Alternator Repair and Service
Alternators need to work harder than ever. The automotive platform is much more electric and electronic than ever. Systems like power steering are now powered by the electrical system instead of a hydraulic belt-driven setup. The are many safety features and sensors that are electronic and in turn, need a power supply from the battery and the electrical system.
The job of your alternator is to keep the battery fully charged in order to supply voltage to all the components that need it. If your battery, for instance, is older, it may not be able to hold a charge as long, and overwork the alternator and cause it to fail. If you have a newer battery and have to jump-start your car, there may be a problem with the alternator. Eby's Garage can test your charging system and battery to determine if a repair is needed.
When you have regularly performed maintenance, Eby's Garage can test your battery to make sure it will start your engine when you need it.
