Alternator System Service

Kia Alternator Service in Freehold, NJ

One of the most critical components of your Kia is the alternator which is responsible for working in sync with the car’s engine to ensure the car’s battery can successfully recharge with sufficient power after the use of electric draining components such as the radio, power windows or cigarette lighter. Comprised of several electrical processes, the charging system of your vehicle contains a starter motor, a starter solenoid, and a battery. The charging system contains the alternator and a voltage regulator. If any of these components fail, the vehicle will not start.
