Alternator Repair and Service in Baltimore
Located near the front of your car's engine, the alternator helps to power your vehicle and get it moving. To do this, it uses mechanical energy to generate electricity which in turn recharges the battery. This helps the battery power on the vehicle and its electric components such as interior and exterior lights, radio, entertainment console, power locks and windows, and more.
