I was reading your article on the alternator. What I don't understand is if the vehicle is being operated by the alternator, how will the battery die if there is an alternator malfunction? The battery is designed to hold power. So even if it has a partial charge, won't the battery hold it? Now that's with the engine off. But at the same time, How is the battery powering the vehicle if only the alternator is designed to power it?
