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.

Lucas is extremely professional and trustworthy. He inspected my car and quickly found the problem. He actually took one of my service request off because I didn't need it. That saved me over $150.00! I am very happy with the communication Lucas maintains. He called me with updates and gave me a piece of mind.

My mechanic shows up an hour late and proceeds to tell me that the job was misquoted and that it would be and additional half hour. Then begins to tell me that the job required taking the radiator out and if I had anti-freeze to put back into the vehicle. After working on the vehicle for an hour trying to get the radiator out he discovered that procedure of the job was not required and I purchased anti-freeze because he did a step that was not required. Upon completion of the job he informed me that the pigtail clip that plugs into the alternator was broken, which I find hard to believe that he wasn't the individual that broke it with his statements and attitude when I was first talking to him when he arrived. Upon completion he informed me that I would need to get that fixed and gave me a full charge for my trip home to which I did not make due to my battery dying. So after charging more than what was quoted I was still left stranded on the side of the road with a broken vehicle.

Showed up early to replace alternator. Took him approx. 30 minutes. Was ecstatic at first until I realized that ian had unscrewed the girl & never screwed it back. The metal part that keeps the hood stick in place was broken off & placed back under the hood. The battery holder wasn't screwed back on & I had to pay for another mechanic to find it under the hood because it was rattling around & making obnoxious noises. Ian never mentioned the broken pieces that he left behind. Never again. Smh.
