Alternator Repair Service & Cost

What is the Alternator all about?

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

Keep in mind:

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.

How it's done:

  • 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:

Ask your mechanic to inspect the condition of the charging system during every major service. 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.

How important is this service?

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.

Tien

Tien was very courteous and showed up on time. After looking at the car he determined additional parts would be required to do the job. It took a while to get a new quote. Not sure if this was Tien's fault or YourMechanic. The parts recommended were pricey and didn't include everything needed to complete the job (Tien uncovered that another pulley was needed but that wasn't in the new quote). I researched it myself, bought the parts on Amazon, and scheduled a different mechanic to come complete the job. Tien seemed a bit rushed and ready to move on to the next job. I think he'd be great on any job that is super straight forward. But if any troubleshooting is required he doesn't go the extra mile like I've seen from other mechanics to see it through to the end.
