Definitions for "Alternator"
An electric generator or dynamo for producing alternating currents.
An electric generator producing an electric current that reverses its direction regularly and continually.
The alternator (generator) supplies electric power for the vehicle's electric systems and also recharges the battery when the engine is running. If it fails, the engine will continue to run using the battery power, but the car will eventually stop as soon as the battery will be completely discharged. When the alternator fails, there is a warning light on the instrument panel that comes on with the engine running. Usually it's something like or " charge" warning light. If you see that sign on your instrument panel while driving, have your vehicle inspected before it dies on you
