failed alternator. The following slide defines the reasons behind the alternator of your car is not charging.

Slide1:

Why the Alternator of the Car is not Charging

Slide2:

The alternator are generally used in your car for generating electricity for the several electrical components of the car as well as for charging its battery.

Slide3:

It can produce the electrical energy by converting the mechanical energy to keep the battery charged and produce the electrical current to power up the components.

Slide4:

When people have electrical problems in their car, they get confused and thought that it arises due to the failed battery instead of a failed alternator.

Slide5:

If you want to learn about the different issues of the alternator in your car, then you have to learn about the different causes of the alternator which stop charging.

Slide6:

The following points define the causes behind the alternator is not charging in your car.

Slide7:

Fuse blew

Slide8:

In few model cars, the alternator completely depends on a particular fuse to operate and these fuses can blow due to the power surge.

Slide9:

Once the fuses are blown out, the alternator will no longer charge the battery. So check your owner's manual for recognizing these fuses.

Slide10:

Worn out belt

Slide11:

The belt or pulley of the car can produce mechanical power and convert them into electrical energy by the alternator.

Slide12:

If the belts are stretched out too much, then it can easily break and cause snap apart. As a result, the alternator unable to produce the charge needed by the battery.

Slide13:

Failed battery

Slide14:

The battery of the car do not last forever because each part of the car has their own lifespans. The car battery will last as per your driving habits and climate condition.

Slide15:

Lifespan of the batteries will generally last longer in colder environments and short in hotter environments. When it is failed, the alternator is not charging.

Slide16:

Wiring issues

Slide17:

The car has wiring components to perform several tasks as well as help the car to produce the necessary power for the alternator.

Slide18:

When any of the tires is disconnected or cut, then it will not produce the generated power. As a result, the alternator won't charge the battery until the wire is replaced.

Slide19:

Computer error

Slide20:

The modern cars have a central computer system which helps you to manage and operate the car's components and parts.

Slide21:

The computer can manage the alternator as well, but when the computer has an error, it malfunctions the alternator and prevent it from charging.

Slide22:

Conclusion

Slide23:

You can test the failed alternator of the car by connecting the voltmeter to the battery when the engine is off.

Slide24:

If the voltage reading of the alternator is between 12 and 13 volts, then it is normal. But lower reading indicates that the alternator is failed and unable to charge the battery.
