Your battery helps to start your Volkswagen, but it doesn't have enough power to do it alone. The alternator is a crucial part of your ignition system that recycles power and makes sure all other electrical components are up and running. It works to recycle battery power, which ensures your engine is able to run efficiently throughout the day. It's important to get a replacement alternator when it starts to cause problems or when it wears out completely. There are several warning signs that your alternator might be wearing out. You might find that electrical accessories in your vehicle are operating slower than they normally do. These can be things like your power seats or windows. Your radio also might start to have issues running. The failure of your alternator can also cause problems with your lighting. Interior dashboard lights and headlights can be affected and start to flicker or dim as the result of a weak alternator. If you find your battery is dying often, it could be your alternator and not actually the battery that is experiencing an issue. Some cars are also equipped with alternator warning lights that come on if electrical problems are sensed. You can find OEM VW alternators for sale here at VW Car Part.
