Alternator Repair in Newport News, VA

Our Approach

The alternator charges your battery and supplies electricity to your entire vehicle. This means a bad alternator can cause major problems – it can also leave you stranded. Your alternator can fail in a few different ways including no charging, low charging or overcharging.

A system that is not charging is indicated by a dead battery and subsequent no start condition. Undercharging is usually indicated by dim headlights, slow cranking, or a dash warning light. Overcharging can also turn on the dash warning light, as well as cause your vehicle's electronics to act crazy.

Of course, all of these problems can be caused by components other than the alternator. And that is why professional testing is so important. After all, you don't want to spend several hundred dollars on an alternator only to find the battery was the culprit.
Here at B&L automotive, we can test your charging system and keep your vehicle on the road.
