Question about 1999 Toyota Corolla
If alternator is bad what kind problems
i have to my car
is likely to blame if anything electrical slows or lights dim while you
If your battery frequently discharges, your alternator likely needs to be replaced.
If your alternator light comes on or flickers when you start your car, you should have your vehicle inspected as soon as you can.
If your vehicle does not start, your alternator could be to blame. The problem could also be your battery, so check its charge.
A clanging or rattling sound might be an indicator of something gone wrong with the alternator belt or its other parts.
Before paying money for a new alternator (which I was about to do today), be sure to have the alternator tested. As many people suggest, Auto Zone, and other parts suppliers, will test it for free. You may have bad connections into your alternator...make sure they are secure and free of corrosion. You might also simply need to tighten the alternator belt. A loose belt will also prevent the alternator from charging the battery.
