How Much Does Alternator Repair Cost?

The car alternator is used to charge the battery and power the electrical system while the car is running.  When you use any electrical component, such as your lights or radio, inside your car, it’s the alternator recharging the battery as it loses power to power these parts, effectively replenishing the lost power.  If the alternator isn’t working according to plan, then the car will only stay running for as long as the battery has power.  Once the battery loses its power and isn’t restored, then the car won’t start.  In most cars, a malfunctioning alternator will turn on a battery warning light or have a low voltage gauge reading.
