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.

Tinashe is an okay guy and mistakes happen. The alternator supplied by yourmechanic on the first day was under powered compared to the unit that was pulled out and faulty. I caught this before Tinashe installed the part. The proper alternator usually costs double than the one provided but their part supplier charged them three times, again compared to local suppliers, who may have sourced the part but was part of the yourmechanic eco-chain. As part of practice in the parts industry, Tinashe wanted to take the damaged part back, which I declined because I paid a third more than I should have and returning the part would be the icing on their cake. Again Tinashe is an okay guy. We both called customer service who did not pick up. It did that three days to get this done. Day 1 was canceled by another mechanic, due to a family emergency, Tinashe was provided with the wrong part for day 2 and the install was complete on day 3. I would not recommend Your Mechanic to others in the future.

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!
