Electrical System & Alternator Service Explained

The alternator is a generator that converts engine power to electricity. It recharges the battery and powers electrical components as the engine runs. It requires routine inspections at major service intervals. Alternators with faulty pulleys can be repaired while defective alternators must be replaced to restore the electrical system to factory specifications. Diagnosing alternator problems can be tricky given the complexities of the electrical system, so be sure to bring your Subaru to Germain Subaru of Columbus, OH for certified alternator service.

Faulty Alternator Trouble Signs

Faulty alternators cause a variety of electrical performance problems. The trouble signs range from minor to severe, with the ultimate consequence being vehicle failure. Prevent getting left stranded with a faulty alternator by getting an inspection and corrective service if you notice any of these trouble signs:

  • Dim or flickering lights
  • Dashboard warning light
  • Electrical accessories experience performance issues or failure
  • Squealing from the alternator pulley under the hood at the engine's front
  • Vehicle stalling or difficult starting

Alternator Inspection

Verifying alternator problems requires a physical inspection and voltmeter test. A certified technician pops the hood to access the alternator and pulley. The pulley is often the culprit of faulty performance because the bearing can get wear and tear that reduces its ability to accept energy from the drive belt. We can repair the alternator pulley if needed. We will also check the wiring to ensure a strong connection with the battery. Alternators passing the physical inspection receive a voltage test to check electrical performance. Alternators failing the electrical test must be replaced.

Certified Subaru Alternator Replacement

We provide alternator replacement service according to certified Subaru standards. Service is completed by a certified technician and genuine OEM parts. We remove the old alternator, inspect the serpentine belt, install the new alternator with drive belt tension adjusted as needed to secure factory specifications.
