Start your cars engine. Did you notice that little red battery symbol come on briefly? It’s a warning symbol which, if it were to stay on, would indicate there’s a problem with the alternator. If the alternator has still got some life in it, the light may flicker or, if you make it work harder by turning on additional lights, the air con and the wipers, it may stay on. As the alternator really begins to pack up, those same systems may not function properly or stop working altogether. Since so many things are powered by electricity, you’d be surprised what can stop working, including vital instruments. However, it’s likely things will start failing in a pre-determined sequence with comfort features such as heated seats being the first to stop and the headlights, the last.
