When you need auto electric service, who do you call? Johnny’s Auto & Marine Electrical Repair Services Garner, NC! We hope that you at least call someone with the expertise to solve your vehicles electrical problems. Some people don’t place much importance on their electrical systems. They feel that so long as their vehicle continues to run, then the electrical system just isn’t a high priority. However, they couldn’t be more wrong. Your electrical system is more than just your battery, and as computerized controls are installed in more vehicles, and becoming more important to those vehicles, it’s never been more important to ensure that your auto electric system is in peak condition. Small voltage fluctuations today could be a crisis on the road tomorrow. If you need any sort of electric service on your vehicle, we urge you to call us today.

Today’s auto electric systems are getting more intricate and are stressing the limits of current technology as vehicles become more dependent on computers.

Before replacing any battery due to a failure, have the battery and the car’s electrical system tested for proper operation. Replacing a dead battery only to have another another one die a few weeks later is not a good idea. A possible parasitic drain or a weak alternator will not only be frustrating but can also be expensive and dangerous as well.

Johnny's Auto And Marine Electric NC
There’s nothing more frustrating than trying to start your car in the morning and finding out that your battery has finally kicked the bucket. While most batteries should last somewhere between three and five years, extreme temperatures can sometimes push that range down to two or three years. When you have to replace your battery, you should be aware of the factors that go into your choice. Your new battery should have the same or high CCA (cold cranking amps) rating as your original battery, and should be of a compatible “group size” if you expect it to actually fit into your vehicle and make the necessary connections. We carry dependable “Interstate Batteries”.

Your battery isn’t the only electrical component of your vehicle that’s prone to problems. Your entire electrical system should be checked at least every two years in order to nip any problems in the bud. Especially since computerized controls are becoming more and more prominent, even the slightest electrical issues today can turn into all-out disasters tomorrow.

Johnny’s Auto & Marine Electric Service has proudly continued to build on its excellence and quality products through many state-of-the-art machinery and computerized equipment. We use factory scanners that are used by dealerships and we are capable of programming to the same standards as your dealership.
