Alternator Service and Replacement in Castro Valley
If your vehicle has difficulties starting, the problem might not be the battery, but the alternator. At Adams Autoworx we provide alternator diagnostics, as well as alternator replacement if necessary. If your vehicle has starting problems, our nationally ASE certified technicians will inspect and test not just the alternator, but the entire charging system, find the root cause of the problem and provide a solution that will get your car back on the road – and starting reliably.
The alternator is a vital element of your vehicle. When the vehicle is running, the alternator powers all the electrical systems and recharges the car battery. In the olden days, the electrical demands of a vehicle were fairly limited – electricity for the spark plugs, pumps, fans, and the radio. Modern vehicles place much greater demands on the electrical system – you can add power windows, dozens of embedded computers and sensors, GPS systems, entertainment systems, and electronic dashboards – they all rely on electricity. So if the alternator fails to function correctly, the battery will be drained in short order.
So if you are not sure if the electrical system is working correctly, bring your vehicle to Adams Autoworx in Castro Valley. We will check the charging system and let you know if there is a problem that needs to be fixed. All repairs and services performed at our Castro Valley auto repair shop carry:
