Recently we replaced the Alternator on a Daihatsu Sirion.
If your alternator needs replacing the car may present with one of the following signs:
- Warning light on dash (alternator, engine, battery…)
- Dead Battery
- Hard to Start
- Headlights are dim
- Grinding or Whining sounds
If your car is presenting with any of the above symptoms we recommend you get it checked out by an Auto Electrician as soon as possible. If the alternator is damaged and isn’t fixed or replaced it can destroy your battery. Under certain circumstances in modern cars with computer controlled alternators, damage can be done to the electronics if your alternator is not functioning correctly.
