Joshua

Joshua was great!!!! Hecalled me the morning of the appointment and said he was done with his previous appointment early and of it was ok to come early. He ended up finishing everything before our original appointment time. Not only did he get the job down earlier than expected he got it done for significantly less than our original estimate. He was extremely helpful and professional

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.
