Part of our Better Mechanical Service
Modern cars have a number of electrical components that require battery power to operate. Your battery would be drained in a matter of hours, maybe even minutes, if it were not for your alternator. If your car’s electrical systems or battery are dying or dead, you may need alternator repair or replacement—not a new battery. To accurately diagnose the mechanical issue and get quality mechanical repair, bring your car to Quanz Auto Care.
Signs You May Need Alternator Repair or Replacement
Age is generally the reason alternators stop working. However, there may be internal components that have failed, bringing an early end to an alternator’s useful life. No matter the reason, you may notice performance issues similar to those created by a dying battery, including:
- Illuminated battery light on the dash
- Ignition failure
Because battery and alternator issues produce the same symptoms, the team members at Quanz Auto Care need to run a quick diagnostic test to determine which component is really the problem.
