Whether you are in Mira Mesa, Kearny Mesa, Miramar, Sorrento Valley, Rancho Bernardo, Scripps Ranch or the surrounding communities or surrounding communities, you can rely on Miramar Automotive & Transmission for all of your alternator and charging system repair and service needs.
The alternator supplies power to the electrical system and charges the battery when the car is running. When your battery light comes on, or a charging system warning illuminates on your dash, it may be your alternator that is the culprit. Those warnings indicate an electrical problem that may very quickly leave you stranded. Before that happens, head over to Miramar Automotive & Transmission where we can test your charging system and repair it before you need to call a tow truck.
Signs of Potential Alternator or Charging System Issues:
- Dim headlights or dashboard lights
- Dashboard warning light is illuminated – battery symbol, ALT or GEN
- Grinding or whining noise
- Burnt rubber odor
- Vehicle not starting promptly, or not starting at all
