Jonathan arrived early, and within the hour had changed my alternator. Booking him was easy ( it was same day after another mechanic cancelled). Jonathan was knowlegeable, quick, and really nice! One of the best maintenance jobs I've ever booked. I would recommend his sevices to anyone.

He showed up promptly and got right to work. Definitely seemed knowledgeable and was very personable while working. Genuinely seemed to want me to have a working car, not just out to make a buck.

I own a 2007 Lexus IS250 my alternator went out on Christmas eve. I shopped around for quotes for a couple of days your mechanic gave me a quote for almost half of what others were asking! So I booked. Michael Showed up and got right to work! Me and my husband were VERY impressed with his work! I am very picky with my car, but i will definitely be using your mechanic and Michael 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.
