Shaun was on time, very professional, and completed the alternator replacement in no time. Shaun did a great job and I would happily have him work on my vehicles again.
Shaun was fantastic! This was my first experience with YourMechanic and I am so pleasantly surprised at how easy it was and that such a friendly professional arrived to preform the service requested. He did a thorough look over my car and gave me a clear picture of other things that I have that my give me some trouble. I really appreciated that effort as now I can plan for these repairs versus having a urgent/surprise situation.

Eric was very professional and even showed up earlier than I had expected him to. He got my car up and running in no time, was truly a life safer saving me the money of having to get at tow to get my car to the repair shop.

He was 3.5 hours late for our apt, but he was very professional and checked in by calling to let me know there was traffic and other issues that prevented him from getting to us at the scheduled time. Which I completely understood and ok with. Better that than him cancel like out first apt. He was professional and knowledgeable.

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.
