Research on Alternator for Mercedes C230
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class has been a favorite of entry-level luxury sedan buyers for years. More than just a small sedan, the C-Class provides the core strengths of the Mercedes brand in a smaller and less expensive package. The C230 is one of Mercedes' best selling cars. Powered with 150 kW dual overhead cam 24 valve V-6 motor, the engine is teamed with a fully synchronized 6-speed manual transmission with a short-throw shifter over and above a clutch-starter interlock.
An alternator is part of the charging system of the C230 that, by transforming mechanical energy into electrical energy, produces electricity for various devices. Although the battery supplies some electricity, most of the electrical mechanisms within the C230 require the steady stream of power that is generated by the alternator. Gasoline powers the engine to turn the crankshaft, which in turn connects to the alternator, which converts that motion into current whenever the car is running. The resulting electricity operates the cooling fan, headlights, windshield wipers, radio, defogger, and air conditioning. This alternating current is controlled by a voltage regulator to keep the voltage steady.
Even if an alternator dies or malfunctions, the car will run for a while directly off the battery until all its power is depleted, which makes it hard to tell when the device is having problems. You should check to make sure there are no cracked belts before replacing the entire part. A rebuilt alternator can be a reliable, but less expensive, option if it must be repaired.
What are the symptoms of a failing alternator?
When it starts to fail, the alternator can create a domino effect of electrical problems that can ultimately cause a breakdown. If you experience flickering headlights, stalling or strange noises when driving, chances are it's a failing alternator. When the alternator is going bad, other systems that are powered by the alternator may start to act up. These can include the power windows, power locks, dashboard lights, air conditioning, even your car radio. The alternator provides power to the spark plugs that ignite the gasoline in your engine. When the alternator is failing, there might not be enough power in the spark plugs to keep the engine alive, which can cause it to stall for no reason while running, or to have trouble starting. Ignore this symptom, and your car eventually won't start at all. A bad alternator can cause the battery to drain because it's failing to recharge it. If your battery goes dead, have the alternator checked when replacing the battery so it doesn't happen again.
