My car wouldn't start so i called roadside assistance. He was able to start the car and I was able to drive it. He thought it was the starter, but said it should work until I had time to get it replaced..The next day the car wouldn't start. I contacted your service and made arrangements for a mechanic to come to my house. After inspecting the car, he advised it was the alternator and battery. Since I had advised I needed a starter, he did not have the parts. He found the parts and went to get them. After returning, he discovered they had given him the wrong battery. He had to go back to the store to exchange it. He never complained about the additional time it took and left my house 3 hrs. later...well into the evening. I was so grateful for all of the time he took to make sure I had a car that worked. I highly recommend his service! He went above and beyond and had a great attitude. Thank you, Jose!

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.
