Andrew was on time and replaced the alternator. However, when finished, the car still wouldn't start. He mentioned the battery might be dead and we tried to jump it to no avail. After he left, I went and bought a new battery and the car started fine.
Really fast and reliable service. He also gave me tips and quotes for some problems that I am having with my cars. A+

Aaron came to my office building and replaced the alternator on my car. He also checked my car thoroughly and told me about the beginning of a little problem that I'll keep an eye on and plan on having him take care of in a couple months. I am very, very pleased with Aaron and his friendly, down-to-earth personality; I was comfortable talking over any concerns I had. He listened and gave me good advice. I'll continue calling on him to keep my 1996 Toyota Camry in good shape (it's a great car). I recommend him 100%.

Friendly, professional and timely! I couldn’t move my car so for him to be able to come to me was great. He was quick, efficient and made sure all my questions about other things he wasn’t there for were answered before he left. Had an appointment at 3:30pm and he called me that he was at my home at exactly that time. Will definitely be calling him for future fixes

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.
