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.

Turned out good. Tien my mechanic came early, and got straight to the job. After checking the oil from the oil change he did, instead of lying and saying that it's good, he saw it was missing 1 more quart. So he called it in, and picked up the extra quart to finish the job. Did the 50 point inspection, told me the 2 extra fluid were low, and finished everything great. Had a good day after that. Thanks Tien

He is very genuine and not there to socialize. He was very cautious with my car and understood that this particular car is kinda tight to work in. I think he is perfect for my repairs in the future. I definitely am going to check if it's alright to tip him a 20 or something.
