The job of the alternator in your Toyota vehicle is to charge the battery and power the electrical system. This happens when your engine is running. An alternator is a generator of electric power in a vehicle and is a major component of your vehicle's charging system. All vehicles except for some hybrids have an alternator. When your engine is running, the alternator charges the battery and gives it extra electrical power for the vehicle electrical systems. The most common symptom of a problem with your alternator is a battery shaped warning light. Normally the light comes on with ignition but disappears as soon as the engine is started. If it stays on, there might be a problem with the system. Other symptoms of potential problems might include dim lights, odd noises, electrical issues, engine stalling or a dead battery. Fluid leaks or tight belts can cause damage to the alternator bearings, causing premature wearing. It is important to check for these things to keep your alternator running smoothly. In addition to checking belts and hoses it is important to replace your alternator and its parts with quality OEM Toyota parts. These parts set a standard.
