Symptoms of Alternator Failure
Some cars have a built-in warning light specifically for the alternator. In others, the battery light will come on (since any alternator problems will affect the battery). Flickering or dim headlights and electric features are also a signal of alternator failure. Specifically for alternators, noises like whining or rattling may signal a loose or worn belt. Sometimes, it can be hard to tell the difference between alternator and battery problems due to their similarities.
Alternator vs. Battery Trouble
Since the alternator powers the battery, it can be hard to determine which one is causing the lack of power in your car. You can test this by recharging the battery and starting the car. If its electrical system is unresponsive after a short time, the battery is the likely culprit. However, if you can’t start your car even after charging the battery, the alternator is probably the problem.
