Jamal was absolutely great. He was on time. He is definitely a professional. Jamal took the time to explain detail by detail of what was wrong and needed to be fixed. I was so impressed that he worked so diligently throughout a downpour of rain. I will surely recommend him to others and I now consider him my personal mechanic. Verona P.

Jose got the job done and on budget. Easy to communicate with and patient with my questions while he worked. He verified everything was working properly before he left. My Hyundai model makes the alternator replacement much more complicated than the average car due to space constrains. Even though he didn't immediately know what would have to be pulled from the engine compartment to make space, he was able to use his experience and judgment to find the correct procedure. I called the dealership and they confirmed he had the correct plan of attack to get the alternator out and replaced.

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.
