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.

I have never used a "mobile" mechanic. Now I'm kicking myself for ever taking my vehicles to a shop. My wife and I were quoted outrageous amounts of money to replace the alternator on her 2004 Mercedes. I got the quote online and was very surprised but still a bit skeptical. I then received an email telling me about Breck. The morning of the service I received a text alert letting me know that he was in route. I had to go into work so my wife dealt with Breck. She was immediately at ease with his professionalism and his demeanor. He did not try to upsell but did provide a quote for recommended services. He completed the repair in less than an hour. You can tell he loves his job and is very good at what he does. Thank you so much for the top notch service. We will continue to use Breck going forward. All of our friends will hear this as well.

David worked hard to install the alternator on my Mercedes. It was a tough job because of the location of the part, but he did a great job and my car runs great. I will definitely use this service again and request David's service. Thank you!
