Most vehicles today consist of complex networks that require fast and reliable data transmission between modules. And those modules rely on consistent data from your car’s computer and its sensors. All of this requires good wiring and preventative maintenance.
Electrical problems can vary from a simple light bulb failure to a shorted wire in the harness. There are about 700-2,000 pairs of wires in a typical car. Understanding how that works and how they are wired, requires serious brain power and advanced diagnostic tools.
Here at Third Street Auto Service, we specialize in all kinds of electrical repairs ranging from wire shortages, PCM repairs to changing the entire wiring harness. We get referrals from other shops when they cannot figure out the problem.
Often times the problem only occurs sometimes, which makes it difficult to diagnose. Rely on Third Street Auto Service to finding your vehicle’s hidden/sporadic electrical issues. As vehicle’s get more complex, diagnosing electrical problems requires time. Plan on leaving your car for a couple of days if you encounter any electrical issues.
