It's a simple fact. The more modern your vehicle is, the more complex its electrical system will be. Today's cars (especially hybrid and electric vehicles) are so advanced with high-tech onboard computers and sophisticated battery systems. Obviously, the more complex the system, the more things that can go wrong and the more you need an automotive expert to make any electrical repairs.
The good news for Fairbanks area residents is that Simard Automotive has you covered for all your auto electric repair and maintenance needs, whether you have a modern car with advanced technology or a classic ride with simple electronic controls. Here are some common electrical problems you may want to look for:
Check Engine Light
If your check engine light or any other dashboard warning lights come on, it means that one of the sensors in your vehicle has alerted the computer that there may be a problem. It is always worth getting looked at by an auto repair expert like Simard Automotive who can run diagnostic tests and perform a thorough inspection to get to the source of the issue.
Whether it's your automatic windows/doors, interior lights, exterior lights, car stereo, GPS system or any other electrical component that is not working right, bring your vehicle in to Simard Automotive and we'll get it fixed for you.
Sometimes a connection can get corroded, a wire may come lose or a fuse can short out. If something isn't working properly, it could be a wiring issue that is worth getting repaired by a mechanic who knows what they are doing.
Car Won't Start/Dying Battery
If your vehicle won't start up, it could be the battery or it could be a starter issue such as a dead starter or wiring malfunction. Simard Automotive can help with all your car battery and starter needs so you can get your vehicle fired up and back on the road as quickly and safely as possible.
