Alternator Repair and Replacement

Alternator Repair and Replacement

Maintain Your Vehicle’s Electrical Charging System

The alternator is a critical component of a vehicle’s electrical system, in particular the charging system. It generates power that charges the battery and provides electricity for various electrical components while the engine is running. If the alternator malfunctions or fails, you can experience electrical issues and/or a dead car battery, difficulty starting your car, dimming lights in the vehicle’s interior, a warning light on the dashboard, and other issues.

An alternator should last anywhere from 80,000 to 150,000 miles depending on your driving style and typical driving conditions, whether you are staying up-to-date with your vehicle’s maintenance, and the quality of the alternator. If your alternator is not functioning properly, the first step is to diagnose the issue: Is the wiring damaged? Are there worn-out brushes? The repair may involve replacing specific parts or conducting a rebuild. It can take an experienced mechanic several hours to change an alternator. We may recommend alternator replacement, especially if the alternator is severely damaged.
