What is alternator replacement service about?

The alternator is a complex component of the vehicle's charging system. It’s main purpose is to supply voltage and amperage to maintain the electrical demands of the vehicle. It works in conjunction with a battery, wiring and a regulator such as a voltage regulator or ECU (engine control unit/module). Alternators can supply as little as 30amps and as much as 300amps, depending on the model and application. Alternators typically generate amperage by running off a belt driven from the crank shaft.

Signs Of Needing Alternator Replacement Service

  • Belt squeal when the engine is started or running
  • Dimming of the lights during high load & low RPM
  • Battery acid bubbling out of battery
  • Hard starting or long cranking
  • Charging light on the dash

Our recommendation

You car’s charging system should be tested at least twice annually to ensure all components are in good working order. This includes checking for worn belts and a weak battery. A weak battery can cause extra stress on the alternator and cause alternator failure. This could lead to your car not starting and leaving you stranded. It is also a good practice to service the battery terminals when testing the starting and charging system.
