Alternator Inspection & Charging System Service

BMW Charging System, Alternator, and Battery Service in St. Louis, MO

At BMW of West St. Louis, we’ve noticed over the years that seasonal change is prime time for essential component failure. This is because seasonal temperature extremes and temperature change across seasons wreak havoc on components prone to wear and tear. Automotive batteries are vital for engine starting and powering accessories but the battery has a relatively short service life. Given the interrelationship between the battery and alternator, very often a special testing procedure must be implemented to determine the root cause of the electrical problems.

Overview of Your Charging System: Alternator & Battery

At BMW of West St. Louis, charging system service features highly qualified service experts, specialized electrical testing equipment, and a proven testing protocol. The service technician begins by inspecting the battery and testing its cold-cranking amps and reserve capacity if it is in good physical condition.

If the battery is in excellent condition at peak performance, the service expert will then test the alternator. More often than not by this stage of the service, the service technician has identified the root cause as a dead battery, defective alternator, or faulty battery terminals. The defective component will then receive the corrective maintenance or repair that restores peak performance and factory specifications to your BMW’s charging system.
