Most mechanical functions are now dependent on electrical components. Your car is controlled by a complex arrangement of wires, sensors and computers working together. If communication along those wires is interrupted, it could have major consequences for several components of your vehicle.
Electrical systems are now more complicated, but more reliable and easier to diagnose and remedy with the proper equipment. At Christian Brothers Automotive, we have a full line of manufacturer certified diagnostic tools. The tools, scanners and equipment are the same or better than those used in dealership service departments.
Our ASE certified technicians know your car’s electrical components and can quickly and effectively diagnose the problem. At Christian Brothers Automotive, we take a serious, targeted approach to pinpoint the problem and minimize the cost of your repair to one of the electrical components. Meaning, time is not wasted doing guesswork on your vehicle and your wait in the lobby will be minimal. If you prefer, we are more than happy to give you a ride home or to work in a courtesy shuttle.
Sometimes what seems like a major repair could merely be a software issue. Computers control your car. Starters, alternators, air conditioning systems and many other components are now computer controlled. Our ASE certified technicians will make sure you do not waste money on diagnostics and parts.
Your battery could also be the culprit of an electrical system problem. A loose battery cable, a faulty wire or a dirty connection could appear to be a bigger problem than reality. If your battery is not receiving a charge, the alternator may need replacement. You will receive a full system check, not just a recommendation for parts you may not need. We check the basics before recommending a major repair. We care about your car and we respect your budget.
"I took my car to this shop to have it worked on. My car needed a new alternator. They charged me half of what the dealership quoted. Plus Christian Brothers provided a free courtesy inspection on my car. Turns out my tires need to be replaced. Good to know before winter comes around again. I would highly recommend this automotive shop. It was a clean shop. The people were friendly and the price was right."

"I recently had an electrical repair and another great experience with Christian Brothers Automotive. The diagnosis and service were quick and less than I expected to repair. This is the third vehicle that I have had serviced and the level of service has been consistently great. I trust and have confidence in this automotive business. They do what they state they will do, and I would highly recommend them."

"I had an alternator go out as I was driving home from a trip. I arrived at Christian Brothers Automotive at about 3 p.m. and three hours later was on the road again. In that time the employees worked diligently to get the best possible price on an alternator for me. Each person I encountered was unbelievably friendly and helpful. They made me feel confident that the repair had been done and done well. I wish I lived closer to Weatherford because I would do business there all the time!"
