When you experience auto electrical repair problems, you might begin to feel just a little bit panicky. Correcting electrical problems can be expensive—but not always—so don’t fret quite yet!

If your auto electrical repair problem involves alternators, bad battery terminals, blown fuses, dead batteries fusible links, or faulty switches, we can get you back on the road for less than you might imagine.

Other not-as-expensive electrical problems include bad spark plugs and spark plug wires. (A tune up can solve these routine electrical issues.)

But more-involved electrical problems can take longer to diagnose, and a lot of expertise to solve. These are, of course, pricier fixes.

Hybrid automobiles can have costly battery-replacement issues.

The solenoid contains the magnetic coils that distribute power to the starter and provide the power that opens automatic door locks. This can be a prime culprit when it comes to auto electrical repair. Armchair mechanics can easily misdiagnose a bad solenoid as a bad starter or dead battery. This happens because a bad solenoid prevents the engine from turning over when you’re trying to start your vehicle.

I dropped my work van off for an electrical diagnosis. They isolated and fixed the problem and had it back out the door with a short turn around. Very pleased with their work as I have been in the past.
