Alternator and Start Services

Your vehicle’s starter is very aptly named. You can’t start your vehicle without it. It uses the battery’s power to spin the flywheel that gives your car the jump it needs to turn over. Meanwhile, your car’s alternator recharges the battery while you drive. These components work tirelessly every time you use your car. As such, they will require maintenance and repairs. Both of these parts also start breaking down with only subtle signs. At the first sign of an issue, bring it to GL Moore Tire Pros in Springfield, MO for accurate and efficient repairs. Call us today to schedule your appointment. We’ll conduct a precise inspection to identify the issue and get to work on your repairs.

How Do I Know My Alternator Needs Repairs?

You’ll know your alternator is dead if you hear a faint clicking sound when you attempt to start your car. Your car will most likely be unable to turn on because the alternator wasn’t charging the battery. And you need your battery to have charge to turn over the engine. Other culprits of a failing alternator include flickering or dim lights, your Check Engine Light coming on, a consistent dead battery, other failed electronics, or you find yourself needing to jump your vehicle more frequently when you start it. It is still relatively safe to drive your vehicle, but not ideal as you run the risk of stalling or being stuck without power.
