Alternator Repair Service

How does an alternator help your car run?

The alternator is the component that charges the battery in your car. When you use electrical components in your car (stereo, lights, etc.), the battery loses power. The alternator recharges the battery, replenishing the lost battery power. The alternator is located in the engine compartment. If the alternator is not working properly, your car will only stay running for as long as the battery has power stored. Once the battery loses power, your car will not start. Normally, a malfunctioning alternator will turn on the battery warning light or will have a low volt gauge reading.

Alternator

Before repairing the alternator:

The mechanic should check the entire charging system before installing a new alternator, including checking battery cables for corrosion and the condition of the battery.

Steps when replacing an alternator:

  • Inspect entire charging system (battery, cables, alternator).
  • Inspect the drive belts.
  • Test alternator output.
  • Remove and replace alternator if found to be faulty.
  • Re-test alternator output.

Our recommendation for alternator replacements:

Ask your mechanic to inspect the condition of the charging system during every major service. The mechanic should also clean and tighten the battery cables during every major service.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Alternator?

  • Dead battery or battery will not hold a charge.
  • Dim lights.
  • Battery warning light is on.

Why repairing your alternator is important:

Your alternator charges your battery, which powers the electronics in your vehicle, such as the radio and the air conditioning. The battery is also needed to turn on your vehicle. A malfunctioning alternator will not charge your car’s battery, and your vehicle will eventually run out of battery life and not be able to start.

Acura TLX L4-2.4L - Car is not starting - Irvine, California
Manuel showed up super timely and figured out the issue (dead battery) really quickly. He also fixed my windshield wiper tubes (bitten through by rats) in like 2 mins. He ran out to get a new battery and was back in a jiffy with it fixed in less than an hour. Thanks so much Manuel!

Acura TLX V6-3.5L - Car is not starting - Glen Allen, Virginia
Patrick arrived early to the appointment which was great, saved me time. He diagnosed the issue, showed me that the battery was only registering 9 volts. He had a replacement battery already with him which he exchanged with the old one and the car started right up. This as a great service and the price was reasonable considering they come to your home. This was the first time I used your service and it was a pleasure doing business with you.
