Alternator Service and Repair and Charging System Service and Repair

The first sign of alternator or charging system trouble may be dim headlights, an engine that is slow to crank or won't crank at all. The charging system keeps the battery charged, and supplies voltage for the entire electrical system. So if the alternator, voltage regulator or wiring that connects the charging system to the battery and electrical system goes bad, it can create serious problems.

Charging problems can be caused by electrical faults in the charging system itself, by poor wiring connections at the battery or elsewhere, or by a slipping or broken drive belt. If there is no charging output, the battery will quickly discharge. You may have 20 minutes to an hour of driving time before everything goes dead and the vehicle shuts down.

Once battery voltage drops below a certain threshold, the on-board electronics, ignition and fuel systems may stop working normally and cause the engine to stall. The battery will not have enough reserve power to restart the engine, so the vehicle will be stranded until the problem can be diagnosed and repaired.

If you're having problems, or just simple want to stay one step ahead of the game, bring your vehicle in and we'll take a look at it for you, diagnosing any alternator problems.
