A high-quality alternator is a necessary part of the machinery under the hood of your car. As your Lexus' battery reserve depletes, the alternator is used to charge it, as well as to charge electrical systems on the car while it's running. It's a very clever system and it is important that it is fully functional. Modern vehicles will usually illuminate the warning light on the dashboard when the alternator begins to deteriorate, with other symptoms being related to electrical components: Flickering and weak headlamps, noises from the engine bay, stereo system or dashboard, and as the final symptoms unresponsive dashboard, with all functionality shut down or showing incorrect information. Modern vehicles will prevent the car from reaching this state and would force the driver to pull over and turn the vehicle off, and while this makes it safer, it also leaves you stranded on the side of the road waiting for a tow truck. Lastly, alternator issues can seriously deteriorate your battery. If the battery drains frequently, it permanently reduces its power and lifespan. Replacing it with an OEM part is your best bet, as it will serve you for a long time and keep the car running. Lexus of West Kendall has all the factory alternators and accompanying components you'd need for a swap, so shop today and get back on the road!
