Jose arrived on time and did an amazing job installing my new alternator! The repair was difficult because the alternator is in a very tight space and definitely took more work than what was estimated by the website. He did the repair for the estimated price ( even though he deserved more )with a great attitude. Super friendly, honest and trustworthy mechanic; I would definitely use him again:)

Nick arrived on time and was incredible! The labor he did on my car was no easy task and it was horribly hot an humid. He did a great job (with a smile) and I will definitely be using him again.

Casey is friendly and knowledgeable mechanic. Nissan Murano is definitely not the easiest car to work with, but he figured it all out and did a perfect job of replacing a broken alternator. I will definitely use his services again as well as recommend him to my friends and colleagues. YourMechanic is awesome, too. I though it would take at least a few days to get my car fixed, and then I found YourMechanic.com at around midnight, booked an appointment and went to sleep. The next evening my car was already fixed, in less than 24 hours!

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.
