I was not home. Tomas was about an hour early. I had to send my son a text to open the door and hand him the keys to my car. In about an hour Tomas called me and gave me the news that the new alternator had been installed and the car was fixed. Effortless...

Patrick is awesome. He used to work for Nissan, so my Xterra was familiar territory for him. He took the time to inspect the car for other possible issues that might have caused problems with the charging system but was able to narrow it down to the alternator. Most shops wouldn't do that, let alone let you stand there and witness the repair. Once the alternator was replaced, the battery voltage went back to normal readings and those pesky warning lights magically vanished! Highly recommended, thanks again Patrick!

Took a chance with ( Your mechanic ) and found Chris and the people I spoke to on the phone to be very nice and helpful. I would recommend ( your mechanic ) and Chris to work on your car. I have some auto mechanic background. So I know what to do to troubleshoot the cars. So I knew what my wifes van needed. Chris did a once over to check the van before he got started. (As a good, reasonable mechanic should do.) Came to the same conclusion and did the work. :-D Works good. I had a question regarding the re-manufactured alternator. But they warranty parts and labor for 12 months or 12 thousand miles. they get the O Reilly parts. They have ( Life time ) I just need to get the order form. Thank you My mechanic. :-) Gustavo Roseville CA

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.
