Question: I see a 185 amp alternator that im interested in for my 2005 Accord. Although i would like to have a higher amp alternator, is it possible for a high amp alternator to fry your car starter, etc.
Answer: Alterntors work on demand. Starters only draw current from the battery during the crank cycle. The alternator is not activated during the crank cycle. But just like anything that draws current, it doesn't draw more than needed to perform its function. The starter might draw 250 Amps to crank the engine. But the battery might be storing 1000 Amps. The starter will not draw 1000 Amps just because it is available. It will only draw what is needed. Same as all electronics
TIP: When shopping at Ebay or Amazon or other large marketplace where many sellers and businesses converge to sell their stuff, look for an online store for the same seller for the best deal. The cost of selling on the 'Other' Marketplaces is much greater for sellers than their own online store. We (and many others) offer our best deals at maniacelectricmotors.com.
