Installed everything perfect I very much appreciated it, however now the button on the driver side door for the passenger side window does not work. I'm not sure if it was from his doing or what but it worked fine prior to him fixing it. I would like this to be addressed immediately.
Good communication, knowledgeable, got the job done!

The mechanic arrive 30 minutes early and started working on the vehicle promptly. Within 15 minutes he was underneath the car with his tools all settled. He completed the job in about an hour and a half... Which was very quick from my own experience dealing with auto shops. When he completed the job, I was informed in areas of improvement to my vehicle and he have me a few tips. Overall, he did a very thorough job in a little amount of time. He wasn't needy or pushy. I would highly recommend.

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.
