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.

The MECHANIC definitely did HIS job, but whoever is handling the PHONES and appointments needs to IMRPOVE. I booked my appointment a week in advance and was only told 18 hours before the appointment that the mechanic was "double booked". Makes NO sense since I booked on the web and the calendar showed me that was an available slot. I got a call requesting I reschedule...the WAIT times on the phobe ARE Ridiculous no MATTER WHAT time you call. The dim-wit that finally answered the phone had NO clue how my appointment got 'double booked'. When Emmett arrived, he explained that all his appointments were cancelled because he was out SICK that day: so what's with the LIES from the call center saying he was 'double booked' when he was out sick?? Asking for a QUOTE was even messy: I did NOT get a response to my quote request back until AFTER about 72 hours and only after I emailed and asked "Where's my quote". Then some dude sent me a quote for the wrong make/model. Good concept, but this places, ASIDE from the mechanic seemed REALLY disorganized.
