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.

Peter

Peter was great! I have been to two mechanics before and they had no idea what was wrong with my car. They claim they fixed it and I was still having the same issue. First appointment with Peter he came and inspect explained to my what he believe it was. Made a second appointment to change all spark plugs, he wast thorough and fast. Explained to me exactly what is wrong with the car and how he fixed it. He knows what he is talking about. I'll definitely be willing to use his services again!

Enrique
16 years of experience
I'm certain I couldn't have had a better first experience with Your Mechanic. Enrique came out to diagnose my vehicle's starting issue and because of his professionalism, knowledge and personality he earned my business. He proceeded to not only repair my problem, but also install a new set of rotors and pads on my wife's Range Rover Evoque, as well, all in the same day! After witnessing his hard work ethic, and perseverance he also earned my respect and trust. I would highly recommend Enrique to anyone considering Your Mechanic for repair services.
