Auto Electrical Repair & Maintenance

Have a dead battery? Misfiring starter or alternator? Are you experiencing wiring or other electrical issues? For all of your auto electrical repair and maintenance needs, come to Al's Certified Auto Repair in Augusta, ME 04330. We service your vehicle with care, providing a high level of workmanship you can trust.

If you were to open up all the parts of your vehicle, you would see miles of wiring coming from every direction. Every one of these wires is important, and if even one is loose or disconnected, your car might not function properly.

Typically, you will recognize an electrical problem within your vehicle by the lack of functioning power buttons, or you may even notice a light or two stuck on that should not be. Electrical and wiring problems require immediate auto electrical service, to ensure your vehicle is working the way it should? plus to verify that no wires pose a fire risk.

When you bring your vehicle in for auto electrical service, you will get an expert diagnosis and advice on how to repair the issue. Our team is trained in evaluating all wiring issues on all vehicle makes and models.

Our technicians are ASE Certified, and our facility AAA approved. This means we provide only the best auto electrical services throughout the entire Augusta area. We focus on customer service, honesty and affordability. Don't turn anywhere else when you need a new battery, a window motor replaced or a wiring harness added. If you think there may be a problem with the wires in your car or truck, do not hesitate to visit our qualified team at Al's Certified Auto Repair.



Our auto electrical repair and maintenance services include:

Batteries
The battery supplies electric energy which powers the ignition system, the starter motor, and the lights of an automotive. If you need to jump-start your vehicle in the morning, your battery could be failing. When a battery starts deteriorating, it can either be replaced or repaired - this will depend on the severity of the damage. If you are having issues with your car battery, contact Al's Certified Auto Repair in Augusta, ME. We provide a convenient battery testing and replacement service to get you back on the road. Battery replacement, charging, installation, testing, and recycling - we handle it all.

Starters
A starter is a motor (electric, hydraulic or pneumatic) that rotates the internal combustion engine to initiate the engine's operation. Starters are important parts of your car's engine and their failure would translate to your car's failure. When your car's starter develops problems, seek expert help. At Al's Certified Auto Repair, we have experts who can handle all your starter needs to get you back on the road - quickly. Visit Al's Certified Auto Repair today.

Alternators
Your vehicle is powered via the battery under the hood. A functioning battery ensures your car starts up and that all interior controls work properly. However, did you know your battery is not your car's only source of power?

The alternator is responsible for keeping the battery charged and electricity flowing throughout. If your vehicle's battery is not charged, you will be unable to start your car when you put the key in the ignition. This can prevent you from being able to take your little one to school.

If the alternator is failing, you may hear a clicking sound when you turn the key over, and you may also notice minimal power to the vehicle. The key difference between a battery problem and an alternator problem is that there is still some power to the vehicle when the alternator is out.

If you are having trouble with your vehicle or think that you may need an alternator repair or replacement, count on the dedicated team at Al?s Certified Auto Repair.



Al's Certified Auto Repair opened for business in 2001 and has been the local source for all electrical related repairs. No matter the make or model vehicle you have, our ASE-Certified technicians are more than ready to perform the electrical repair job you need.

  • -Oliva O.

    Referred to Al's from my extended warranty. Drove an hour over from the coast. Excellent customer service!!! Truly accommodating and customer oriented at the front desk. Al himself was even there. I appreciate an owner on premises, it says so much for the company. The boys behind the wall had my car fixed fast. Best of both worlds. I would recommend them any day.


  • -Becky A.

    Thanks for the great service. I am so glad I found you guys last year. Always a pleasure dealing with John. The service is great. The mechanics are knowledgeable. Great customer service. Thanks to all. See you again I am sure!


  • -Joseph C.

    Al's C.A.R. is great. My car broke down and they got me in for repair immediately. Every step of the process was clearly explained, and the work done was impeccable too. Highly recommend.


  • -Kyle M.

    ...I was stranded in Augusta with a nonfunctional vehicle and a large bag of perishable groceries, in 90-degree heat. After stowing my groceries in his refrigerator, Al figured out a game plan for fitting my car into the repair schedule AND getting me home. Then he and his wife DELIVERED my repaired car the next evening after they closed the shop, as I had no way to get back to Augusta to pick it up. His prices were in line with other garages, but the service/attention was unlike anything I have ever experienced. From now on, Al's is my go-to for auto repair. They will treat you well!!!


  • -Neil S.

    Al went the extra mile to help us out. He stayed late and made sure we had a safe vehicle to drive. His employees were very courteous and did such a good job. I highly recommend Al's Certified Auto Repair because they do a great job and they are great people.


  • -Howard J.

    The Al's Certified Auto Repair is one of the most largehearted group of people I have ever met. Along our route for the Hemmings Great Race 2018 they kept the doors open to make sure our car was running the way it was made in 1952. We were experiencing a handful of issues all of which were quickly diagnosed, resolved and tested. It's places like this that really remind myself and our team that good people still exist. We come from New York City and Connecticut where you'd be lucky if someone stuck around late or even took the care to look for other issues. I would highly recommend Al's to anyone in need of auto repair.


  • -Keith K.

    ...Unfortunately while traveling, my Yukon experienced a lack of power. I googled auto repair in Augusta and found ACAR. I knew they couldn't fit me in right away, but was pleased that they worked with me. Within an hour they had it diagnosed and called with an estimate...They kept me informed, squeezed me in, and very professionally took care of me. I met the owner Al, What a great guy!...Al's Certified went above and beyond, and the prices were VERY reasonable...Thanks to your team for taking such good care of a stranger. I can only imagine how good they take of their regular customers!


  • -William S.

    Al's helped us out in a pinch by keeping us motoring safely and happily. Great customer service, knowledge and professionalism. He stayed late and took the extra steps to make sure everything was right before we left. Can't say enough about how he was able to solve several issues quickly and permanently. Thank you!


  • -Andrew W.

    Went to Al's a while back. Needed some help. They were great to work with. Very friendly and helpful, explained everything to me. They have a great warranty, which was really nice. The shop is nice, clean, and inviting. Got to talk to Al himself, what a great guy! I was very satisfied with my visit. If I lived closer I would come back every time. Thanks guys!
