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.

Excellent service. Arrived right on time. Spoke to me briefly about the car, then got to work. Was done ahead of time, and walked me through the post servicing tests. Great attitude, wonderful service, best value.

Theodore

My car broke down on the side of the road and I didn't have time to deal with it myself. I had it towed to my house and found the your mechanic.com website and decided to give them a try. Theodore did a great job replacing the alternator on my 2006 Honda Odyssey. He clearly knows what he is doing, was professional and willing to explain what he was doing and worked beyond the time allotted for the job to see it completed. He honored the price that the website quoted me at even though it took him longer to complete it than quoted (the site misquoted how long it would take for the job). I will definitely use this service again and would happily have Theodore work on my vehicles.

Casey was professional, friendly & competent. He explained the entire process and described what he was doing throughout the service. He would've probably finished quicker if I hadn't been chatting with him the whole time. Would recommend again.

Jose

Jose, (I almost feel like I should call him "my mechanic" because after all he came to my house and worked on my car exclusively until the job was done) - was great! He arrived on time, listened to what I was telling him about the diagnostics I had already accomplished and responded appropriately to my questions. He got right to work and finished installing the new alternator very quickly. Afterward he tested everything and gave me some good advice as well as answered some additional questions I had. Overall I was very impressed with Jose and the yourmechanic service.
