Mazda 2 Uniden Dash Camera - August 2020

One of our customers recently bought a Uniden IGO CAM Dual Dash Camera from Aldi and wanted our Auto electricians to install it in their Mazda 2.  This Dash cam features a front and rear camera, motion detector, G-sensor and has a forward collision warning system.  This was a good option for our customer as they wanted to ensure safety when reversing, as well as the benefit to have evidence recorded in case of an accident.  Dash cameras are becoming increasingly popular as they are a type of protection and can support a point of view in the case of an incident.  There are many great options for Dash cameras available depending on your needs.  Our Auto Electricians are experienced in fitting all types of Dash cameras and front/rear reverse cameras and sensors.  We are more than happy to discuss options with you and can either supply and install the camera or install one supplied by you.

Recently we have installed a few Elecbrakes units to trailers.   Elecbrakes is an Australian owned, designed & manufactured wireless electric brake controller revolutionising the way we tow.  They are an alternative to the traditional electric brake control units and require no modifications to be done to your towing vehicle.  Elecbrakes connects wirelessly to the in-car remote control and the user's smartphone.  They can be installed on any trailer and you can use any suitable vehicle to tow.   Our auto electricians are experienced in fitting the units and the job can be completed in our workshop or by our mobile auto electrical service.  

   

    

PRADO EVAPORATOR REPLACEMENT - JULY 2020

This Toyota Prado was booked into the workshop as it was having Air Conditioning problems.  Our Auto Electrician diagnosed a leaking evaporator.  Replacing the evaporator in this car is a major job as the entire dash needs to come apart.   Before carrying out a large job like this we always call the customer to provide a quote.  The customer was happy for us to go ahead with the replacement.  As you can see below we have taken progress photos throughout the replacement process.  Once the new evaporator was installed the dash was put back together and an Air Conditioning service and regas was carried out.   Our customer was very happy to have his air conditioning working again.

        

       

HYUNDAI ELANTRA RADIO REPLACEMENT - JULY 2020

Today we had a Hyundai Elantra in with radio problems.  The radio head unit had stopped producing sound.  This is a common problem in some Hyundai models.  Our auto electricians decided it was best to replace the radio with a new unit and therefore a new Kenwood head unit was installed.  Our auto electricians are experienced in fitting all types of radio head units.  We can advise on the best unit for your car to suit your personal needs.  We  can supply and install new radio head units, repair older units or install units the customer has supplied themselves.

AC SERVICE AND REGAS - 28/11/2019

This week we have had many cars in for Air conditioning services and regas.  Summer is about to hit and there is nothing worse than having no car air conditioning or hot air blowing in your face.  Most people assume that if the AC is working then there is no need to have it serviced.  However, this can lead to major expenses down the track. Our technicians are skilled at diagnosing problems with your car's AC system and can let you know if it simply requires a regas or something else is going on.  Most large AC jobs can be done on the same day, depending on availability of parts.  A standard regas involves recovering the old gas, evacuating the system, replenishing the oil, adding dye for future testing and regassing with R134A.  A regas can usually be carried out within an hour or two. 

AC services are recommended every 12 months because over time you may lose gas through various leaks which can force small amounts of oil out of the system.  This can leave your compressor to run dry of oil, whilst still getting cold.  This can then result in a seized compressor.  Regular services ensure your car's AC system is running effectively, as well as keeping you cool throughout the hot months.

  

 

HYUNDAI ILOAD DOOR ACTUATOR - 31/10/2019

The front passenger door and sliding door in this iload were not locking and unlocking.  Our technician diagnosed faulty door actuators.  New actuators were supplied and fit.  Both doors are locking once again.

  

CARAVAN AUTO ELECTRICS - 26/09/2019

Our customer came in this week with discharged batteries in his caravan which was caused by his 12V fridge being connected directly to his house batteries. We recommended updating his electrical system with a 40amp Enerdrive DCDC system, with a 240V Enerdrive battery charger. He was also needing an Anderson and trailer plug. Our customer can now be confident going off grid caravanning.

  

 

 

BMW X3 ALTERNATOR - 29/08/2019

Today we had this BMW X3 towed into the workshop by RACQ.  We diagnosed a faulty alternator.  The challenge was getting the alternator out as it was in a tricky location.  But happy to report our guys were successful in removing it and it was replaced with the new alternator.  

  

 

NISSAN PATHFINDER COMPRESSOR - 27/07/2019

Today we had this Nissan Pathfinder in the workshop. We diagnosed a seized AC compressor which was caused by a blockage in the condenser. Therefore, we had to replace the compressor, the condenser, tx valve, receiver drier and cabin filter. We also had to flush the AC system to clean it of its contamination from the metal fillings of the compressor. Finished with a AC service and regas just in time for the hot weather.
