When your vehicle's electrical system fails, the culprit is either the battery or the alternator, so how do you tell the difference? You'll know it's the alternator when the battery dies frequently and accessories malfunction even when the engine is running. Failing to address a bad alternator will result in several problems that range from flickering headlights to your engine misfiring and the battery light on. The good news is that AutoZone has the 2006 Acura MDX alternator replacement you need to get the job done right.
2006 Acura MDX alternators are durable components and last for 80,000 to 150,000 miles depending on how you drive and the load on the engine. Adding electrical accessories to your vehicle will reduce the alternator's lifespan and driving hard will do the same. Alternators may also deteriorate over time, even if you don't drive often. Expect an alternator to last for seven to ten years if you drive a vehicle with low miles. And when it comes time to replace it, choose one with the same amperage as your old one.
When you need a new alternator for your 2006 Acura MDX, AutoZone is the best place to shop. You'll find the best alternators from brands like Duralast Gold, and getting your new part is a breeze with convenient options like Free Next Day Delivery on eligible orders.
