When your vehicle has electrical problems, if you’re like most people, you begin to feel just a little bit panicky. Some electrical repair problems are simple. Some, such as starter repair problems, are more complex. Correcting electrical problems can be expensive—but not always—so don’t fret quite yet!
If your 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 can probably 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.
Starter repair is very complex. The solenoid—the magnetic coils that distribute power to the starter and provide the power that opens automatic door locks—is also a prime culprit when it comes to electrical issues. Armchair mechanics can misdiagnose a bad solenoid as a bad starter or dead battery, since a bad solenoid prevents the engine from turning over when you’re trying to start your vehicle.

My Ford wouldn’t start so I had it towed to Chuck’s for a bad starter. They got me in that day and replaced my starter and changed my oil after they noticed I hadn’t changed it in almost a year. They even had it fixed by the time I got off work! Great work and very thorough. I’ll be back for sure!
greeted me and asked to take a look at my car. He tested the drainage for leaks, and then again for any blockages. After coming to the conclusion that whatever it was that caused the blockage was no longer an issue, he gave a recommendation for how to solve the odor (they didn’t have the equipment to do it there).
He gave very detailed instructions on what to tell the detailer, what kind of machines/methods to use, etc. He then asked if I wanted him to write any of it down since it was a seemingly detailed list for someone who had no idea what he was talking about! From the time I got there to time leaving, the whole process took about 10/15 mins. He was so polite, friendly and helpful. Definitely recommend coming here for any repairs needed!
