WOW I bought my car in for a Quote on a clutch after I had a service at the local Nambour dealer I bought the car from and was told I need a clutch kit and the parts are not covered in our warranty. Bill was going to be $1600 on top of a $400 service on a Suzuki Alto. I took the car to Jose St and not only did I get good advice but he looked at the Alto and adjusted the clutch for free so it works without grinding the gears.

Peter W.

Excellent service turned up unannounced when my A/C packed up although they were busy they took the time to have a look and fixed it for me at no charge as it was a simple fix. They have won me and I will not need to look any further for a trustworthy mechanic.

Greg H.

Excellent guys and excellent old school service. Wouldn’t take my car anywhere else. Have even moved away and still take my car back there to be serviced. They are so very obliging, they keep you informed the whole way and will go out of their way to assist. You couldn’t ask for better mechanics.

Penny D.

I had my brake pads done and they work great – no problems at all. Young guy was very friendly and dropped me at work and picked me up when the car was ready. Another chap went through every item on the invoice and explained what they did and why (they quoted first). Very good service.

Kay H.

These guys are awesome. So nice and friendly and the best thing of all they don’t rip you off and charge you for repairs that weren’t needed or necessary. Quick and easy to deal with. I would recommend them to anyone especially if you want things explained properly. Very pleased.

Cooper A.

Simply the BEST mechanics we have been to. Honest, timely & they gave me a full comprehensive report so I knew exactly what was happening with the car & they gave me a 10% seniors discount!

Aaron B.

I came away very satisfied with the car service I received. The team were friendly and explained everything clearly. I appreciated the affordable price, honesty, integrity and peace of mind I was left with.

Linda B.

For the last 5 years we have taken both of our European cars to Nambour Car Service and have been very happy with the service, price and quality of work. We do recommend.

Electrical Mechanic providing Diagnostic & Auto Electrical Services

With each passing year and the ensuing new round of vehicle models released, automobiles become more complex and dependent on internal computers and electronic systems. Computers in vehicles no longer simply control systems such as fuel injection and the regulation of engine power. They now influence everything such as your internal and external lighting systems, your windscreen wiper blades, the climate control system, and even the entertainment functions of your car.

Though electrical issues are hard to isolate, they comprise a large portion of our auto repair jobs. As such, we are highly experienced in diagnosing and fixing these problems. Whether your window is stuck in the “up” position or your radio’s volume dial is broken, our car electrical mechanics can fix it.

Our Nambour automotive service technicians are highly experienced in auto electrical services as electrics are incorporated in almost every mechanical and chassis system on a car. Accurately diagnosing and repairing vehicle electrical system faults cover a large percentage of the work our auto service mechanics carry out daily.

Why Choose Us for Car Electrical Services

When our Sunshine Coast auto mechanics carry out car electrical inspections, they test systems or sensors that may have failed, and check the charging rate of the alternator and the health of the car battery. Also involved is an inspection of the fuses and relays.

Our Jose St Auto Centre’s electrical mechanic technicians are leaders in their field and are extremely proud of it. Our workshop caters to all car electrical problems, from light globes, wiring faults and starter motor overhauls to the latest fuel injection system fault diagnosis and other electric car repairs.

Whatever the auto electrical problem you may be having, call our Nambour car service centre for expert car electrical diagnosis and car electrical repair. A vehicle electrical problem is something that should be fixed a soon as possible once detected as it could be compromising the many safety systems designed to protect you in the event of a car accident. And not to mention, by letting the fault fester, the car electrical repair costs could well become excessive.

Some Common Car Electrical Issues

Have you noticed your vehicle struggling to start the engine when you turn the ignition key? That could mean a problem with your starter motor. We perform full overhauls and replacements of starters so that you don’t end up stranded far from home.

Did you know that when your “Service Engine” light comes on, your car’s internal computer is generating diagnostic codes? A special tool is required to read these codes. We can read your codes, assess the state of your vehicle, and perform effective repairs at competitive rates.

For decades fuel injected engines have been controlled by computers. In modern cars computers are commonly being used to control everything such as interior lights, headlights, windscreen wipers and virtually all interior functions.

6 Common Reasons For Car Auto Electrical Problems

1. Failed Sensor/Alternator: This causes a light to flash on the dashboard and may affect other vehicle electrical systems.

2. Blown Fuse: These safety devices are designed to stop excess electrical current from damaging sensitive car circuits. Such a fault can also indicate another component has failed and is drawing too much current.

3. Low Battery Voltage: Electricity is provided to the vehicle via the car battery. If the voltage is low, it can cause many electrical components to shut down to save power for the critical systems – the engine and safety components.

4. Car Wiring Faults: Such faults can interrupt power flow, as well as cause other vehicle electrical issues.

5. Failing Spark Plugs: Spark plugs are made to ignite the fuel and air mixture inside your vehicle engine’s combustion chambers, but sometimes they don’t work correctly or are past their use by and need replacing. In most instances, simply having a car electrical mechanic replace the old spark plug with a new one will resolve the problem. If the car engine misfires or it’s not accelerating as it should, it may well be that you have a spark plug problem and should make an appointment at our car service centre.

6. Failing Car Horn, Lights & Other Minor Issues: If you notice your car’s indicator lights are blinking really fast it, it means they’re on their way out and will soon need replacing. If your car horn isn’t working or sounds distorted instead of full-bodied it could be a signal that a wire is lose or the horn is damaged.  To notice other minor electrical problems you’ll need to have someone in the driver’s seat operating the vehicle in “park” while you walk around the vehicle checking that the brake lights are working and the headlights are working.
