He seems professional. I paid for the lights to be addressed and they are all still on including a low engine oil light. He said he would return to check it out further after his next appointment but I did not hear back from him. I was told by BMW that the power steering fluid needs to be drained, flushed and refilled. He sucked it out with a hose twice and this will not ensure that the oil that was accidentally placed in there would be completely removed. I am no mechanic but I am going off of what BMW told me. I wanted to get a lot more work done. I want all the lights to be addressed and fixed so I started with the check engine lights to be looked at and not just reset. I want everything to be fixed. Thank you

All about Alternator Replacement

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.
