Couldn't be happier with Kenneth. He contacted me early to see about bumping up my appointment and worked around my schedule to look over my recent used car purchase. He quickly diagnosed the issue triggering the check engine light, explained what should be done, and even talked me through how to replace the necessary parts just in case i wanted to do it myself. Awesome.

All about Alternator Repair

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.
