Your car has hundreds of yards of wiring and dozens of electrical sensors, switches, and motors. It's your 2015 Honda Accord alternator that creates the energy to power all of these systems as well as recharge the battery. Your car can't be relied on if the alternator isn't good, and a replacement is often a better solution than a repair. AutoZone carries 2015 Honda Accord alternators and charging system
parts to fit your car as a direct replacement for the factory components.
How Do Alternators Work
Alternators convert mechanical force into electrical energy that your car needs to operate its systems. It's driven by the serpentine belt and spins a set of magnets within a coil to generate an electric field in alternating current which is converted to DC or direct current by the rectifier. This is the type of power your electrical systems need to work, and some of the power generated is stored as a reserve charge in the battery.
Signs of a Bad Alternator
An alternator for 2015 Honda Accord models may last for the car's lifetime or it may only last a few years. Signs that the alternator is failing can include a dead battery, a stalled engine that won't crank over, dim lights, electrical functions that quit, burning smells, or odd rotational noises from under the hood.
How to Replace a 2015 Honda Accord Alternator
You'll find the alternator at the front of the engine bay where the belt turns over the pulleys. Changing it is a relatively basic repair for a DIYer. First, disconnect the battery and remove the serpentine belt. Next, disconnect the wiring connections at the alternator and unbolt it from the bracket or mount. Then install the new one in its place, buttoning up the connections the same way they were on the old alternator before testing it.
