Travis got to my apartment within a reasonable amount of time and got my alternator done quickly. He even let me know that a part I had asked to be serviced said looked great and ended up taking it off my total. Would recommend him!

My alternator was going bad - giving me all the warning signs. I knew I could rely on Chris and his experience to get the job done right. I booked him that evening for the next morning. When I got home from work, I had a new alternator, working truck, and clean work site - no hassle, no bargaining and frustration with the car shop. Chris and the your mechanic service saved me in a crunch and I was able to use my truck for work as soon as the next day! Very happy customer, would recommend to family and friends

What an awesome guy! Went way above and beyond what anyone could have expected. Upon realizing that my car needed more than just a new battery, he went back to the auto parts store and got a new alternator and tensioner, went to another job to finish up, then came BACK to my house and finished my repairs. He did not leave to go home until midnight. We were going on vacation the next day, so he was a real lifesaver! Fantastic experience from start to finish! Really appreciate you James!

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.
