EASTSIDE BAVARIAN: YOUR TRUSTED ALTERNATOR REPAIR SHOP
Your alternator is an integral part of your starting system, helping to restore power to the battery that is lost while starting and running the engine. A failing alternator will lead to dimmed lights, a weak or dead battery, difficulty starting, strange smells, and odd sounds such as grinding or whining. It can also affect other parts of the charging and starting system causing further failures.
Our technicians will perform several tests to make sure we test the issue properly. This includes visual inspection and electrical testing of the alternator itself, as well as visual inspection of connecting belts, checking the battery charge, and testing the starter. All these pieces of the charging system can cause similar symptoms, to a thorough inspection is important. Of course, other parts of the systems could also be the culprit, which is why you need to bring it to Eastside Bavarian for inspection and testing.
If you are experiencing one or more of these symptoms, please contact Eastside Bavarian. You can schedule an appointment online or call us at 425-391-1990.
