To provide the electricity needed to keep the battery charged, the alternator and the voltage regulator work in tandem. While the alternator generates the electrical current necessary to charge the battery and power the electrical components as the engine runs, the voltage regulator controls the amount of current the alternator produces. Without voltage regulator, the amount of current produced by the alternator would damage electrical components and the battery. Normally, the alternator and the voltage regulator are reliable components that provide trouble-free service. So, if there is a reduction in current, it is far more likely that the alternator drive belt is to blame rather than a defective alternator or regulator.

Electrical Tip: Because a loose alternator belt can significantly reduce the current output of the alternator and cause the battery to run down, it's recommended to check the belt tension frequently.

Virtually every system in your vehicle is electronically operated and connected in some way to one of the automobile's computers. If one system creates a fault in another, the diagnosis needs to be correct in order to fix the problem the first time.
