The alternator in your vehicle is what helps to recycle power and recharge electrical components. It powers everything from the headlights and radio, to the computer controlling the engine. Late-model vehicles are operated by computers in various locations in the vehicle. These computers must receive the proper voltage to operate normally. A failing alternator can cause symptoms ranging from a dead battery, to stalling, to electrical component such as the power windows to stop working.
