Automobile electric services concern the installation, repair, replacement and maintenance of vehicle power and electrical components. Most of these companies specialize in starters, alternators, electric fuel pumps and ignition systems. Automobile electric services also specialize in the maintenance and repair of electric car engines and systems in most vehicles.
These shops will often provide roadside assistant for vehicles that have lost power or have computer problems. They sometimes provide on-the-spot diagnostics and replacement or repair of fuses, cables, wiring, and other parts needed to get a vehicle running again. If the roadside assistance can't help they will get the vehicle into a shop, and there they will be able to provide more options for repairs.
Automobile electric service specialists are often certified by the manufacturer of the vehicle to work on that specific make or model. These technicians should have gone to school for a long period to become automobile electricians, and are therefore very qualified to wire vehicles. They should also be able to handle all of the electronics on a vehicle, from the connectors to the computers.
Automobile electric service shops often work with repair or body shops if they need to remove panels or drill holes. This sometimes needs to be done in order to install wiring or cables for the electric systems, so the vehicle will look the same as before the repairs were made. These companies will also work with paint shops so they can match any work they do with the original paint color that is on the vehicle.
Automobile electric specialists provide services to people who need help with their electrical wiring, cables, or connectors, as well as providing general maintenance for electric and gas vehicles' power systems.
