A BIG thanks to Scott for coming out and putting in my alternator. I've tested it and its working great. Even though my alternator is in an awkward position, Scott knew exactly what he was doing and took off a tire and installed it from below the car. He also finished the job in less than an hour and charged me for the pre-quoted 'alternator installation' even though the shops I spoke with before finding Your Mechanic wanted to charge me double or triple the cost because of the alternator's location. I even told Scott that I wouldn't mind if he charges me beyond the quote... but lo and behold he finished the job in less than an hour and absolutely refused to charge anything beyond what I was pre-quoted by YourMechanic. I will absolutely recommend this service to everyone.

My wife's alternator was going bad and I didn't know where to turn (being new to the city and all). I found Yourmechanic.com and was a little skeptical, but I gave it a try, and let me say I AM PLEASED! The service was great and didn't take long. The car is running great now. Mr. Anthony was very nice and professional. I will be using you all again.

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.

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.
