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.

Cooper 2017 - Pre-purchase Car Inspection - North Hollywood, CA
He was very responsive. The pre-inspection seemed very detailed and his pictures of the car were very helpful. I purchased the car from CA ( 2000 miles from where I live)sight unseen and I am relying on the help of Your Mechanic and Charles for a good report. The car has not been delivered yet so I have not double checked anything but the report seemed thorough and all of my questions were answered.

Cooper 2006 - Electric Problems - Tampa, FL
When he pulled in in a Mini Cooper to work on my Mini Cooper, I knew things were going to go well. He identified the problem within a few minutes, and had the issue fixed a few minutes later. What more can you ask for?
