Starters and alternators are very closely related. Here is a quick overview of what each one is, and what it does.
A car starter is a motor that provides electricity to start the car’s engine.
A car alternator provides the electricity needed while your car is running. So the alternator powers the lights, your radio and other electrical devices, including an air conditioning system for example. The alternator recharges the car’s battery when driving.

When a starter motor fails, it can sometimes begin as an intermittent fault indicated by an audible clicking sound, or in other cases it may sound like you have a flat battery even though you have a new or fully charged battery.
