Alternator Repair Service

How does an alternator help your car run?

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

Before repairing the alternator:

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.

Steps when replacing an alternator:

  • 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 for alternator replacements:

Ask your mechanic to inspect the condition of the charging system during every major service. The 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.

Why repairing your alternator is important:

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.

Torrieanto "Trey" did an excellent job on our VW Beetle Alternator. He was very professional and explained in detail all the questions we asked. He also provided recommendations for preventative maintenance. Highly recommend!

Keith was super helpful and flexible. We came back twice and was quick to call when we ran into a problem. Even came to fix my car while I was graduating so I didn’t have to worry about it. I will definitely be booking him in the future.

Jimmy arrived ten minutes early to the appointment time and exited his car with the biggest and friendliest smile. With this being my first time using a service like this, I was leery and hesitant, but our initial conversation made me feel good. He expeditiously confirmed the problem and completed the work in less time than was suggested at the time of my appointment. We discussed other work that needs to be done and price range for the work. I am thoroughly pleased with his demeanor and work. I will be calling on his services again next month.

Carlos was very knowledgeable and did the job right on schedule. One item needs clarification; If your company recommends you replace something and it turns out that it does not need replacement. You should not replace it just because you erroneously recommended it. and if you do, you need to reimburse customer for your error. I think Carlos was doing what he was instructed to do thus not sure how to avoid your "wrong" recommendation or keep a job from getting done/installed unnecessarily.
