Ben called to see if he could come to the appointment early. He was nice and he installed the alternator and belts and jumped the car to get it running. I was told to leave it running for about 10 minutes to charge the battery , then I'd be good to go. I let the car run for at least 20 minutes then turned it off and it wouldn't restart. I called him and left a message but he didn't return it. I called the main number which took hours to call me back just to say that they had to call me back again. When they called back the next day, they said that Ben had informed me that I would need new battery terminals...WHAT?? He NEVER mentioned anything about the battery terminals and his report has nothing to say about the battery. He either lied to the office or neglected to tell me or put it on the report. So then they asked me if I wanted to set up an appointment to get the terminals installed....NO!! I'm not booking another appointment after that!! Are they crazy??? I'll get someone else to do the terminals and I will NEVER use YourMechanic again.

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.
