Alternator Repair Service & Cost

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.

Jeffrey
22 years of experience
Jeffrey was scheduled to arrive at my house at 1:15 PM, he arrived nearly 20 mins earlier than that. Throughout the process of him putting in my new alternator and serpentine belt, he kept me posted on what he was doing and if he saw anything unusual with my vehicle (which he didn't). I just would like to thank Jeffrey for the excellent job he did, my car is running just as smooth as it ever has and will definitely be going back to him for services in the future. He definitely has made me a repeat customer and happy first time user of YourMechanic's services.

Danny

Ok so Danny was late for our 3PM appointment but to be fair both yourmechanic and Danny did notify me that he would be running late because his prior appointment ran over and I can understand that. Upon arriving at my home Danny was respectful and professional. We did have to clear up some points on what was to be done but that was more about yourmechanic than Danny. One he got going Danny replaced my busted alternator and got my car back on track. Overall I was very impressed with Danny's service.
