Auto Alternator Repair and Replacement in Albany
Adams Autoworx is the leading auto service and repair shop in Albany. Our family owned full-service auto repair facility offers services and repairs from most makes and models. We offer car alternator testing among our many services. Our nationally ASE certified technician can perform professional alternator testing, as well as the entire battery/charging and starting system tests.
The job of an alternator is to power all electrical systems in the car, GPS, lights, entertainment systems, and the starting system. It also recharges the 12 volt car battery. If the alternator goes bad or is failing, it will result in a discharge of the car’s battery, may cause issues with the electrical system, and in the worst case scenario, it will leave you stranded in the middle of nowhere.
We recommend having your vehicle’s alternator tested if you notice any symptoms of alternator problems. We recommend keeping an eye out for:
- lights dim
- radio turning itself off
- difficult to start the engine
- power windows slow to operate
- service engine light is on
The obvious sign of serious electrical/charging problems is dead battery. Engine stalling can also occur due to a failing alternator.
Our technicians at the Albany auto repair shop we can perform alternator testing as a part of your oil change visit. You do need to ask about alternator testing – it is not part of oil change, nor is it a part of our complimentary digital vehicle inspection. We do check that belt that drives the alternator, but we will not perform a test of the alternator itself unless you ask us to do so. If you notice any of the above symptoms, definitely let us know.
All repairs performed at Adams Autoworx Albany are backed by our 36 months / 36,000 miles nationwide warranty. For your convenience we offer local Lyft, so you can go about your day while we test the alternator and the starting/charging system. We offer convenient appointments on our website, or simply call us at the shop – we are happy to answer any alternator or charging system questions, and we can make an appointment at the same time.
