The function of an alternator??? I believe that it's function is to charge the car's battery... But then again, I'm not a mechanic so I'm not 100% sure.
How does it work??? I would assume that it uses the kenetic energy from the car motor to turn a turbine located in the alternator, and the resulting electrical flow would be chanenlled into the car battery... Again, I'm not a mechanic so I'm not 100% sure.
You're correct, that was off-topic... I'm curious as to why you potsed that questiom on this particular thread
