The original alternator in your Toyota is a key component when it comes to running the various electrical systems. Sure, your ignition is what delivers the initial voltage from the battery to the spark plugs, but once your engine has started the alternator is the part that provides most of the electricity. Most of the time, you never even think about it while it's doing its job. It's a whole different story when it starts to fail. Sometimes you get lucky, and a warning light flashes on your dashboard. More often, you'll have to interpret clues that your factory alternator is going bad.
You Can Rely on a Toyota Alternator
Since your alternator powers everything from your windows to your stereo, the signs that your alternator is failing may start with those. Maybe your windows suddenly won't roll down. Perhaps your sound system goes silent. A common indication is flickering headlights. What you should know is that a bad alternator will drain your battery in no time at all. You should be able to drive for a very short distance, but eventually your car, truck, or SUV is going to stop running. Most alternators have a lifespan of between 60,00 and 150,000 miles, but high-quality Toyota models are usually closer to the top end of that range. With that in mind, it only makes sense to replace your failing alternator with another genuine factory Toyota alternator. It's guaranteed to fit your model, and you know you can trust its performance. You can find yours, along with any new belts you may need, in our online auto parts department. Buy now and save!
