Car Alternator Repair and Replacement Services

Your car’s alternator is one of the most important parts of the vehicle. It’s responsible for generating an electrical charge that recharges the battery, which is critical for running the engine and accessories. The good news is that alternators are simple components that rarely fail. The bad news is that a broken, damaged or worn alternator can easily leave you stranded in your driveway.

Access Auto Electrics offers a comprehensive range of car alternator repair and replacement services to prevent that from happening. Your alternator should last 10 years or more, so most drivers never need to worry about a replacement. If you do run into an issue though, our team is happy to diagnose and rebuild, repair or replace your alternator.

Signs Your Alternator Might Need Replacing

Flat Battery

Car batteries have a limited lifespan, and a dead battery usually means it’s simply time for a replacement. But flat batteries can also be a sign that something is wrong with the alternator. Our experienced technicians can diagnose the issue, identify whether it’s a problem with your battery or alternator, and then repair the problem.

Stalling Engine

If your engine stalls while driving, it can be due to an underperforming alternator. Car engines require small amounts of electricity while running. If your battery can’t provide that power, it’s a sign that something is wrong with the alternator. Our team will be able to conduct diagnostic tests and offer car alternator repairs to fix the issue.

Dim Lights

The lights in your car should provide a steady beam. If your headlights or dashboard lights are noticeably dim, or if they flicker while driving, this can be a sign that you need car alternator repair. If you notice this issue then it’s best to book an appointment sooner rather than later. That will allow us to repair the problem before you find yourself stuck with a car that won’t start.

Electrical Issues

An old or faulty alternator may still be able to provide enough power to start the car and run accessories like the lights. The tricky part is that you may experience other electrical issues, like problems with the windows or radio. These small things can indicate there’s something wrong with your alternator. You’ll usually need the help of an experienced auto electrician in these cases, as it can be challenging to diagnose the issue.

Should My Alternator Be Repaired or Replaced?

We typically recommend replacing a faulty alternator. Your alternator is a critical part of keeping your car running, and an old, damaged or malfunctioning alternator could leave you stranded. Replacing your alternator is a straightforward process, and it ensures you’ll never find yourself stuck on the side of the road.
In some cases, we may recommend repairing an alternator if it’s the more affordable option. The good news is that alternators are relatively simple devices. That means there are only a few potential faults in most cars, and we can usually source spare parts to carry out repairs.
You’ll need to talk to our technicians to figure out whether repair or replacement is the right choice for your car. We’ll assess your vehicle, test the alternator and make a recommendation as to whether it will be cheaper to repair or replace the part.
