Alternator Repair Service & Cost

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. 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.

The alternator went out on my car and was replaced by Your Mechanic, then within about a week it went out again. (I have since heard that it is not all that uncommon for an alternator to go out shortly after being replaced). Your Mechanic fully honored the warranty, and Michael came out and replaced it in a very timely manner, at no charge. I was also not charged for the inspection performed to be sure that the problem was indeed the alternator. Michael arrived on time, was professional, friendly and courteous and installed a new alternator. My car is now running just fine. I would highly recommend Michael and Your Mechanic.

Duane is very professional and an exceptional mechanic. Replaced the alternator on my 03 Mazda6 in a couple hours (which was no easy fix, I tried). Highly reccommend Yourmechanic, and specifically Duane.
