Your vehicle comes equipped with a starting system. This system includes the battery, starter, and alternator. The alternator's main function is to keep the battery charged when the vehicle is running. In addition, it also keeps electrical components, such as headlights and windshield wipers, functioning. If you notice a smell that is similar to burning rubber or a high-pitched sound coming from the engine, your alternator may need to be inspected.
