Most mechanical functions are now dependent on electrical components. Your car is controlled by a complex arrangement of wires, sensors and computers working together. 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. At Christian Brothers Automotive, we have a full line of manufacturer certified diagnostic tools. The tools, scanners and equipment are the same or better than those used in dealership service departments.

Our ASE-certified technicians know your car’s electrical components and can quickly and effectively diagnose the problem. At Christian Brothers Automotive, we take a serious, targeted approach to pinpoint the problem and minimize the cost of your repair to one of the electrical components. Meaning, time is not wasted doing guesswork on your vehicle and your wait in the lobby will be minimal. If you prefer, we are more than happy to give you a ride home or to work in a courtesy shuttle.

Sometimes what seems like a major repair could merely be a software issue. Computers control your car. Starters, alternators, air conditioning systems and many other components are now computer controlled. Our ASE-certified technicians will make sure you do not waste 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 reality. If your battery is not receiving a charge, the alternator may need replacement. You will 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 respect your budget.
