Ryan was amazing. Completed the job precisely and also arrived early! Would definitely recommend Ryan for any other jobs.

Dash cam installation


Installed 2 Channel Dash Cams in 2 vehicles, excellent work and easy to deal with.

I need dash cam installation


Good communication. Arrived a little late but it wasn't a problem. He ended up staying way longer than he thought the job would take but did it without complaint all the same. Hard worker. Great job. Very satisfied. Went out of his way to make sure all the cables were neatly hidden. He's also quite capable of improvising. When the cable I had wasn't long enough he managed to find a solution to allow the amp to be connected. Tested everything worked properly to my satisfaction before moving to the next task. I'm more than happy to recommend him to anyone needing the same work done.

Matt was fantastic. Super fast communication. Takes the time to guide you through the functionality of your setup as he clearly knows his stuff in and out. In particular however, I was really happy with how neatly he completed the installation. Would absolutely recommend him to anyone needing a dashcam installed! Thanks again 👍🏽

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.

Rear View Mirror Reverse Camera Installation


Pakenham VIC, Australia

3rd Mar 2024

I have 2 tasks that needs to be completed. 1. I have a Gator Reverse Camera HD Mirror Display kit (model : GRV90MKT) which needs to be installed on a Pajero 2008 model to direct power. The kit includes 9" Touch Screen rear view mirror, Reverse Camera, 6.5m Camera cable, 12V Cigarette lighter adaptor and mirror mounting hardware. There is an existing rear view mirror reverse camera system already installed which needs to be removed along with the cabling. This is connected to the fuse box, maybe you can do the same for the new kit as I do not want to use the cigarette lighter adapter for power. 2. I need an aftermarket fog light switch installed into the dash. The switch is already in use, just needs to be mounted into the dash that I have specified. I have a glue gun which can be used to glue the switch in. Please see photos. Please provide a quote for this. Thank you.

Marvin is an excellent mechanic. Installed the reverse camera with expertise and found other dodgy wiring work done by other Airtaskers which was not secure. Five star Airtasker
