Most mechanical functions are now dependent on electrical components. Your car is controlled by a complex arrangement of wires, sensors and computers working together. They’re talking to each other all the time. If communication along those wires is interrupted, it could have major consequences for several components of your vehicle.
Electrical systems are now more complicated, but more reliable and easier to diagnose and remedy with the proper equipment. Every Christian Brothers Automotive location has a full line of manufacturer certified diagnostic tools. The tools, scanners and equipment is the same or better than those used in dealership service departments. And you’ll have experts operating them to fix your vehicle.
Our ASE certified technicians know your car’s electrical components and can quickly and effectively diagnose the problem and get you back on the road. Like everything we do at Christian Brothers, we take a serious, targeted approach to pinpoint the problem and minimize the cost of your repair.
This means no guesswork for your vehicle and no long wait for you in the lobby of the dealership for service. (We’ll be glad to give you a ride home or to work in the courtesy shuttle.)
Sometimes what seems like a major repair could really just be a software issue. Computers control your car. Starters, alternators, air conditioning systems and many other components are now computer controlled. Your car could just need a software update. And Christian Brothers expert, ASE certified technicians will make sure you don’t spend unnecessary money on diagnostics and parts.
Your battery could also be the culprit of an electrical system problem. A loose battery cable, a faulty wire or a dirty connection could appear to be a bigger problem than they actually are. If your battery isn’t receiving a charge, the alternator may need replacement. You’ll receive a full system check, not just a recommendation for parts you may not need. We check the basics before recommending a major repair. We care about your car and we care about your budget.
It doesn’t matter what problem your car’s electrical system is experiencing, Christian Brothers will get you back on the road quickly.
I took my car to this shop to have it worked on. My car needed a new alternator. They charged me half of what the dealership quoted. Plus Christian Brothers provided a free courtesy inspection on my car. Turns out my tires need to be replaced. Good to know before winter comes around again. I would highly recommend this automotive shop. It was a clean shop. The people were friendly and the price was right.

I recently had an electrical repair and another great experience with Christian Brothers Automotive. The diagnosis and service were quick and less than I expected to repair. This is the third vehicle that I have had serviced and the level of service has been consistently great. I trust and have confidence in this automotive business. They do what they state they will do, and I would highly recommend them.

I had an alternator go out as I was driving home from a trip. I arrived at Christian Brothers Automotive at about 3 p.m. and three hours later was on the road again. In that time the employees worked diligently to get the best possible price on an alternator for me. Each person I encountered was unbelievably friendly and helpful. They made me feel confident that the repair had been done and done well. I wish I lived closer to Weatherford because I would do business there all the time!
