The alternator on your vehicle is responsible for a lot. It helps to maintain the power your battery has so it's able to run all day. It also has the job of powering your electrical systems. All this takes place while your vehicle is running. The alternator is made up of many parts. Over time, those parts wear out so eventually your alternator will need replacing. One sign of a worn out alternator is a dead battery - so if your battery goes out, it is a good idea to have your alternator checked as well. While it may simply be a dead battery, it could be a deeper issue with your alternator that you need to have addressed. Other electrical systems may begin to have issues as well if your alternator is wearing out. Your power windows might struggle to function or your radio can have issues powering up and running smoothly. You could also start to hear loud squealing noises, which might indicate an issue with your serpentine belt that has affected your alternator. Whatever the case, make sure you use an OEM alternator in your Kia when making a replacement. We sell a range of them here for many makes and models.
