Modern cars are heavily reliant on electricity to keep them going. The engine could keep running by itself, but the moment there is not enough voltage to produce the electrical spark for each piston the engine stop. Additionally, your car has power steering, anti-lock brakes, and possibly a motor room fire management system; all require electrical energy and cease to function once the battery goes dead.
Your car includes a red ignition warning light
This illuminates when you turn on the ignition and goes out after the engine starts. If the light stays on, or seriously when driving, this means that there’s a fault while using the charging system as well as your battery isn’t getting charged. However, it doesn’t always signify the alternator has failed, it can be something more important.
Additionally, the red warning light is just a small LED bulb, in addition to being with another bulb, if it can blow. If it does blow, you will not understand the red warning light and so, if a fault occurs, you’ll not know until you find your battery goes dead. Another fact that you may find surprising could be that the small voltage that flows through for a warning light acts just as one agitator; it tells the alternator to create electricity … READ MORE >>>
