Can’t say enough about this repair it was reasonably priced and effortless. Justin came a few minutes before his scheduled appointment. When he arrived, we spoke briefly about the problem with the car, then he got right to work. He is knowledgeable and professional explains things in simple terms and is an overall very nice person. Not only did he replace my alternator he also did a brief inspection and identified areas that might need servicing. This repair worked out well for me and the car runs like a charm. No longer will I have to make time to drop off my car or sit 4 hours in a repair shop only to get a mega bill in the end. I will be calling him again for my future car repairs.

James is a true professional. He did an outstanding job. Knows his stuff and is very diligent to do the job right even when everything doesn't always go as expect. It was obvious from watching James work and listening to him talk that he very much enjoys working on cars and will not take short cuts in the interest of time. Would trust him to work on any of my cars any time. Thanks very much!

Allen arrived on time, and did an excellent job replacing my alternator. Although I had purchased the wrong one, he was able to install it without much difficulty. He is very experienced and honest, and really knows his stuff. I can definitely recommend him, and his prices are very fair.

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.
