Awesome mechanic. He called me as soon as I booked my appointment let me know when he was going to be there called me when he was on the way. I was at work and he fixed my car and gave me a diagnostics on what I need to get fixed in the future definitely will call him again. He was very polite and courteous and professional.
What a GREAT mechanic and personable, professional man! I would hire him again in a heart beat. I had a bad experience with another “mechanic” and Keith was called because he could not only fix my car, but would make what happened to me right. He was great. I love talking with someone who is knowledgeable and friendly. He checked several things on my car that definitely need to be fixed, which Keith will be doing. I would recommend this mechanic to anyone who wants a great AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, honest.

I was not home. Tomas was about an hour early. I had to send my son a text to open the door and hand him the keys to my car. In about an hour Tomas called me and gave me the news that the new alternator had been installed and the car was fixed. Effortless...

The service was very reasonable priced, the convenience of having Terry come to my place (rather than a shop) was great, and my car has been fixed. Thanks Terrell!!

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.
