I have a 2006 Honda Element that needed alternator replacement. I had the parts and started the repair but couldn't get the work done in time to be ready for work by myself. My husband and I both had critical work deadlines and obligations to fulfill and didn't want to call a tow truck for an alternator replacement. So we turned to mobile mechanics, a new venture for me since I usually try to take my car to the dealer. I am SOLD, and I may never take my car to a dealership again. Ben came by earlier than the appointment time, was VERY responsive to texts, and his work was fast and very high quality. This man is clearly a highly skilled professional. Ben went above and beyond, and the service he provided was so excellent that I would consider calling him INSTEAD of going to a dealership with my 2006 Honda Element. After the alternator replacement, we noticed the A/C was not working, and Ben came out AGAIN the same day after fixing and noted that something got jostled. Within a matter of minutes he had the car fixed up with new alternator and A/C running. So in only ~1.5 hours, this man came to my house twice, replaced my alternator, did a thorough vehicle inspection (now on the website), and made sure the A/C worked. This man is honest, hardworking, and efficient. Can't say enough good things!
All I can say was excellent! Definitely will use him again in the future.

This is the way things like this should be done. The convenience is really exceptional for anyone who does not have the time to sit around at the dealer or auto shop. Kevin arrived as expected with all the parts needed and a couple extra just in case. He triple checked my tests and confirmed the alternator was bad. His processes were logical and smart. This was his first of the newer Hyundai Santa Fe's, but he handled it very well. He had every tool he needed, was very easy to communicate with and insisted on answering all of my questions, even the naive ones.

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.
