The repair of the starters and the alternators is a popular service at the automotive market due to the several reasons:
- the repair is more financially attractive to a client, besides, the repaired units are as reliable as the new ones;
- the mentioned units fail quite often – in a view of the ambient atmosphere impact, the fair wear and tear, or the mistakes during a vehicle operation;
- the repair of the starters and the alternators is not complicated and doesn’t require many special tools, besides, the components are mostly always available.
The alternator of a modern car – rather complex unit integrated into the car board network by a digital bus, and controlled through the different protocols. For that reason, the diagnostics of the modern alternators requires the usage of the special equipment.
The design of a starter, in comparison to an alternator, remains mostly the same all the time, yet, the diagnostics of its electric elements (electric motor and solenoid valve) cannot be effected without the special devices.
MSG Equipment offers the special equipment line for the diagnostics of the starters and the alternators that solves three tasks:
Express diagnostics – without unit dismounting
This equipment line can check if the unit operates well and if there’s need to dismount it from a car to find out the failure reason and for the further repair.
Diagnostics of the dismounted units
This line includes the test benches that make it possible to reveal the defected unit assembly and make the control test after the repair to be sure in its quality.
Diagnostics of the unit assemblies
The testers of this line checks the unit assemblies: diode bridges, stator winding coils, voltage regulators, starter solenoid valve. The testers are used when the diagnostics of the unit is not possible at the test bench due to the mechanical damages of the unit. That’s why the unit is dismantled first to enable the diagnostics of its assemblies. It eliminates the multiple disassembling/assembling of the units to find the failed unit assemblies.
The software that is updated free of charge allows the equipment remain relevant during the entire equipment life span.
When you buy the equipment from MSG Equipment, you get the costless technical support during the warranty period as well as once it ends.
MSG Equipment also offers the training course ‘Diagnostics and repair of starters and alternators’. Completing the course, you’ll know how to test the mentioned units with the usage of the modern equipment and how to recover their performance capacity.

MS005 – multifunctional test bench designed for the quick and the accurate diagnostics of the automotive alternators and starters of the passenger cars and the trucks. The test bench software is regularly updated for the expanding of the range of diagnosed units.
MS008 – multifunctional test bench designed for the quick and the accurate diagnostics of the automotive alternators and starters of the passenger cars and the trucks, as well as of voltage regulators separately from alternators. The test bench software is regularly updated for the expanding of the range of diagnosed units.
MS002 COМ – multifunctional test bench designed for the quick and the accurate diagnostics of the automotive alternators and starters of the passenger cars and the light commercial vehicles.
MS004 COМ – multifunctional test bench designed for the quick and the accurate diagnostics of the automotive alternators and starters of the passenger cars and the light commercial vehicles.
The test bench enables the evaluation of the technical condition of the 12/24V automotive alternators of passenger cars and light commercial vehicles, 12V ‘start-stop’ alternators and 24V I-ELOOP alternators.
Tester MS016 is a compact multifunctional device for express diagnostics of automotive 12/24V alternators, reversible 12V alternators of Stop-Start system, starters without removing them from a car, and voltage regulators separately from alternators. The device reads and saves the data transmitted via the LIN bus of a vehicle.
The purpose of diagnostic cable MS-33503 is to provide the connection between the tester MS016 and an automotive unit, whether it is tested directly on a car or on the test bench that provides its fixation and power supply.
MS015 is a simple and user-friendly device for express diagnostics of 12V automotive alternators with digital or PWM-controlled voltage regulators without removing them from the cars. The tester is intended for both small and big car repair shops.
The tester imitates the proper operation of alternator for voltage regulator to enable the accurate evaluation of the voltage regulator performance and the selection of the relevant regulator for replacement.
