Peter was a little late he said because of construction. I have an appointment to get the Alarm removed as he suggested and I will take the battery back but until then I won't know if this will solve the problem.

Theodore

Theodore worked on my car a couple months back. I scheduled something else (I thought I knew what was wrong with it), and when he got to my place instead of just taking my money, he advised me to get it inspected which I did. Come to find out I was wrong, and he fixed the issue and saved me money. That's when I became a long time customer. As long as Theodore is around I will continue to get all my services through Your Mechanic.

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.
