While Shaun arrived a little late (I was concerned about the total time it would take since I blocked a couple of hours for the repair and scheduled a business call right after the time I had blocked for the repair), he assured me that it would be done in within an hour - and he was absolutely right about that! He got to work right away, after asking some relevant questions. About 50 minutes later the repair (alternator replacement) was done, and an inspection report was instantly submitted which I can view online, along with my receipt. No way any shop can beat this price - I saved if not more, then at least 28-30% of the lowest quote I got from any reputable shop in the surrounding neighborhoods - for the same service and warranty. Plus none of the hassle of calling AAA to tow the car to a repair shop! If convenience, unbeatable price for the service and an expert mechanic is what you are looking for - totally recommend Shaun and YourMechanic. You will not be disappointed!

Kevin arrived early and began working right away. He was courteous and pleasant to work with. He made sure to explain and help me understand the steps and work he was performing. There was light rain scheduled during our session, however Kevin came very prepared with a canopy tent to work under. Highly recommend, would definitely have Kevin work again 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.
