Top Mobile Auto Electrician related questions

As the name implies, a mobile auto electrician is one that isn’t “tied down” to one spot, even though they may have a shop. These electricians can and will go to a client’s location as long as it’s within a reasonable distance, to inspect and service the electrical systems of a client’s car.


A mobile auto electrician may arrive at a client’s home bearing only the essential tools or come with a service van that has the vital equipment, materials and replacement parts for your car’s electricals. 

If your headlamps, signal lamps or tail lamps don’t work, aren’t consistently bright, or your power windows and power door locks are on the fritz, a mobile electrician is the specialist to call. They will ask you about the nature of your car’s electrical issues, then inspect the starter motor, battery, alternator, wiring and spark plugs to find the root of the problem. 


After thoroughly checking your car’s electrical components, they will then repair or replace the erring part or component.

You may be able to find this specialised repair service provider at a car body repair shop in your town, as they sometimes work as freelancers that hire out their services to one or more service shops. Trying to find a good one in this manner will, however, take a lot of time and legwork. The best way to find one is to do it via Airtasker. You can post the details about your repair needs, and the most qualified auto electricians will come to you for the job.

The specialists you hire will only make the needed checks, diagnose the problem, remove old, worn and defective components to make way for and install new parts. The cost of new materials or elements will be shouldered by the client.

What do mobile auto electrician services include?

There are standard services a mobile auto electrician or sparky can do for you to ensure your motor works appropriately, and will, therefore, keep its conditions in accordance with the MOT. These services include thorough inspection and diagnosis of any electrical problems and performing the necessary repairs.


Diagnostic Equipment: Car Battery Check and Replacement
The most common electrical issue is a dead battery and is usually the culprit when your motor won’t start. If your car won’t turn over or conks out on occasion while driving, Taskers will inspect the battery. They can replace the dead battery with a new one which you must purchase, and will properly dispose of the dead battery.


Alternator Inspection and Replacement
If your motor won’t turn over and it so happens to be caused by a dead battery, that may not be the only problem. A dead battery could be the result of a damaged or non-working alternator. The alternator’s primary purpose is to power your car’s electrical system and ensure that the battery gets charged as the vehicle is running.


Should the alternator fail to charge the battery, this can drastically shorten the battery’s lifespan and cause it to drain out prematurely. You could be wasting money on a new battery every few months, no thanks to a bad alternator. Our Taskers, local auto electricians, can check if the alternator is contributing to your electrical problems and install a new one if necessary.


Fault Finding: Replacing Spark Plugs
It’s incredible how a small thing like a loose or defective spark plug can cause a long list of problems for your motor. With old, faulty or dirty spark plugs, you can have bad starts or engine misfires and rough idling that can lead to a drastic reduction of acceleration and gas mileage. Our Taskers can accurately determine if the problems your car is having are due to bad spark plugs, clean them or replace them.  


Replacing the Starter Motor
Another vital component to starting your car is, of course, the starter motor. If after intensive inspection of the battery, alternator and spark plugs do not unearth any problems, the issue may lie with the starter motor; Our Taskers can remove and inspect your car’s starter motor to determine whether it may yet be repaired or if it needs to be replaced. The service includes installation of a new starter, but the client must purchase the new starter motor.


Auto Electrical Repair: Fixing the Wiring
Your car’s wiring may have exposed, frayed wires which could cause grounds or short-circuits. These can result in your headlamps, taillamps, signal lamps, indoor lamps, power windows, and windscreen wipers to work erratically or not at all. Taskers can check the electrical wirings for damage, and perform simple repairs.
