To supply the electrical demands of its tech-heavy components, sensors, and motors, the 2009 Toyota Camry generates a constant flow of electricity. If systems are glitchy or your car seems to lose power, it could be a problem with the alternator. More often than not, it's easier and more dependable to replace it rather than repair it, and AutoZone carries 2009 Toyota Camry alternators and charging system parts for a just-right fit.
The 2009 Camry alternator generates electricity by converting the engine's rotational force into electrical energy. A magnetic rotor spins within a stator to create an electrical field that can either be stored in the battery or consumed immediately. It's delivered to electrical parts like the radio, fuel injection system, and power windows on demand through a network of wires, switches, computers, and sensors.

If it fails to maintain electrical supply, your car could stall and the battery won't recharge.
