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.

Volvo V60 L4-2.0L Turbo - Wheel Bearings Replacement (Driver Side Front, Passenger Side Front) - Houston, Texas
Honestly, Ben brought some serious joy to my day! It has been at least 18 months since I last used YourMechanic, as I realized I can do practically everything myself (thank you Youtube), but as work has gotten more and more hectic, I find myself with substantially less time and ability to commit a few hours on the weekend (what is a weekend anymore haha) to fixing my car. Ben was 5 minutes early, and even reached out the day before to introduce himself, confirm I had the necessary parts, and make sure he brought the correct equipment to work on my Volvo. Volvo quotes me $900, Ben gets it done for $200. He had a smile on his face the whole time and is truly a genuine man. I have some heavy piece of mind knowing I took care of the vehicle that has treated me like a king for the last 3 years, and I owe it to Ben!!
