What is a car alternator?

A car alternator keeps your car's battery charged, which is obviously important because a charged battery starts your car and powers everything electrical within it. It does so using a drive belt (sometimes referred to as a serpentine belt) to convert the mechanical energy of the car's rotating crankshaft into electricity through a process of induction.

What are the possible signs of a faulty alternator?

  • Your car is difficult or slow to start.
  • Growling, whirring, whining or squealing noises are emanating from your car's engine.
  • Your car’s interior and exterior lights seem too dim, blink erratically, gradually fade, suddenly get brighter or don’t come on at all.
  • The red light on your car’s dash with the image of a battery (or the words ALT or GEN) becomes illuminated.
  • Your speedometer has stopped working.
  • You can smell rubber burning.
  • Your car fails a multimeter test at a garage.

What is the cause of a faulty car alternator?

  • The component, a brush, which maintains constant electrical contact with the spinning alternator, becomes worn.
  • The voltage regulator, which makes sure that the electrical charge is passed to the battery at the correct voltage, fails.

How long does a car alternator last?

  • On average, a car alternator can last for 8-12 years without needing for any repairs.

How much does it cost to repair a faulty alternator?

  • On average, it costs between £150-£300 to repair or replace a broken car alternator depending on the vehicle.
  • Refurbished car alternators are available but do not offer that much of a cost saving.

About Fiat

Fiat is an Italian automaker and part of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles through its subsidiary FCA Italy S.p.A, the largest automobile manufacturer in Italy. The company was formed in January 2007 when Fiat reorganised its automobile business, and can trace its history back to 1899 when the first Fiat, or as it was called then, Fabbrica Italiana Automobili Torino automobile, was produced.

Fiat's main market is Europe, specifically in Italy. Historically successful at producing city cars and superminis, currently Fiat has a range of models focused on those two segments. Fiat doesn’t currently offer any large family car, nor an executive car - you can say they are pretty exclusively in the urban car camp.

This Italian brand offers cars with bags of character and style. They’ve even developed new engine technology, such as the “Twin Air” system, which has placed Fiat ahead of others in their field. A partnership with Mazda has boosted the range as well with the introduction of a rear-wheel drive convertible sports car.

What do you need from your garage?

You may live within walking distance of a garage which offers most of the services you need. However, by sticking with the nearest garage in Strathaven you could be missing out on a better deal. What if a garage with a collection / drop off service or courtesy car could do the same job at a good price, without the inconvenience of losing your car for the duration of the repair? BookMyGarage allows you to search for local garages which offer this facility, and compare their prices, all in one session.
