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.

Tom

I believed I found an honest mechanic. Tom was schedule for full tune up for my car. But when he check and test the car he told me that I don't need to change the spark plug. If you go to other mechanic they don't tell you that, they just change the spark plug to get your money even they know the spark plug still good. But Tom didn't, instead he told me what need to be fix in my car. Wow this days it's hard to find a honest mechanic like Tom. Tom will be my personal mechanic from now on. I save $214.00 due to honest mechanic like Tom.

Dwight

My First time using "YourMechanic" and I was not sure what to expect. I was more than satisfied with the experience. I had a serious issue with my 2006 Mazda tribute, but didn't know how serious. The car is not safe to drive and I was looking at Nearly $100 Rnd trip to get it to a mechanic at a shop to be diagnosed. Then i was concerned about being a hostage to that shop. Dwight was incredible...knowledgeable (extremely), personable, professional...all the superlatives. The bottom line was that my car needs a new engine, which is not within the scope of the work "YourMechanic" does. No worries, Dwight made some recommendations and offered to look into some reputable shops that do this type of work. It wasn't good news by any means, but it was credible and not as bad as I had feared. Great job Dwight! It was a pleasure meeting you today.
