Travis was great. He showed up on time and talked me through my vehicle needs. Travis finished in a timely manner and then showed me other maintenance my vehicle needs. We made an appointment right then and there for my next repairs. Thank you Travis.

Tinashe arrived exactly on time for my appointment. I knew what I needed done so he jumped right into working and completed the job efficiently and quickly. He went over a few additional things I will need done within the next few months and checked on an A/C related issue I had with the my car. (Turns out replacing the alternator corrected that issue and no problem was found.) Bonus stuff: He is polite and has a wonderful sense of humor.

DEAR CASEY . I had figured out what the problem was and you agreed. It was the alternator. HOWEVER CASEY....I need you to know that the comment you made about 'something like a fan BELT or something'...well, it turns out our car has been making this 'BELT' sound since the install of the alternator. I bet you know what it is, right? Please Call either me, Cindy Rose or my husband, John Rose at 206-527-6598 Thank you!

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.
