Electrical and Electrical Systems Repair
The electrical and electronic systems in your vehicle are responsible for routing power and information in order to dictate the behavior of certain systems. The electrical systems are linked by wiring, fuses, circuit breakers, and relays. Loose or broken wiring, poor pin fits, and broken connectors or switches may lead to intermittent power or a completely inoperative system.
When you begin experiencing trouble with your electrical and electronic systems, ask yourself these questions: How often does this problem occur, and how long does this problem persist? The more information you are able to provide to our staff during an electrical and electronic systems service, the quicker we will be able to recreate the same conditions, and ultimately hone in on the exact problem.
The Basics Behind Dashboard Warning Diagnostic Services at Tonys Autowerks
The dashboard warning system is an effective tool that alerts you to one or more problems with your vehicle. Dashboard warning lights, or indicator lights, appear in the instrument cluster. Depending upon your vehicle, a warning may appear as either text, a symbol, or both. Generally, symbols are universal or very similar in appearance across different makes and models of vehicles. If you are unfamiliar with the symbol, you can consult your owners manual for its meaning. In many modern vehicles, dashboard warnings are color-coded. Yellow, orange, and red generally tell motorists to seek service shortly. When the text or symbol flashes, drivers should seek service immediately. Green and blue alerts also exist, and these are intended as informational pop-ups meant to inform you that something is in operation. Dashboard indicator lights exist for oil, tire pressure, lights, brakes, and more.

The Basics Behind Headlight Bulb Replacement Services at Tonys Autowerks
Headlight bulbs provide visibility for drivers and alert both pedestrians and other motorists to a vehicle’s presence. Bulbs are primarily composed of glass, a low pressure inert gas, a filament, and wires. Using the electricity provided by a vehicle’s charging system, bulbs produce a strong, steady light. A motorist can alter the bulb’s level of brightness to a low or high beam setting. Motorists tend to use low beams at night or during periods of inclement weather. In contrast, drivers generally use high beams at night when it is especially dark and other sources of lights are unavailable. When bulbs produce light at the high beam setting they can also cause glare, so drivers should be careful when using high beams around others. Some higher quality bulbs will function at optimal levels for several years. All headlight bulbs will eventually require replacement as their filaments fail from use over time.

Headlights and cabin lights can illuminate the surrounding area, reducing risk of injury from tripping or stumbling. In addition, a vehicle’s lights can alert other motorists to the vehicle’s presence. This is important during emergencies when a vehicle may be parked off the roadside.

The Basics Behind Power Locks Repair Services at Tonys Autowerks
Since being introduced in 1914, power door locks have increased convenience and safety for drivers and passengers. Doors equipped with power locks may respond to multiple control methods. In many modern cars, a driver need only push a button on a vehicle’s remote key fob to lock or unlock all of its doors at once. In addition, this central locking system can often be switched on or off from buttons located in the front of the vehicle near the driver and passenger side. Vehicle locks are especially useful when multiple passengers need access to a vehicle at one time. They also provide safety, allowing drivers and passengers to quickly secure themselves inside the vehicle. For these reasons, power locks continue to serve as a standard feature in many vehicles today.

The Basics Behind Power Sunroof Repair Services at Tonys Autowerks
The sunroof is a horizontal panel, usually made of glass, located on a vehicle’s roof. Primarily, sunroofs provide personal enjoyment. They allow air into a vehicle on hot days and provide motorists with a view of the sky. While power sunroofs and side windows serve similar functions, power sunroofs are ultimately more complex than windows. Whereas windows rely upon a strict vertical motion, power sunroofs often need to move both vertically and horizontally. Depending upon the vehicle, a sunroof may be controlled manually or automatically. For electronically powered sunroofs, drivers often need only press or hold a button to open and close them. Some power sunroofs also operate from the turn of a key or the press of a button on the key fob. While convenient, sunroofs are not incapable of failure. Power sunroofs can become inoperable or leak over time. In such cases, it is advisable that drivers seek sunroof repair services.

The Basics Behind Power Window Repair Services at Tonys Autowerks
Introduced in 1940, power windows have become a common feature in many modern cars, trucks, and SUVs. Unlike older window systems which require occupants to manually turn a crank to raise or lower windows, power windows are controlled with the simple push of a button or flip of a switch. Because power windows rely on electricity to work, most are inoperable once a vehicle stops running. However, some power windows feature a time delay that allows drivers and passengers to continue operating the windows for a short amount of time after the engine stops. Because power windows are easy to trigger, most vehicles also feature a safety lock that drivers can use to prevent other passengers, such as small children, from erroneously opening or closing the windows. Overall, power windows are a convenient feature that many motorists enjoy.
