The alternator turns the mechanical energy from the engine’s rotating crank shaft into electricity. The alternator is responsible for keeping your battery fully charged and powering all of your car’s accessories.

Your alternator plays a critical role in your vehicle’s operation.

When things go wrong, you may have a dash light that comes on for a brief moment or it could be headlights are not as bright as they used to be. Maybe there’s an odd smell or a growling sound coming from under the hood.

These are possible symptoms of alternator problems and a sign that your car is in need of some attention. An alternator problem can cause slow starts and even a dead car.


Bedford Wheels offers full testing, diagnostics and replacement of alternators and other rotating electrics.

Starter Motor
The starter motor performs a vital operation in starting the vehicle. To make an engine start it must be turned at some speed so that it sucks fuel and air into the cylinders, and compresses it. Your starter motor does the initial turning of the engine. It is an electro-mechanical device and is obviously subject to wear and tear.

We offer testing and replacement of starter motors.
