ClassicAuto Mechanics services brief

Many car owners don’t know when they need a mechanic or when they need an auto electrical repair shop. There is nothing wrong with this, it just makes it easier to know the difference when something goes wrong with your car or you need some extra work performed.

Of course, some auto mechanical services can do both auto electrician repairs, as well as the regular mechanics servicing and repairs, but there are distinct differences between the two types of jobs. With more and more technology on vehicles however, the lines between a mechanic and and auto electrician become blurred – what once was a general mechanic now relies on voltage, amps, ohms law etc. to carry out even basic tasks on vehicles.

As a modern technologically savvy mechanical workshop we can:

  • Perform electronic vehicle diagnostics, using multimeters, oscilloscopes and both OBD and dealer specific software scantools, to locate the source of your electrical problem, be it all the way from a check engine light to a failed window motor.
  • Perform diagnostics to locate problems in a whole range of modules such as ABS, SRS airbag systems and electronic steering.
  • Diagnose and replace faulty alternators, starter motors and batteries.
  • Perform testing and repairs on electronic fuel injection and ignition systems.
  • Diagnose and repair fuel system components such as electronic fuel pumps.
  • There are too many items on the car to list, but armed with the knowlege of electrical circuits, we can apply our skills to a whole range of electrical problems on a car.
  • Install and fix accessories such as radios, CB radios, lights and anti-theft systems.
  • Installing new sound systems, as well as rear vision cameras and sensors.
  • Programming your car keys for replacement or spare keys
