Electrical Auto Repair

If your automotive service need involves your electrical system keep in mind that when the automotive industry was in its infancy, it used electricity only to ignite inside the automotive engine. By the late 1920′s, the automotive electric starter replaced the hand crank, electric headlights made acetylene lamps obsolete and the braying of the automotive electric horn drowned out the squeak of the hand-squeezed air horn. Today, automotive vehicles require an elaborate electrical configuration of circuits just to produce, store, and distribute all the electricity required for simple everyday operation. Our automotive repair shop offers the following automotive electrical repair services:

    • Batteries
    • Driveability
    • Diagnosis
