An important component under the hood of your Subaru is the alternator. It's responsible for converting energy created by the engine into usable electricity for your car's air conditioning, stereo, lights, power seats and windows and more.

So, when your car's electrical components start experiencing problems, the alternator is a great place to start the diagnosis. Common issues caused by a failing alternator include dim or flickering lights, an engine that is difficult or impossible to start and power seats and windows that operate slowly. You might also get a warning light in the dashboard.

Depending on what's gone wrong, we may be able to remove and repair your car's alternator, then put it right back in -- but in many cases, it's easier and more affordable to have a new alternator installed. Stop by the Carr Subaru service center to consult with one of our knowledgeable service advisors. We'll take a close look at your car and determine the best course of action to get it fixed.

How Do I Know the Alternator has Gone Bad on My Car?

If your car's electrical systems have been acting strange, we'll want to test the alternator to see if the alternator is going bad, or if there's a different issue elsewhere in the car causing your electrical woes.

If you're familiar with basic automotive electrical maintenance, and you've got a multimeter handy, you can test the output of the battery in DC volts with the engine at idle. If the output of the battery is less than 13 DC volts, that's a sign that your alternator is too weak to do its job properly, and is ready to be replaced or repaired.

And if all that sounds like gibberish to you, don't worry. Testing the alternator is a piece of cake for our talented technicians. Stop by and let us know what problems you're experiencing. We'll quickly get to the bottom of it and recommend a long-term fix.
