In any vehicle, the electrical system supports the comfort and convenience features such as onboard computer, radio system, headlights, wiper, power window and many more. The proper functioning of this entire system is done by the battery and the alternator. The continuous charging of the battery is done by the alternator and it is connected with an alternator belt to the engine. If the alternator stops functioning, this entire system will stop, as it is the part which delivers electrical power from the engine to the battery. The battery will gradually run out of voltage and all the electrical operations of your Mazda car will cease.
When your Mazda alternator system will start failing, the lights in your Mazda car will become dim and the sound of your horn will also not be so much loud. The battery warning lights on your dashboard may also indicate that it is not getting charge and getting low. From these factors, you can know that the alternator is not functioning well and you must take immediate measures to replace it.
The Mazda alternator is a small generator as it produces the alternative current needed by the battery. There is a small thing named rectifier within the alternator, which plays an active role in changing the current to direct current and the battery gets charged up. If the rectifier burns out, the entire alternator needs to be replaced.
This thing may happen if certain parts of the alternator system get damaged. If you can see that the problem is coming from the alternator belt, there is no need to change the whole assembled alternator system. The system will start functioning fine if the belt is replaced. But if the other parts like the stator, rotor, diode packs or the voltage regulator get damaged, you will have no alternative but to replace the entire alternator assembly.
According to the model of the Mazda car, you will have to decide which alternator will fit into your model. The price of the alternator will vary accordingly. For Mazda3000 1998-2005 manufactured model, the price of the alternator will be around $173. The strength of the alternator will vary from 95 to 100 watts. The alternator is internally regulated and the manufacturer is giving a two years warranty on the product.
