Jimmy arrived ten minutes early to the appointment time and exited his car with the biggest and friendliest smile. With this being my first time using a service like this, I was leery and hesitant, but our initial conversation made me feel good. He expeditiously confirmed the problem and completed the work in less time than was suggested at the time of my appointment. We discussed other work that needs to be done and price range for the work. I am thoroughly pleased with his demeanor and work. I will be calling on his services again next month.

There was a small delay in the appointment time but William handled the issue with prompt and courteous communication. Upon arrival he wasted no time in beginning his task and was very polite and professional as he worked to replace my alternator and continued to keep me informed as to what he was doing throughout the installation process. I can`t believe that I saved not only money but time while using this Service! I would most defiantly use the site again!

This is the way things like this should be done. The convenience is really exceptional for anyone who does not have the time to sit around at the dealer or auto shop. Kevin arrived as expected with all the parts needed and a couple extra just in case. He triple checked my tests and confirmed the alternator was bad. His processes were logical and smart. This was his first of the newer Hyundai Santa Fe's, but he handled it very well. He had every tool he needed, was very easy to communicate with and insisted on answering all of my questions, even the naive ones.

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.
