My car was completely dead and I was not able to get it to a mechanic or a location to buy the parts and it was very peaceful knowing that someone could come out and help me to get my car running again I needed an alternator and a battery replacement Breck was very nice and professional when he got there he checked out the car to make sure what was needed and then he said go on back inside and relax and I'll call you when it's done. Also my appointment was at 12:30 and Breck was right on time it took about an hour and I will definitely be using your mechanic in the future. Was not stressful at all he also informed me of other little things that might need attention. I really appreciated that. Thanks soo much Breck u were a lifesaver.
Breck was very professional and did a great job.

Joe is professional, mostly quiet and efficient when it came to getting the job done right in less time. It seems that he's passionate in what he does, and it shows. I thought that replacing the alternator was a DIY job until I was observing Joe and I figured out it was more complicated than DIY because it took special types of tools that I didn't have to do that particular job. Anyway, after the new alternator was installed, Joe asked me to start the car up and it worked fine. I had the car running for about ten minutes and it was still running with no warning lights flashing on the dashboard. When I have a another major problem, I'd come to Joe.

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.
