This video is intended to show you the very basics of wiring.  Throw in a newer model vehicle with a computer and problems get a little more complex.  Let us assist you in all your vehicle electrical issues.

The electrical components in your vehicle matter just as much as any other part in your car. Neighborhood Automotive’s skilled technicians are here to repair or install any electrical or computer needs to keep your car, truck, SUV, or 4×4 running smoothly. Below is a list of what we can help you with:


Many automotive electrical issues stem from the charging system itself (as depicted on our Charging System page), but often times a more extensive diagnostic is in need to figure out possible wiring issues, or perhaps the problem lies in the electronic components (including computer) of the vehicle.  nonetheless, here at Neighborhood Automotive we have the experience to mitigate all your electrical issues.


No one enjoys getting a ticket from a police officer for a broken brake light or tail light. Sometimes, the problem is more than just a blown light bulb. If you’re having trouble with your brake lights or tail lights, bring your vehicle in and we’ll run full diagnostics to identify the problem spots in your car’s electrical system.


Over the past two decades, car engine designs have changed dramatically. So often, people come into the shop asking for a tune-up. Because the engine is controlled by your car’s internal computer, there is little to physically “tune-up.” Whether you can’t get that “Check Engine” light to turn off or you notice your car is acting sluggish, bring it in and we’ll run full diagnostics for you.


Today, almost every aspect of your vehicle is controlled by an electrical system. When these systems fail, it is next to impossible to determine the fail point just by looking at it. Our team of mechanics will run diagnostics and identify just where the system is failing.


It could be a faulty light bulb or it could be something more complicated in the electrical system. If you need your vehicle’s headlamps replaced, or tried replacing them yourself but can’t find the problem, we’ll diagnose the problem and get your headlights back up and running.


The electrical components of your window are some of the most used – and abused – components in your automobile. It takes years of opening and closing windows to wear these components down, but we all know children who can accomplish this much faster! If you notice your windows aren’t opening or closing, or that they are moving slower, bring it in and have us install the necessary new components.


Over time, your windshield wiper motors will start to fail. This can be accentuated by trying to have your wipers clear inches of wet and heavy Colorado snow off your windshield. A wiper moving slower, or not at all, is a sign that the wiper motor needs to be swapped out.


If your instrument cluster needs to be rebuilt, you can be sure that Neighborhood Automotive has you covered. Having a working speedometer, gas gauge, or any other gauge in your car, truck, SUV or 4×4 is critical to having a well-working vehicle.
