Truck Services

Here at Shawn O’ Brien Auto Electrical, we understand the importance of keeping your business’ trucks running. We also fully understand that truck repairs are a lot more urgent than passenger vehicle repairs, as every hour your truck is off the road is an hour of lost revenue. Our expert team is fully equipped, proficient, and ready to provide you with speedy repairs to get you back on the road as soon as possible.

Auto Electrical Services

As modern vehicles have increased in complexity, more and more functionality is governed by the onboard auto-electrical network. This network handles everything from monitoring fuel consumption and playing music, to assisting with gear changes and braking, even monitoring your engine and putting your vehicle into limp mode to prevent lasting damage, if a serious flaw is detected.

Shawn O’ Brien Auto Electrical has an expert auto electrician who can help you with any and all auto electrical services, including, but not limited to:

  • Alternators and starter motors
  • Battery check and replacement
  • Component check and replacement
  • Diagnostics
  • Accessory installations
  • Solar/battery systems

Logbook Servicing

When you buy a new vehicle, the manufacturer provides you with a warranty that covers the cost of parts failure. This warranty is only valid, however, if you have your vehicle regularly serviced by a certified mechanic, who records and stamps these services in your vehicle’s logbook.

Here at Shawn O’ Brien Auto Electrical, our skilled mechanic is certified to provide logbook servicing for all:

  • Petrol vehicles
  • Diesel vehicles

Inspection Services

If you’re planning on selling, giving away, importing, or otherwise changing registration of your vehicle, you are legally required to acquire an E-safety Certificate. Issued by a licensed tester, the E-safety check ensures that your vehicle meets the safety requirements to be safely driven on New South Wales roads.

Shawn O’ Brien Auto Electrical is a licensed testing station and we are happy to help you through the E-safety process.

Steering & Suspension

If your steering and suspension are malfunctioning, they will drastically affect handling and ride comfort, causing body roll through corners and play in the steering wheel. Your suspension is also responsible for maximizing the grip that your tyres exert on the road surface, so a poor suspension will also increase your stopping distance.

Shawn O’ Brien Auto Electrical’s expert technician can help you with:

  • Shock absorbers, springs and struts
  • Wheel balancing
  • Bushing replacement
  • Power steering repairs and replacement

Cooling Systems

Faults and flaws in your cooling system affect power output, fuel efficiency, and engine lifespan, as leaking coolant and overheating damages the engine. If these problems are ignored for long enough, they will render your vehicle immobile, with the cost of repairs being comparable to buying a secondhand car.

Here at Shawn O’ Brien Auto Electrical, our practiced mechanic provides the following services:

  • Radiator/heater unit repairs and replacement
  • Head gasket replacement
  • Coolant flush and leak check
  • Thermostat check and replacement

Brake Services

Your brakes are the most important safety feature your vehicle has. While other safety systems can only reduce the severity of an accident, your brakes can also act preventatively, and the condition of your brakes is often the deciding factor between an accident and an emergency stop.

Your brakes suffer an accelerated quantity of wear compared to the rest of your vehicle. For this reason, we agree with brake manufacturers that you should have your brakes checked at least once a year.

Here at Shawn O’ Brien Auto Electrical, our expert mechanic can help you with:

  • Component replacement (pads, rotors, drums etc.)
  • Brake hose repairs
  • Brake restorations

Air Conditioning

Nothing ruins a summer drive faster than broken air conditioning, especially if you’re stuck in traffic. Your AC degrades more from disuse than from use, as the rubber tubing and seals inside the aircon dry up and crack without use, allowing refrigerant to leak out and rob your air conditioning of cooling power.

Here at Shawn O’ Brien Auto Electrical, we can fully repair your air conditioning, starting by swapping out broken condensers and compressors, then replacing any broken tubing and seals, and finally recharging your aircon with refrigerant once we’re certain it’s airtight.

Other Services

We offer a wide range of other services here at Shawn O’ Brien Auto Electrical, including, but not limited to:

  • Exhaust repairs and replacement
  • Exhaust modifications and upgrades
  • Transmission servicing
  • Tyres for all makes and model of car
  • Caravan repairs
  • Trailer repairs
