2012 Kia Optima Alternator

Do you notice your car's starter cranking more slowly than normal, or does the battery light illuminate when idling? These could indicate an issue with your 2012 Kia Optima alternator. If it fails to generate sufficient current to power your car's systems and recharge the battery, your vehicle may become unreliable for both short and long drives. Luckily, the repair is simple and can prevent future headaches. At AutoZone, find alternators from recognized brands like Duralast to restore your vehicle's electrical performance.

Multiple issues can lead to subpar performance from your alternator like bearing wear, worn brushes, diode issues, and burnt wiring. And if you accidentally jump-start your battery backwards, the reversed polarity can cause an immediate failure inside. When it's time to replace it, choose an alternator that is designed to fit and connect like the factory alternator to save yourself time and hassle, and it's typically a 110-amp assembly. Can't narrow it down to one option? AutoZone provides new and remanufactured alternators and friendly staff to assist you.

At AutoZone, your 2012 Kia Optima alternator replacement is never far away. And when you're already out and about, collect your online order from your local store with Free Same Day Pickup.
