Some of the most common alternator problems are remarkably simple to troubleshoot if you have the right equipment. Problems like squealing and grinding noises, low voltage outputs, and starting or dying issues can often be investigated with relatively basic tools. Of course, knowing exactly what to look for is vital. A lot of common alternator problems actually turn out to be caused by issues like bad batteries, loose serpentine belts, and poor grounds, which is why it’s so important to follow a thorough troubleshooting procedure.
