Why do i need this service?
As the engine provides only mechanical energy, it does not generate electricity. So we need a power source which produces electricity to power all the electrical accessories in your car. And that’s where the alternator comes in. The vehicle’s charging system consists of a car battery, the voltage regulator, and the alternator. Your alternator converts mechanical energy to electrical energy with an alternating current. The stator and rotor inside the alternator work as magnets and rotate to generate the alternating current. Then the alternating current(AC) is transformed into a direct current(DC) that charges the battery. Both overcharging and undercharging your battery can be a serious issue. The voltage regulator sends the power from the alternator to the battery, controls the amount of energy to provide a steady flow of power to the battery.
