FAQ:

 

How do I know if my alternator needs repair?

Look out for warning signs such as dimming lights, strange smells, or an illuminated battery warning light. If you notice any of these, it's best to get your alternator checked by our Preston auto electricians.

 

How long does an alternator repair usually take?

Replacing an alternator takes Preston auto electricians about two hours. Sometimes, there may be an extended wait before someone can service it properly, and parts needing delivery may add even further time delays.

 

Can I prevent alternator issues in the future?

  • Regular Maintenance

For optimal alternator performance, regular servicing should be conducted. This is the only way to accurately gauge all components' condition and make any necessary replacements as soon as necessary.

Belts should be examined every six months to ensure they don't contain any cracks or become overstretched or loose. Doing this will allow for proper functioning without the risk of breakages or overextensions.

Effective battery management requires taking two measures. First, avoid leaving your car idle for more than 20 days at a time, as electronic devices left running consume battery power over time.

Second, avoid using electronic devices while the engine is turned off as this accelerates battery discharge and damages its voltage regulator, as the alternator must release more energy to compensate.

  • Avoid Excess Electrical Accessories

A high-powered sound system, electric windows, and xenon headlights are features any driver would enjoy having in their car; but before making these additions permanent, it's important to take note of both alternator and battery capacities before proceeding with installation.
