Starters vs Alternators

A starter that has died may not let your engine turn over and start, while an alternator that isn’t performing properly will often die when the engine is runing or cranking. Your alternator charges your vehicles battery by taking some of the energy generated from the running engine and converting it into electricity which then charges the battery and supplies power to various electrical components in your vehicle. This is why a battery that isn’t performing right can be a sign of a dying alternator.
