Diagnostics – Specialists in Engine Diagnostics & Tune Ups

Electrical Services

Automate have fully qualified auto electricians who have a wealth of experience in diagnosing and resolving a wide range of electrical faults on your vehicle.

We also carry a vast stock of small electrical components such as bulbs, fuses, relays and wipers to ensure that your work is carried out without delay. Anything that isn’t in stock can usually be ordered and delivered within 24hrs.
