ELECTRICAL FAULT FINDING/ REPAIR and PROPER DIAGNOSTICS !  What do I mean by proper? Simply that I have been an electrical specialist for twenty years, Im not a mechanic or tyre fitter (with respect, each to his own) who is trying to do electronics. Diagnosing faults requires a lot more skill than just plugging a code reader in, and you cannot just put out a warning light either!

I don't change brake pads, cam belts, fit tyres nor exhausts. So don't expect to have your car diagnosed  correctly by people who dabble with diagnostics! ! ! Yes I frequently  have to sort out problems made worse by such instances and it costs you more!

CLASSIC CAR WORK also undertaken

ALL  JAPANESE and KOREAN CAR DIAGNOSTICS! (including grey imports)

AMERICAN CARS:- GM, CHRYSLER, FORD

CAR ELECTRICAL TRAINING COURSES AVAILABLE SOON. ENQUIRIES WELCOME see Whats New

 

I SPECIALISE IN CAR ELECTRONICS. These days a Car Electrician is much more than just a repairer of wiring faults or fitting accessories. Computer Diagnostics play a huge part with the use of Oscilloscopes, Exhaust Analysers, Vacuum testers, Smoke leak testing and more... MANY GARAGES or TYRE CENTRES HAVE BOUGHT A DIAGNOSTIC TOOL FOR THEIR MECHANICS/TECHNICIANS/FITTERS  TO USE. The Art is in knowing how to use it and understand the whole picture of data available! One tool is not enough!

THERE IS A LOT MORE TO DIAGNOSTICS THAN JUST READING/CLEARING  FAULT CODES. Access to Manufacturer technical data, Live and stored data analysis is equally important, if someone else clears the fault codes then all the event history data can be erased as well, making it harder to find faults!

Not only Diagnostics though, also finding/repairing various electrical faults in all car systems

 

AIR CONDITIONING in conjunction with AIR CON SPECIALIST- MIKE WOOLDRIDGE, because there are electronics and refrigerant involved with the air conditioning system.
