Maxwell was extremely knowledgeable about everything and knew how to explain everything very clearly. I will definitely be booking him in the future for any work I need done on my car. Arrived on time and took his time making sure everything he was doing was done properly, something I'm sure most everyone on YourMechanic would appreciate. Perfect service thank you.

All about Alternator Repair

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.
