Alternator & Car Starter Repair

At Goodyear Auto Service, we’re here to help if you feel you’re having issues starting your vehicle. We’ll begin with an inspection of your alternator and starter, then run a diagnostic of the voltage between the vehicle’s battery, starter and alternator. If repairs are needed, we’ll recommend replacements with costs before beginning the services.


The more you want to see and do, the more you need to know your car will start when you need it to. So, if you’re starting to suspect a problem with your starter or alternator, come see one of our Goodyear Auto Service technicians for a check.

  • Your car simply won’t start
  • The headlights and dashboard lights are more dim than normal

What Does a Car Alternator and Starter Do?

Your starter is what gets your car running—a crucial component to keeping your life humming and on schedule. And your alternator helps charge your battery and distribute electricity throughout the vehicle. Without these components running properly, your car won’t turn on and stay on.

How Often Should an Alternator or Starter be Replaced?

At Goodyear Auto Service, we recommend coming in to see us for an alternator and starter check whenever you have trouble starting your car or sustaining power.
