Automotive Starters & Alternators
Alternators ensure that the vehicle’s battery is continuously charged and can provide the necessary power to electrical devices and systems. Whereas the starter motor provides the motion in the engine to begin ignition – both important roles.
If one of these parts is not working correctly, your car may be hard to start, have rough idling, stall while driving or simply not start at all.
At Natrad, we can help you diagnose any problems with engine starting and advise the best solution. We supply and install a huge range of starter motors and alternators in Australia to suit many types of vehicles.
