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.

On Wednesday May 20th, 2015 we hired YourMechanic to come out and diagnose my daughters car because it would not start. Ben contacted us and said he believed my daughter had water in her fuel and he recommended she fill up her car with high quality gas and an additive to clean out the system. Ben followed my daughter to a gas station to help her with this. Ben instructed my daughter to drive around for a little while with the new fuel and additive to "clean out" the system. Within five (5) minutes of my daughter driving around, her car died and would not start again. We contacted Ben directly who informed us he would be back shortly to help her....He never showed up. My daughter sat in the Houston sun broke down for over 2 hours before having her car towed back to the house based on Ben stating he would return. Furthermore, Ben will not return phone calls regarding this matter. In addition, I have contacted YourMechanic and left message after message regarding this matter with no phone calls in return until Friday, May 22nd, 2015. The gentleman I talked to said he needed to research some things and he would call me back in ten (10) minutes. I am still waiting for that phone call back....It is now May 25, 2015. I would appreciate a phone call back regarding this matter by someone who has the ability to do what they say they are going to do.

My experiance with Pete was great. He explained in detail what was wrong with my VW Bettle on the phone before he came out. Then when he got to my condo he again went over the service he was doing. personality and very easy to talk to. We had a situation where I was paying with cash plus credit card not knowing that cash isnt the form of payment they prefere.He took care of it in a timely manner. I would use Pete anytime and so should you . Great guy very knowleable.
