Instantly vibed that Steven was not only a very pleasant, trustworthy person but, an experienced mechanic. He found and pointed out a couple other small issues, outside of the alternator replacement in which I had booked him for, that he took care of without question or additional fees. Came all the way from Surprise, called 30 minutes before to confirm and was even early. He was fully prepared and able to answer any questions I may have had. Couldn't be happier with his expertise and service. Highly recommend Steven to any and everyone. He's a family guy and it shows in the care he takes with his work. Thanks again!

Abdul was on time on a very cold day. He finished my job in a little over an hour and a half. The price was much better than I was quoted elsewhere, so I hope the car is fixed properly. Only time will tell. But, I was very pleased with Abdul.

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.
