Alternator Repair Service

What is the Alternator all about?

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

Keep in mind:

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.

How it's done:

  • 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:

Ask your mechanic to inspect the condition of the charging system during every major service. 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.

How important is this service?

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.

Theordore is a great mechanic. I have a 2007 Commander that is beginning to have issues after 120,000 miles. I live in a big city and dont have a trustworthy mechanic. After googling issues, I thought I only needed a serpentine belt, so I made the appointment for that and it turned out to be a whole new alternator. Every time he found an issue, he would explain what was going on and also show me, or try to get me to listen to the issue, in order to assure me he was being honest. On the flip side, there were parts I thought might be bad, and he would let me know they were fine. He was honest about how much life I could get out of parts before needing to replace them, instead of attempting to upsell or get me to replace things. When it was time to talk money on parts, he showed me line by line the part and how much that costs, and then how much everything would be upfront. I am on a major budget and I felt like he was trustworthy and was only trying to get me to do what I needed to do. He came out and had the alternator changed, along with an oil change in less than a couple of hours. Easy-breezy.
