Expert Starter & Alternator Repair in North Carolina
At Tire Max, our mechanics are trained to handle any number of issues that may occur within your vehicle’s starting and charging system. From battery replacement to alternator repair, we will inspect your vehicle thoroughly to determine the cause of the issue and decide the best course of action.
Warning signs that your alternator requires repair or replacement will involve your vehicle’s electrical components. For example, a dashboard warning light may appear, or headlights may dim. In cases where the alternator begins making noise, it is possible that the belt is simply loose. Other times, the smell of burning rubber will signal a problem. No matter what symptoms you are experiencing, we can help. The next time you suspect alternator issues, allow us to take a look and help get you back on the road again.
Replacing Your Dead Battery
If you are having trouble starting your engine, you may need a battery replacement. Although new batteries generally perform well for the first three to five years before they are likely to malfunction, battery life can be shortened from extreme weather conditions or improper maintenance. Unless you have access to the right testing tools, there may be little warning that your battery needs to be replaced. Our staff has the necessary tools to review your battery’s performance, and we will guide you through a replacement if our results indicate that it is needed.
Starter Repair & Replacement
In addition to an inoperable engine, there are other factors that indicate a replacement is needed. If your starter is making a clicking sound that lasts momentarily or the crank is operating slowly, you may need to change your vehicle’s starter. We can look over your starter and review whether or not it is the culprit of current vehicular troubles. If you are unfamiliar with the type of starter your vehicle uses, we will help you find the right one for your vehicle make and model. Our goal is to get your vehicle running again.
