He is awesome! He was there earlier than I expected and completed the task earlier than expected. He is fantastic, the time he saved me and the aggravation! I just wish I had known about your service earlier. I have recommended you to all my friends and family. Thank you, thank you!!
Harish was on time, he replaced my alternator without any issues. I will be recommending his services.

Irven arrived early, he was very polite and he took the time to answer all my questions regarding my van. He did the work (changed the Alternator) in a timely manner and my van is now running. I very much appreciate the convenience of not taking the van to a shop but to have the work done from my home, very convenient.

Excellent mechanic. Honest, knowledgeable, quick and arrived on time. As a first time user of "Your Mechanic" I highly recommend James and this great app to do all future car maintenance services. I called several dealers in the New Orleans DMA and "Your Mechanic" was by far the best price.

Alex did an excellent job on the car. He also identified an issue with our brake pads we were unaware of which would have been a more expensive problem had we waited until they created noise.

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.
