Arrived earlier than expected arrival time. Was very professional and fast. Pointed out additional issues I had noticed personally, with a thorough explanation as to why they were happening. Saved me an additional $40 by removing an add-on service I ended up not needing. Great, efficient, honest service. Saved $200 in total compared to the 3 local shops I had contacted prior to finding YourMechanic.

If I could give Justin 100 stars I would. He made sure that the problem with my car was fixed and checked everything he could confident the battery light did not come back on. I would highly recommend Justin besides being a great mechanic he is a really nice person. Thank you Justin!

I am more than happy with the service provided by Whitney and would recommend him to everyone. He replaced the alternator on my 2004 Hyundai Sonata which is a bit more difficult than your typical alternator replacement. While doing the work he commented on his observations of the general condition of the car and made recommendations. He was very friendly and courteous and instilled confidence in me as to regards to his skills and workmanship. I would 100% recommend Whitney to all my friends.

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.
