Great service and professional.
Joseph showed up early, did not mess around, and got the alternator changed out on our 2012 Honda Odyssey. Was also helpful with recommendations on how to source new keys (our Honda keys are coming loose from their cases) and he supplied a quote on a timing belt/water pump replacement that is coming due. Highly recommend Joseph and we’ll use Your Mechanic and Joseph again.

Carlos replaced a blown alternator during freezing weather in a stiff wind and still smiled. Quick, thorough, great work ethic, good educator regarding car care, and just wonderful. A real "go to" guy for repairs.

Abdul was on time on a very cold day. He finished my job in a little over an hour and a half. The price was much better than I was quoted elsewhere, so I hope the car is fixed properly. Only time will tell. But, I was very pleased with Abdul.

This was my first time using a mechanic online, I have to say I was pleasantly surprised that my mechanic Steve arrived early and went straight to work. He did a great job, and I will use him again.

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.
