He was early and had it done in 30 min. I was canceled twice yesterday by someone else so this was definitely a plus!! He also helped me figure out what i needed next to keep safe. Thanks again James.
James is great! I needed an alternator replaced. He was very knowledgeable and had the alternator installed in a timely manner. James did not leave until he knew for certain that my vehicle was safe to drive. My truck honestly drives like it’s brand new all thanks to James.

My car couldn't start. After searching online and comparing the symptoms, I believed it was due to a failed alternator that slowly drained the battery. I booked the first available appointment at 1:15pm and I also left a note stating that he could come earlier if he finished his morning job earlier. On the day before the appointment, a friend drove me to AutoZone to have the car battery full charged. On the day of the appointment, I received a text at 11:25am saying he was on his way. He arrived at 11:45am. He asked me who diagnosed the alternator failure. I told him the symptoms and the information I found online. He agreed. It is great that he wanted to make sure the diagnosis was correct first. 50 minutes later, he had the alternator replaced and also gave me a quote for another service needed. Since my car battery was already fully charged, I was able to drive the car right away. He is very knowledgeable, friendly, and answered all my questions. I highly recommend him.

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.
