This is my first experience with YourMechanic.com. Although I realize that it all depends on the mechanic that actually comes to your place, I was very lucky. Christopher arrived on time (on a Sunday morning!) and immediately proceeded to change my dead alternator. He was friendly, professional and gave me a lot of infos on what he was doing and on the general condition of my car. Couple that with the fact that I saved roughly around 200$ compared to a car shop and it is not hard to see why I am enthusiastic about this service and about Christopher. See you next time!

Very impressed with Steven. I am updated when he is on his way, he is very nice and respectful upon arrival and while working on my vehicle. He gave me an estimate of how long it would take and the job was done within that timeframe. After repair completed, Steven explained what was done and showed me the part that was defective. Very happy that I got my vacuuming done instead of sitting at a dealership!

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.
