Jonathan was very professional and explained to me everything that was wrong with the vehicle. He went above and beyond, there was a problem with the key and he took the time to reset the key. I would love to him be my mechanic next time.

Darius was very professional, he showed up with all the required parts and was able to finish the repair in probably 1/4 of the time it would have taken me to do the job myself. I didn't even know that I was able to hire a professional auto mechanic that would come to my home and take care of the job, saved me the possibility of having to take the chance of driving my car which could have left me stranded or paying for a tow truck to get my car to a service center. I was a bit skeptical of the service at first but the professional service I received put my worries to rest. Thank you Yourmechanic for the great service and help, I will recommend you to any of my friends that require auto help, and thank you Darius for your hard work and professionalism.

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.
