Whenever your engine is running, the alternator charges your battery and supplies additional electric power for the vehicle’s electrical systems. It is attached to the engine and is driven by a drive belt. Typically, an alternator is a maintenance-free unit, but it can have issues.
On average, an alternator can last for 8-12 years without any repairs. However, if an alternator fails, the car may still run on battery power alone, but only for a short time. It will die as soon as the battery charge is depleted leaving you stranded with a car that won’t start.

My older car has no form of reversing camera installed as standard. Being worried about my kids when backing out, I looked for a solution. A mate sent me to Autospark for some help.
Long story short, I had a unit fitted in less than a day at Bullsbrook. Great work, thanks for the fast turnaround.
After hearing so many times on TV the Police asking for Dash Cam footage, I decided to take the plunge and get one for my own peace of mind. Thank goodness for the knowledgeable staffer at Redcliffe for the great advice and fitting a unit to my sedan.
Great help & great work.
I needed to get an Immobilser fitted to my car to make it compliant. I dropped into Myaree for some advice and an idea on what was involved and the cost. Long story short, happy with the guys at Myaree for fitting a decent unit to my car.
It was pointed out to me that a brake and headlight on my old Volvo was not working. After dropping into Autospark, I decided to replace all the globes on my car for newer versions.
So much brighter and didn't cost anywhere near what I thought. Very glad I did and a big thanks for the service & advice offered.
Thanks to the guys at Joondalup for testing my failing Air Con unit. I thought I was in for a replacement, but it turned out after a test to just need a regas instead.
I was really fearing a big bill, but very (very) happy with the result. The honest service was really appreciated.
The guys at Autospark Joondalup were so helpful in sorting out my car, which was not starting sometimes. I had no idea, but they said the starter motor needed replacing and took care of it that day. I am so grateful to them for a job well done.
I took our car to Autospark Canning Vale because it was not starting sometimes. After a few quick tests, it turned out that our starter motor was faulty. I booked it the next day and had it replaced, easy! Happy to recommend them to anyone.
A tip of the hat to the staff at Myaree for a service to my SUV. I have an older Honda which was well due and I was most impressed with the great service it received, in fact, I would say it was the best I have ever experienced. A credit to Autospark Myaree.
I had noticed when driving at night a few other drivers were flashing the lights at us. A visit to Autospark revealed one of my headlights was not working. In short order, they guys replaced a simple bulb and the problems were gone. Highly recommend Autospark Bullsbrook for great service.
The guys at Autospark were great with some excellent advice on power options for our weekend adventures. I didn't know much about Battery Packs, but you guys sure did, so thank you very much for some great information on the Toppo unit we purchased.
