Emanuel showed up five minutes before the scheduled time (in fact he called and offered to come an hour earlier than scheduled), quickly diagnosed the problem as a (suspected) bad alternator in less than five minutes, and got to work. Almost exactly an hour later, he knocked on my door and said "You're done!". Car works great, and I'm blown away by his punctuality, courtesy, and professionalism. Will definitely be using YourMechanic and Emanuel G. again!

Came across this site accidentally but sooo glad I did...what a concept...getting excellent service where your car is located. I was reminded of the appointment several times so there were no suprises...I texted him that my driveway was steep and he wasn't sure if that would be a problem..he drove up, backed down..got right to work with no wasted time got the job done...my son in law thanked him for me and I told him to tell Dan we were extremely impressed with his service and professionalism. As a bonus I got a followup of the general condition of the car which was important to me since my husband was planning to trash it!! I'll keep it as long as I can...THANKS DAN!!

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.
