Noe diagnosed the problem of our car not starting as being caused by a defective alternator. He installed a new alternator, and the car seems to be running okay now (although it's still idling rough). Hopefully this alternator will last longer than the previous one (which was installed by a different mechanic) lasted.
Noe was early to the appointment, diagnosed everything and made all repairs. Very pleased and will definitely hire him again!

Very nice and polite. Showed up on time, gave me an estimate of how long it'll take to fix the alternator. Texted me when he was done and explained the work that he had done, as well as work that needs to be done. Will definitely book Nicholas again.

Frank came on time though it was rainy day. He was well equipped with all the necessary tools. The alternator was not working in my car so he brought alternator along with him. He worked on the car for longer time to make sure nothing major is missed out of the sight. I will book him again in future if needed.

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.
