Why has my alternator stopped working?
Like all parts under the bonnet of your vehicle, alternators, which are highly sought-after, have a limited life span. Beyond natural wear, some causes accelerate the aging of this major component. Malfunction may be due to a fault in the alternator belt (this belt transmits the rotational movement to the alternator which occurs when the engine is running). If the belt is too loose or too tight, then the alternator will not work properly. If it is too damaged, it can tear completely and will no longer drive the alternator, which will then stop the electrical current. If your battery warning light is lit on your dashboard, it may be that the alternator needs replacing.
