Overall experience is just okay; however, I felt a sense of hustle and hurry in order to move to next (appointment? maybe, i just didn't know). The core work was done; however, like this one, the dashboard indicator lights was not set off while I was told by the technician that it was all done. I knew that it took a while for him to work on the indicator..Anyway, the dashboard light (break wear indicator light) was still not set off which should be done while replacing the pad and sensor. While there maybe other things that I would complain about, I will keep that off the line at this review for this task.

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.
