David was quick and proficient while replacing my alternator. Only issue was once David finished replacement there was no way to check his work. Battery was dead and he was unable to start my vehicle. He then left and I was still without a working vehicle. Apparently after talking to customer service for yourmechanic.com, this is a common practice. If you don't ask for a jump or to charge battery while requesting service, then it's not the mechanics responsibility to make sure the repair is functional.

Your parts department ordered wrong part. Brandon worked with me and got correct part. He is one of the best people I dealt with and knows his job well. He cares about his job and the customer. I will only be dealing with Brandon if I have my choice. He is worth waiting for in his schedule. As for the parts department, they need to go back to training school.

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.
