Ruben is very easy to work with and understand what needs to be done. We discussed the problem and several ways of approaching. Ruben identified the risks with each approach and we settled on a method. In a short time the alternator (in a really difficult location on a 2012 Chrysler) had been replaced and he was testing to be sure the output was within specs. I liked his approach of explaining the procedure and answering questions. Would definitely use Ruben again.

Richard was on-time and very thorough. He explained what he was going to do before he started and gave me an ETA. He finished in the amount of time he estimated and when he was done he showed me the finished result and made sure I was satisfied and understood the repair before he closed my ticket. I was very impressed and will definitely request Richard next time I need some repair work done.

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.
