This was the first time I used YourMechanic. I was ecstatic by how knowledgeable and friendly Jeffrey was. I am back on the road again. The service was also reasonable. I called several shops and their quotes were high in addition to having it towed to them. I am very pleased. Veronica
Very friendly and upbeat!

I could not be happier with this experience! I had initially requested the wrong service, David told me up front what I didn't need, gave me a new quote within minutes, then readily took the time to go find the right parts to make sure my car was fixed properly. He even had my account credited for the work I did not need. He took the time to both show me and explain to me how things work and why they go wrong.While he was working, he developed a time frame and quote for service I would need in the future, and gave me maintenance advice. He was very thorough, very knowledgeable and very professional. With David, I got better service at a better price than at any local garage, and it was so convenient. I will recommend YourMechanic and David to everyone!!

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.
