Alternator Repair Service

How does an alternator help your car run?

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

Before repairing the alternator:

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.

Steps when replacing an alternator:

  • 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 for alternator replacements:

Ask your mechanic to inspect the condition of the charging system during every major service. The 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.

Why repairing your alternator is important:

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.

Ford E-250 Econoline - Smoke from engine or exhaust - Charlotte, North Carolina
This was my first time using yourmechanic.com. I have an older model conversion van which can’t be serviced in most places so it is hard for me to even get an oil change without going across town. Plus, it’s so old & rickety looking, I always fear that I’m easy pickings for a con mechanic. Brent showed up on time and recognized things about this vehicle that only an experienced mechanic would know. He was honest about me NOT needing repairs at the time & made recommendations on what to consider having done in another 6 months. Now 6 mos later, I intend to follow up and book with Brett again. I wanted to request him to work on my daughter’s car while she was briefly in town but alas he was unavailable. No worries tho, I was able to arrange an appointment with another mechanic with 20 yrs experience thru this website. If all goes well, I’ll have 2 experienced mechanics I can rely on. My only criticism is that motorcycle repair services are not offered by yourmechanic.com I’d also like to see yourmechanic.com do NC inspections. Hopefully they can work on that!
