Jeremy works really fast while being thorough I don't think it even took him half an hour to finish with my alternator whereas others told me it would take up to 2 hours, he was very friendly and answered any questions I had even if it was unrelated to what he was working on for me. I'll definitely book him again should I be in need of a mechanic again but hopefully not to soon. :) Will definitely refer to anyone I know.

Came to replace the belt and found an issue with the alternator we had installed a couple months back. Walked me through the warranty claim and showed up the next morning with the part in hand and got it installed quickly. Great guy and a pleasure to hang out with while he worked on my truck.

Joe was very knowledgeable and he was able to complete the repair without any problems. He also was able to give me an idea of the cost of future work that needs to be done. U definitely will be using him for any additional repair needs because I was able to save a significant amount of money.

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.
