Your 2006 Honda Civic alternator supplies electricity to the systems in your car that require it to operate, and it also recharges your car's battery. If you're experiencing strange electrical problems or your car isn't as reliable as you've come to expect, the alternator could be to blame. Rather than repair it, the alternator is most often replaced to correct the problem. AutoZone carries 2006 Honda Civic alternators and charging system
parts to get you up and running again.
What Does an Alternator Do?
Because so many of your car's components require electrical power, your car generates its own electricity. The alternator spins a rotor inside a stator at a high rate to create an electrical field using rotational energy from the crankshaft. The power it generates is either consumed by your car's systems on demand or stored in the battery for future use such as starting your car.
Signs of a Faulty Alternator
Alternators usually last many years or even a car's lifetime, but it's possible for it to quit sooner. If that's the situation, you'll notice symptoms pop up that could include dim or flickering lights, squealing or whining under the hood, a burning smell, odd electrical problems, or a lit battery light. Your car could have a dead battery or stall while you're driving.
How to Replace a 2006 Honda Civic Alternator
The Honda Civic 2006 alternator is well positioned for a fast replacement at the front of the engine compartment. After disconnecting the battery, remove the serpentine belt and unplug the wiring before unbolting the alternator itself. Install the new alternator and adjust the belt tension.
