Recent Auto Electricians reviews

Very professionally done. Very happy with the service Darryl has provided. Highly recommended

I need dash cam installation


Darryl is a professional and hard-working specialist. It’s not easy to install a reverse camera kit and I could hardly find a technician at this piece. Darryl studied the instructions and wiring work, putting lots of effort to get the fitting done decently. He’s so nice and helpful to make sure the wires are “hidden” properly and no single screw was left off after the work. I’m so grateful to him and truly appreciate his professionalism and kindness. I shall ask his help again when I get my dash camera. Thanks Darryl!!

Install reverse camera kit


Very professional and he set up the camera and explained how to use it. The job was completed quickly and he ensured the car was clean before he left. Great job Darryl, Thank you very much.

Dash cam front and rear.


Thank you so much Darryl! Excellent work and true professional installation and service. I really appreciated that it was raining heavily, and it got pretty late in the evening - but Darryl still made an effort to come and help me install the new dashcam. He then took time carefully guide me through the set up process on my phone, gave me some tips of how to use the model. Not to mention his thorough wiring that made the whole dashcam system almost invisible! Once again, thank you so much Darryl. No wonder why you got 5 star reviews all over the place

Dash cam installation


Great job installing two Garmin dash cam minis (to front and rear) on my Giulia. Professional throughout, arrived a bit late but maintained good communication to inform me and keep me up to date, very neat and tidy work, took time to listen to what I wanted and explain things to me, no cables showing other than which can’t be avoided, can’t imagine a better job being done of it so very happy and would definitely use again and/or recommend to others 👍🏾

Top Auto Electricians related questions

Auto electrical services will cost between £70 - £130 on Airtasker, depending on the complexity of the problem. Your auto technician 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 vehicle 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
  • The 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.

Auto electrical problems can occur when components need repair or replacement. These parts include the engine (battery, alternator, starter motor, EFI), safety programs (ABS), and general electrics (windows, doors, mirrors). An automotive electrician can also assist with the 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 vehicle won’t start. With less overheads, mobile services can work out cheaper than an auto electrical service in a workshop.

What does an auto electrician do?

Automotive electricians perform diagnostics, repairs, and upgrades on auto electrical systems and other components of vehicles. These parts include batteries, alternators, starter motors, and lighting systems through to auto electrics such as cruise control, windscreen wipers, power windows, and mirrors (plus everything in between). 

If you’re interested in entering this field, on-the-job training can help you get the skills you need. Then, you can find auto electrician jobs on Airtasker once you’re ready to take on auto electrical work. 

It’s not mandatory to have specialised training or certification to become an auto electrician, but certain areas in the industry may require it for employment. Professionals typically enter this industry through on-the-job training, formal education, a combination of both, or just a family-run business. A full UK driving licence may also be required for those who work first-hand with auto electrics, particularly those who operate lorries or buses.

Before accepting an offer from a Tasker, it's important to confirm that they have the relevant electrical licence and insurance to ensure you receive high-quality service. 

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 electrical businesses 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 an 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 technician 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 technician 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. 

Car electrics

Having trouble with auto electrics such as central locking, cruise control, windscreen wipers, power windows and mirrors? Your auto technician 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 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 vehicle to a safe location for further work.

Hard wire a dash cam to car. I have the hard wire kit and cams. Car is a ford galaxy. 12V sockets don't work so this is reason for hard wire. If they did work I wouldn't need it hard wired. Come on people a little common sense. Also I have all parts needed so you don't need to charge me for parts and I don't live in ULEZ zone so I won't pay that either. Need job done as soon as possible. Either today or tomorrow morning. - Due date: Flexible
