Automotive Charging Systems Service & Repair

Late-model vehicles have advanced systems and accessories that place a massive demand on your automotive charging system.

You can trust the certified mechanics at your local All Pro Servicenter to quickly diagnose and repair any charging system failure, getting you and your car back on the road again.

Our Auto Technicians Can Repair Any Charging Issue

Alternator Replacements

The alternator in your car or truck is the heart of the charging system. Over the past thirty years, cars have evolved to include increasingly sophisticated computer-driven ignition and fuel injection systems that are highly reliant on a healthy charging system. Combined with the rapid increase in automotive accessories such as high-output car headlights, infotainment systems, and heated seats, demands on your car or truck’s alternator have never been greater.

Bad alternator symptoms are not always easy to see or hear. While bad bushing and bearings will create an unpleasant noise as the serpentine belt spins the alternator, the various internal components may result in battery overcharging or undercharging. When this happens, your battery warning light will come on, and you should seek automotive assistance promptly. An undercharged battery will eventually drain, and your car will shut off. While an overcharged battery can literally boil and completely fail, again stranding you on the road.

When you come to any of our six convenient Des Moines metro locations with concerns about your changing system, our experienced techs will quickly spot any signs of a failing alternator and confirm it with our state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment. If your alternator is failing, All Pro Servicenter will install a quality replacement alternator that will provide you with years of faithful service.

Installing New Car Batteries

Just as modern advancements and luxuries in cars have placed great demands on alternators, they also demand a lot from your car’s battery. Start-stop technology especially places repeated demands on your car as it restarts at stop lights in traffic. Signs of a bad car battery may mimic other issues, such as a failing starter. It is a good idea to have your vehicle looked at by an All Pro auto service specialist before you end up with a dead car battery.

Just as with all of our auto repair services, you can trust All Pro Servicenter mechanics to use high-quality replacement batteries that meet or exceed OEM specifications, ensuring that your car and its accessories have a reliable and long-lasting source of power for many miles to come.
