The alternator is a key component of your Subaru vehicle as it helps power its electrical components. Just as the name suggests, it delivers alternating current to various electrical instruments, including your dashboard lights, headlights, windshield wipers, heated seats, and car radio. When you start your Subaru model, the alternator provides power to the engine. It charges the battery by converting mechanical energy generated by the rotating crankshaft into electrical energy.
When Should I Replace My Alternator?
Over time, the moving parts of the alternator can start to wear, and you might have to shop for a replacement. You can keep an eye out for some warning signs of a failing alternator. For starters, your check engine light may turn on, or you may have a dead car battery. You may also hear unfamiliar whining or growling noises coming from your vehicle. Another sign? The smell of burning rubber can indicate your alternator is starting to wear out.
