If you enjoy using your car's electrical features, thank the alternator. It is responsible for your car's battery that powers your stereo, lights, etc. If your car loses battery and does not have a working alternator, your car will not start. Your car will usually signal to you that something is not right via a battery warning light or will have a low volt gauge reading.
As the power source of your entire car, the alternator is one of the most vital pieces of a machinery in any vehicle. You will not be able to start the car, turn on the lights, use the AC or any of the other many features you normally enjoy.
Not only that, it is generally dangerous to drive without a working alternator as if the battery runs out, vital functions that you use for driving may fail. If the warning light or check engine light is on, we recommend you get an expert inspection immediately. Otherwise, it'll be lights out.
Peter was very knowledgeable and professional, he advised me of the other issues I may be having with my car and I appreciate it. Please thank him for me.
The technician Peter was good - the whole experience wasn't without its troubles though. Overall they were responsive and fixed any outstanding issues. I would ensure that you understand the services you want to perform and also the simple fact that unlike a shop they won't have all the material you need with them all the time.
