Thank you soo much! Michael was great, he was very nice and very helpful. I’m pregnant and due in a matter of days and he was able to fit me in sooner than would of been possible and finish the job so I could for sure have a car when the time comes. I’ve been spending a ton on Uber’s and it’s such a waste when you really think about it. I love this service, it’s so great to have piece of mind that someone’s not going to flake on you and not show up like I’ve had happen with a different mobile mechanic (that is not on this service). He was on time and got straight to work. He’s an excellent worker and is fast and hard working. I’m going to have him back to fix the alternator on my Cadillac and possibly some other work I will need done in the future. I definitely recommend Michael to others, he will not disappoint.

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.
