Most mechanical functions nowadays depend on electrical components. Your car is controlled by a complex network of wires, sensors, and computers working together. If communication along these wires is interrupted, it could have major consequences for several components of your vehicle.
If your vehicle seems to be having any electrical problems, the dedicated professionals at C.A.R.S. are ready to hear from you. At C.A.R.S., we focus on an honest, transparent, service-centered approach that keeps our customers behind the wheel when it comes to the health of their vehicles. We’re ready to assess your car or truck and get you back on the road as quickly, safely, and affordable as possible.
Our Approach to Electrical Issues
Electrical systems are more complicated than ever, but they’re more reliable too, and easier to diagnose and repair with the proper equipment. At C.A.R.S., we have a full line of manufacturer-certified diagnostic tools. The tools, scanners, and equipment are the same as those used in dealership service departments or better.
Our ASE-certified technicians know your car’s electrical components and can diagnose problems quickly and effectively. At C.A.R.S., we take a serious, targeted approach to pinpoint the problem and minimize the cost of repairs. This means that time is not wasted on guesswork and your wait in the lobby is as short as we can make it. And if you prefer, we’re more than happy to give you a ride home or to work in a courtesy shuttle.
Common Electrical Issues
Sometimes what seems like a major failure is merely a software bug. Computers control your car. Starters, alternators, air conditioning systems, and many other components are now computer-driven. Our technicians will make sure you don’t waste money on diagnostics and parts.
Your battery could also be the culprit of an electrical problem. A loose cable, a faulty wire, or a dirty connection could appear to be a bigger problem than it is. If your battery isn’t receiving a charge, the alternator might need replacement. But you’ll receive a full system check, not just a recommendation for parts you might not need. We check the basics before we recommend any major repairs. We care about your car and we respect your budget.
