I purposely booked Brandon as he has been wonderful in the past. He arrived early (!!!!) to my appointment I booked earlier the same morning. He replaced what needed to be done quickly and made sure it was all a go. I have a flat tire from recently hitting a deer and he helped me out and changed it to my donut without charging me or bothering me about it. He’s great.
Brandon is an extreme polite and courteous technician. He communicated about his arrival time about the repair once he arrived. He was timely with the repair and my car is running very well now.

I was ready to give up on my car but Dellano restored my faith in my 2005 Honda Accord. He explained everything in detail and installed a new alternator and changed my oil in about an hour. He was a God send! Thanks Dellano! I will be calling and requesting him for any future service needed on my car.

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.
