Alex did an excellent job on the car. He also identified an issue with our brake pads we were unaware of which would have been a more expensive problem had we waited until they created noise.
Alex was professional, prompt and is a highly competent mechanic. What else could you ask for? Thanks Alex!

I could not be happier with todays service. Frank was awesome. Professional, friendly, and just seemed like one of those guys you wish you'd met years ago. He even identified a few things that weren't issues now, but could be in the future. I will definitely be using Frank for all things automotive from now on. Well done sir!

I have a regular mechanic that I could not physically get my car to, so I was skeptical to use someone I did not know. David was so nice and trustworthy from the first call and put me at ease immediately. I could not make the appointment so my dad facilitated and David was more than happy to help make my stressful situation work and get my car moving again. YourMechanic.com and David saved the day for me and made this alternator situation so much easier. I will definitely be using them again and have already told my friends and family!

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.
