Top Auto Electrician related questions

Auto electricians cost around $120-$220 on Airtasker, depending on the type of service and the complexity of the problem. Your auto electrician will confirm their quote after they’ve performed a full diagnostic check on your car and determined the extent of the issue.

The most common sign of an auto electrical problem is a car that won’t start, followed closely by the failure of general electrics. 

Common auto electrical problems are split into four main areas:

  • The charging system, which includes the battery or alternator
  • The ignition system, which could mean a fault with the starter motor
  • The lighting system, which includes headlights, brake lights, and indicators
  • The general electrics like central locking, windows, stereos, and air conditioning 

When warning lights appear on your dash, it might be time to book auto electrical services and get your car checked. By taking action right away, you can avoid more complex auto electrical problems down the road.

Auto electrical problems can be caused by the engine (battery, alternator, starter motor, EFI), safety programs (ABS), or general electrics (windows, doors, mirrors). And they all may need repair or replacement over the life of the vehicle. Aside from vehicle servicing, automotive electricians can assist with replacement of aesthetic electrical components in the dash and console.

A mobile auto electrician can meet you at a convenient place to fix your problem quickly and easily. This is especially helpful if your car won’t start. With less overheads, mobile auto electricians often work out cheaper than an auto electrician in a workshop.

Auto electricians specialise in the installation, maintenance, and repair of automotive electricals. These include batteries, air conditioning, alternators, starter motors, and lighting systems. What’s more, auto electricians work on car electrics such as cruise control, windscreen wipers, power windows, and mirrors (plus everything in between).

For certain types of tasks, you may need to enquire as to what auto electrical licenses may be required to undertake your task as this can vary. Please make sure that you confirm that a Tasker has the relevant electrical licence and insurance before accepting an offer.

What do auto electricians do?

Warning lights on your dash or flickering headlights may indicate an electrical issue, or perhaps your car just won’t start. Fortunately, many auto-electricians offer a mobile service to ensure you’re not left stranded on the side of the road if something unexpected happens. 

Here are some common issues that your auto electrician can help with:

Engine electrics and brakes

It’s important to act on any warning lights on your dash, especially your anti-lock braking system (ABS) to fix any issues before they become unsafe. Firstly, your auto electrician will use a diagnostics machine to review the health of your battery, alternator, and starter motor. 

  • A flat battery can be the cause of many electrical issues but fortunately, they’re easily replaced. However, if your battery isn’t holding charge, your auto electrician will consider whether the alternator (which charges the battery when the car is running) is working.

The starter motor may be the problem if your car won’t start, and this can either be repaired or replaced. An auto electrician can complete checks on fuel pumps and your electronic fuel injection (EFI) system to repair or improve your car’s engine. 

Auto electricals

Having trouble with auto electrics such as central locking, cruise control, windscreen wipers, power windows and mirrors? Your local auto electrician will check for blown fuses or short circuits to isolate and fix the problem.

Lighting systems

Functioning lighting systems are required for safety and legal reasons, so it’s important to have any issues fixed quickly. Lighting issues are often associated with the battery and alternator. 

Car security systems

Keep your vehicle safe and secure with a car alarm and immobiliser installed by a qualified auto sparky. An alarm acts as a deterrent to car thieves and an immobiliser ensures the engine won’t start if entry is gained to the vehicle. Plus, installing a dash cam and reversing camera is another smart safety and security measure.

Emergency roadside assistance

If you find yourself stranded with a car that won’t start, a mobile auto electrician near you can help you get back on the road sooner. Their vehicle is fully-equipped with the necessary tools to diagnose the problem, so they can repair many issues on the spot. For any complex problems, you’ll need to arrange a tow truck to take your car to a safe location for further work.

BMW aftermarket led headlight fauty code fix

$150

Docklands VIC, Australia

6th Jul 2024

Swapped a new pair of aftermarket led headlights for my BMW X1 e84(2011). Because I kept getting faulty messages of "Dipped beam right". and sometimes "Dipped beam left" The new low beams are working perfectly and are very bright. But the error codes kept showing up and is really driving me crazy... I heard that the light module needs to be recoded for the error messages/faulty codes to disappear, especially with aftermarket headlights. I do not have the tools and knowledge to do this. Need someone with experience to fix this.

Came on time. Fixed the issue efficiently.
