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.

Chris was very conscientious about arriving on time, he ran into some traffic but kept me informed on his arrival time. The car of course started when he got there, but he check under the hood and explained the chip in the key which was probably the problem. He is going to try and get me a credit since the car started and gave me a coupon discount. I was thinking about why a mechanic can't come to the car as I prepared to call AAA for a tow when I found this web sight. I think it's a great idea and will use again in the future.

First off let me thank Danny for doing such a great job. My clutch feels like butter now (this is a good thing). He called me before the appointment to confirm, let me know of traffic he hit along the way, clarified what I needed to be worked on, and completed the job. Danny is a great asset to YourMechanic!
