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.

Trung
7 years of experience
Trung called and arrived a bit earlier which I told him he could do that since I'm already back in my location. He took care of it like a pro and fast. I found out he has to drive from quite a distance away to my location which make me feel bad. My Mercedes warning light was all reset after the oil change and everything is back to normal. Found a minor leak in trans axle. Awesome job Trung. Keep up the good work.

Jeff

Jeff changed my oil pretty quickly even though my Mercedes is a bit of a hassle to deal with. Additionally, he helped me figure out that the reason my car wasn't changing gears is most likely because it does not have enough transmission fluid. On top of that, he was very friendly and provided me with awesome customer service- and now I know exactly what I need to get services to get my car back in action!

Allen was early and took extra steps to make sure everything was done correctly. He even followed up the next day to confirm all was still good with the parts he installed! Will definitely work with Allen again if he has the time.
