Noticing dim headlights, dead batteries, and less airflow from the air conditioner? Unfortunately, these are symptoms of a failing alternator. When an alternator fails the engine fails to power accessories like pumps, the air conditioner, and cabin features because nothing is converting mechanical energy into electrical energy. This crucial role of the alternator is essential and your engine will stall, misfire, overheat, and run poorly without one. The good news? AutoZone has plenty of 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee alternator replacements.
