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.

I have a 2009 peugeot 308 with an abs light on fault/error code is C1385 Intermittent fault - electric valves supply voltage fault C1385. After doing a bit of research online, I can safely say that the issue is with ABS Fuel Pump Relay or ABS ecu contacts and the ABS relay contacts. I would prefer to have it fixed rather than replacing parts because parts have to be ordered and it will take some time before they get delivered. Thanks

Ebike battery repair


O'Connor ACT, Australia

2nd Mar 2024

CALLING ALL EBIKE/ESCOOTER/BICYCLE REPAIRSMEN/SHOPS ETC -I have 2x ebikes that need repairs and some attention. I would like a decent level of accuracy in your quotation please, if it includes parts etc - I have about 10 bicycles that all need some minor repairs/servicing. You'd be most welcome to come take a look in person for all this work (2xebikes and 5-10 bicycles). I would prefer if you could give me a 'bare bones' service - concentrating and utilizing your expertise on what I cannot do nor understand (batteries/gears/shocks mainly). Ebike problem details: a) Fixing the battery on a "NCM Prague Ebike" (21speed) Ill try get some pics uploaded but there is a hole (where I presume the 'on/off' switch should be, i assume its been pushed/forced into the battery caseing. It's worth noting - you may be able to tell me if the battery is worth trying to fix at all - may be better to buy a new one but that would be a bummer, as you know they aint cheap. b) 2nd ebike general service/battery test on a 'Wisper 905e ebike' (7 speed) Okay - looking forward to hearing from you or if you have a mate that is real good with bikes/ebikes please hook a brother up! Peace
