Your battery is super important because it starts up your vehicle.

But once the vehicle is running, the alternator takes over and powers all electronic components.

The alternator also charges the battery at specific rates so you needn’t have to worry about your car not starting.

That means your alternator must be in top condition at all times, if you want to avoid getting a nasty surprise one morning when you try to start the engine and nothing happens.

Let Bakkes Motolek check your alternator.

90% of the time the alternator can be repaired and doesn’t need to be replaced.

Why you should get your alternator checked at Motolek

There are a number of benefits to having your alternator checked by the experts.


How often would you like to fork out cash for a new battery?

Probably not often.

But if you don’t have your alternator checked you might be forced to spend cash on a new battery far earlier than you’d have liked.

Here’s why…

If your alternator under-charges the battery, it causes sulphation in the battery’s cells, cutting the battery’s life in half.

On the other hand, if your alternator overcharges the battery, the battery might explode.

You’d agree that driving along the N2 and having your battery explode is less than desirable, not so?

Rather have your alternator checked. It won’t cost you a cent.


You’re in a hurry and you don’t want to be late for your appointment.

You jump into your vehicle and turn the key. Nothing.

Great, the battery died in the middle of the night.

If your alternator is undercharging, your battery’s power will decrease, until that dreaded moment when you need to be at an important appointment, and your car won’t start.

Don’t miss your appointment!

Bakkes Motolek will check your alternator for free. It takes only a minute, so it won’t eat into your valuable time.
