I was told the mechanic was a BMW mechanic. All he did was diagnose the problem but was unable to fix because of his lack of experience. This was a waste of our money and we are not happy. We could have gone any place and had code read for less. I was told he was a familiar and capable of repairing BMW cars but he wasnt. I specifically asked for a mechanic that worked on BMW. Our money was wasted. Read my comments on yelp, reddit and other social network sites.

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.
