It may not look like it, but your truck relies on its electrical systems just as much as their mechanical counterparts. That’s why it's so important to keep on top of maintenance and inspection routines when it comes to the vehicle’s electronics. Brant Jones Auto & Towing has you covered. Ground wires, batteries, ECMs; no matter the problem, we’ll figure out your electrical issues.
Well, with the electronic systems your truck wouldn’t be going anywhere. While your engine is what’s responsible for getting the vehicle moving, things like the battery or the accompanying systems like the electric starter motor or glow plugs are what get the engine going in the first place. Not only that, all those sensors and diagnostic systems that help monitor your truck and inform you of problems also need a proper electrical system to function. Don’t forget, the more comfort-oriented system like the radio or cabin A/C controls need good connections too.
Bad or broken ground wires are a huge culprit in diesel truck electrical issues. You can check around the battery and look for a broken wire, one that has slipped loose, or never even hooked up in the first place. If you don't find any issues, take a little bit of time and clean all the ground wires you see until you're sure the connection between the wire and battery is good. Additionally, keep in mind that ground wires will corrode and get weaker over time. Often, people replace their battery but not the wires. Not only does this negate the new change, but your older wires may not be able to handle the electrical load. Depending on the age of the ground wires and the load they’re handling, this is a prime catalyst for engine electrical fires.
Your fuse box should probably be the first place you check when having electrical problems. Additionally, if you take the panel off and look up, you'll see the gem module behind the fuse box. If you check both of these and you're still having problems, you'll likely need a deeper diagnostics check. Come into Brant Jones Auto & Towing and our team has you covered.
Aftermarket accessories are often the cause of electrical issues in diesel trucks. Depending on the accessory and who installed them, installations can be faulty or unfinished. A faulty installation can carry the potential for shorts within your system, which can affect other areas of the truck. These effects can range from power drains from other vital systems, electricity bleeding from bad connections and subsequently a lack of enough power, or in worst-case scenarios electrical fires.
Had brakes repaired on my 2012 Expedition. Completely satisfied. Owner is honest and makes a great effort to see that each repair is to done correctly and that the customer is satisfied. Brant Jones has been my mechanic for 18 years. An honest and helpful mechanic is a good find. Any one star reviews are most likely written by someone who cannot be pleased or by a competing auto repair shop.
Absolutely fantastic! I work for a roadside assistance company and I called then to help us with a tow the other night, Blue was amazing. He got there quickly and was super pleasant on the phone. If I can even get more business their way they will get it every time. #teamblue
They did a quality repair job on rusted brake lines on my truck. Brakes work much better now. Fast service. Very reasonable pricing. I plan on going back for anymore service needed for my truck or car.
Professional, fast service, high quality results... Everything I had been looking for in a local mechanic. Extremely pleased and you will be too.
Came in (mid crisis) after 9 other places said no..they got my baby fixed right up and didn't take a bite out of my budget! I will be back when she needs some TLC
Lou was friendly and informative when he towed my vehicle. The repairs done to my vehicle were fast and inexpensive and the women at the front desk was great. Cannot recommend these people enough.
