Wayne did a great job! He was originally supposed to be at my appointment at 6:30pm. He called and asked if he could come sooner and he did just that. He was nice and professional. He double checked my car to make sure my problem was the real thing before doing any work on my car. When he was done, he rechecked again and everything was running smoothly. I was a happy customer, because he got me back on the road again. I would definitely recommend him to friends and also use him again myself.

Arrived a little early and got right to work. James was professional and efficient and replaced the alternator in less than an hour. He was obviously familiar with my vehicle make and model and knew exactly what to do.

Andres was very polite, courteous, and arrived on time to fix our car. Originally, he was sent with the wrong variety of the alternator we needed, but Andrew ran and picked up the correct part from a nearby store with no additional charge or hassle.

I had an outstanding interaction with Phillip. He showed up right on time and efficiently carried out the job (replaced alternator). He was very knowledgeable and took the time to explain the work and answer my questions. He was very nice, and gave me an honest analysis of the job and other issues he observed with the car.

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.
