Signs of starting problems with your car could mean there may be problems developing in its auto electrical system. Unless you are a trained mechanic, it may be hard to know if the problem is associated with the starter, alternator, or battery. Don’t wait too long before scheduling a test of the various components of the auto electrical system to determine the cause of your problem. You may end up with a car that refuses to start if you ignore the warning signs.

The first things you should rule out before having any form of repair work done are the battery and starter, which narrows the cause of starting problems down to a failing alternator. Because the alternator is a key component in the auto electrical system, when it starts to fail, it has an impact on other components of your vehicle, which can result in an urgent auto electrical repair.

So what are the signs of an alternator going out?

  1. The first indicator of a failing alternator is when the dash warning light ("ALT" or "GEN") comes on.
  2. The lights are dimmer than usual.
  3. Accessories such as power windows, power locks, dashboard lights, air conditioning, radio, GPS, etc., will start to act up.
  4. Bearings in the engine may fail, creating unusual rattles.
  5. There might not be enough power in the spark plugs to start the engine, or to keep the engine alive, causing it to stall while running.
  6. The battery will drain because it is not receiving a charge from the alternator.

Remember: If you are having starting problems, and before replacing the starter of battery, be sure to check out the alternator to make sure it is sending a charge to the battery.
