Auto Electrical Service in Newport News, VA

Our Approach

Electrical gremlins can be extremely difficult to live with. Most of the time they come and go out of nowhere, making them difficult to repair. That’s why serving electrical systems makes most technicians break out in hives. But here at B&L Automotive Repair, that’s not the case. We know electrical repair like Ben and Jerry’s know ice cream, or Apple knows computers.

B&L For Your Auto Electrical Service

Experienced and Friendly Technicians Dedicated to Keeping you Cool

The amount of electronics onboard a modern vehicle is staggering. Fortunately, our ASE-certified technicians can service the electronics on all makes and models. This includes everything from a 1970’s AMC Gremlin to a brand new Mercedes E-Class. And they’ll do it with a smile, too.

Thorough inspections for accurate diagnosis

Excellent electrical repair begins with a thorough inspection and diagnosis. Using advanced diagnostic equipment (including multimeters, oscilloscopes and scanners) our team can accurately diagnose your vehicle’s electronics. Once they’ve honed in on the problem, an accurate (and permanent!) repair can be made.

Comprehensive and Honest Overviews

One thing we remember from high school physics is that electrical systems are a difficult concept. That’s why we take the time to help our customers understand their vehicle’s electronics and the needed repairs. Understanding builds trust, which is something we hope to earn from each of our customers.

No-Pressure Repair Recommendations

Our goal is to help you maintain your vehicle as if it were our own. This means that we point out important repairs, while not trying to sell you anything frivolous. In addition, we take each customer and their vehicle into account. After all, while taking on a large repair bill for a late model vehicle might be worthwhile, spending $1,000 on a 20 year old beater probably is not. We will openly discuss all of your options – even if they involve trading in your 1990 accord that’s held together by duct tape.

Repairs Performed with Quality Parts

Electronics are temperamental. Have you ever noticed how much better your iPod works compared to that no-name MP3 player you bought offline? Here at B&L Automotive, we know better than to make sacrifices when it comes to electronic components. That’s why we use only OEM and OEM approved parts in all of our repairs – from relays to resistors.
