Basic Knowledge on Car Batteries and Alternators

When starting your car, the most important component is your battery, and this is because your battery powers your car’s electric starter motor. But what if your starter is working just fine but your car won’t start?

The alternator is another component that must be working for your car to keep running. Since the alternator is responsible for recharging your car battery, it is reasonable to say that a working alternator equals a working battery. However, it is the alternator that powers your windshield wipers, headlights and many other electrical features. As such, if your alternator malfunctions, that could mean most of your electrical components won’t work.
