Alternator Repair on the Front Range of Colorado

The job of your vehicle’s alternator is to help recycle energy from your engine to recharge the battery to keep your vehicle running. If the alternator isn’t working, your vehicle’s battery will use up all of its reserved energy and will eventually die because it isn’t being recharged. A common sign that there is a problem with your vehicle’s alternator is trouble starting your vehicle. If your vehicle’s battery is dead, it won’t start and you may notice that other parts of your vehicle aren’t working, such as the radio and power locks. The battery will usually work properly without much maintenance unless there is a problem with the starting and charging system. Your vehicle’s check engine light will usually turn on when a faulty alternator is detected.

At EAS Tire & Auto in Littleton, CO, our ASE certified technicians can accurately diagnose and repair battery and alternator issues on all makes and models of vehicles. Our experts will perform a free battery and charging system test to determine if the issue is the battery or the charging system.
