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.

I have a couple jobs done by your mechanic, typically I am satisfied. Unfortunately this is the 2nd time Noe has come to work on my car and I will NEVER book with him again. The first time was a simple job, but the fact that he left some garbage after he left under the hood of my car put a bad taste in my mouth. This time he came and couldn't do the job that was booked ( after I called your mechanic and spoke to someone in regards to what job needed to be done most urgent). Him not being able to the job wasn't as frustrating ( as I understand him not wanting to do the wrong job). What I don't appreciate is the manner in which he spoke to me. He made me feel like I was stupid, then to add insult to injury he quoted me 3 times the amount of the job booked and acted as if I wasted his time. I'm not a mechanic, I did not just pull these jobs to be done out of a hat, the fact that he made me feel this way is enough for me to say that I don't ever want to book with him. If Theodore isn't available I will take my business else where and pay the extra money just to not be made to feel like an idiot. I am totally frustrated
