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.

Somewhat disappointed! The tech was late, however he did call, when he arrived he never performed " the 150 point" inspection as advertised. perhaps he was spending more time caring for his children than thinking about the repair? Unless you are an auto tech and 100 percent sure what your vehicle problem is, don't use this service. They replace parts and never checked my car for any other possible issues that could have created my malfunction. As stated I was somewhat embarrassed that my auto tech showed up at my office in his personal vehicle with two children to care for. On the positive side he seemed to know his way around a vehicle and replaced my alternator without an issue. So far the vehicle is running well but it's only been a day. I feel as if I overpaid for the service received or should I say didn't received.
