Electrical Related Services

Every vehicle relies on a fully functional electrical system. Your average passanger vehicle has roughly 55 pounds or roughly 26 miles of wire. To troubleshoot your vehicle's electrical system, our expert technicians use state-of-the-art, specialized diagnostic equipment to properly pin point an electrical issue. With so many sub-systems in vehicles today, our technicians are able to properly diagnose and trace any problem with any system. Vehicles today rely heavily on computer communication. This can be from a body control module talking to the engine control module, that the outside air temperature sensor is reading colder than normal and will need to set a different fuel trim. With that in mind, a complete engine diagnostics may be necessary to troubleshoot sophisticated systems or complex electrical problems.

Your Vehicle's Battery:

The battery is one of the most important components of your vehicles electrical system so we make sure to start here and provide a full analysis of the battery and also the charging system. Your battery has many components that it works with directly and needs to be looked at every once in a while. The battery usually has a plastic casing that encases fluid and plates. Two of these plates are connected to the battery posts. These posts should be clear of any build up and be clean for good contact. These posts connect to the terminal ends that allow voltage to travel to electrical components. Making sure all these items are checked when testing and checking a battery and its system are crucial.  With every battery check we also make sure all these items are in good working order. Other major components that can be the cause of battery problems are the alternator, the starter, and starting solenoid. Many new vehicles also have complex computer systems that need special equipment to diagnose properly. The complex computer systems can control such things as your braking system, steering, vital sensors and more. We carry and use only the latest diagnostic tools to ensure we pinpoint any electrical problem(s) that you vehicle may have.
