Top Auto Electrician related questions
What does an auto electrician do?
An auto electrician specialises in auto electrical systems services and repairs and components of cars. From batteries, alternators, starter motors, and lighting systems through to car electrics such as cruise control, windscreen wipers, power windows, and mirrors (plus everything in between).
What are some common auto electrical problems?
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, and finally, general electrics like central locking, windows, stereos, and air-conditioning. You may be able to avoid more complex auto electrical problems by taking action when warning lights appear on your dash.
What causes electrical problems in cars?
There are many electrical components in new cars. The engine (battery, alternator, starter motor, EFI), safety programs (ABS), and general electrics (windows, doors, mirrors) are just a few. And they all may need repair or replacement over the life of the vehicle. An automotive electrician can also assist with replacement of aesthetic electrical components in the dash and console.
What are the advantages of hiring a mobile auto electrician near me?
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, their service often works out cheaper than an auto electrician in a workshop.
How much does a standard auto electrical service cost?
Hiring an auto electrician near you will cost between $80-$120 on Airtasker, depending on 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.
Do I need a specialist licence for auto electrical service?
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 does an auto electrician 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.
Having trouble with car 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.
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 electrician. 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 automotive 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.
