Jason was great. The alternator was very hard to remove, but he stuck with it and use his techniques to dislodge it. I'm happy with his service.
Jason was right on time. He thoroughly explained what he was going to do. The repair was completed faster than a garage. I will use this service and mechanic again.

Friendly guy, called ahead to ensure he could arrive early, advised that my serpentine belt didn’t need to be replaced and installed a new alternator in an hour!
Nicholas was punctual and in fact showed up 5 minutes early even though my appointment was 7 am on a Sunday morning. He was very polite and professional. He completed the work in a timely manner and made other service recommendations for my vehicle. Would definitely recommend using this mechanic and this company.

Bryant put an alternator in my 2001 Acura MDX. He tested the alternator to make sure it was bad before he took it out. It probably took him 30 minutes to complete the job and the vehicle runs great. I would recommend Bryant without reservation.

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.
