Auto Electronics Repair

Don't neglect your vehicle's electronic systems - trust our experts to repair your vehicle properly the first time around! A poor driving experience can often be related to a malfunctioning computer or driving controls. Come to Cruz Auto Repair to ensure your vehicle is in top driving condition.

Our electronic services include:

Check Engine Light
No one likes to see their car's "Check Engine" light come on. The light could mean a costly problem, like a bad catalytic converter, or it could be something minor, like a loose gas cap. At Cruz Auto Repair, we can pull the code and diagnose the problem for you. Give us a call at 510-215-1841 or stop by the shop for our expert assistance.

Computer
Today, car manufacturers include at least one computer in motor vehicles. This computer's main function is to monitor and adjust engine and transmission operations. The computer receives input information from different sensors. The computer controls spark plugs, idle speed, and fuel injectors so as to get you the best possible car performance. Failure of the car computer will greatly affect the things it controls. To get the most out of your car's computer, have it evaluated regularly for updates and proper operation. If it is already failing, have it repaired or replaced. To have your car's computer handled by experts, visit Cruz Auto Repair in Richmond, CA 94804 today.

Computer Reflashing
Cruz Auto Repair has state-of-the-art equipment to provide computer reflashing to our customers in the Richmond area. The primary reason to reflash a computer (which basically means updating or reinstalling its software) is that an update has been issued by the manufacturer. It's a very simple procedure, and there may be minor updates that the car hasn't had. The manufacturer may have tweaked the transmission-shifting algorithm or some other parameters that are not crucial but may bring slight improvements to drivability, mileage or emissions. Since auto manufacturers are coming out with automobile updates every day, there may be a reprogram available for your vehicle. Stop by Cruz Auto Repair or call us at 510-215-1841 to schedule an appointment!

Diagnostics
Mechanics at Cruz Auto Repair are able to diagnose all the electronic parts in your car. For expert diagnostics services on your car's electronic devices, visit Cruz Auto Repair today.

Drivability
Drivability is the degree of smoothness and steadiness of your car's acceleration. Most modern cars are fitted with on-board computers that continuously check the readings from various sensors. In case of drivability problems, you will receive a warning message on your car's dashboard. To have your car diagnosed for drivability issues, visit Cruz Auto Repair in Richmond, CA 94804 today. At Cruz Auto Repair, we have the necessary tools, training, and technology to diagnose and address your car's drivability issues.

Engine Controls
Basically, an engine control system is an on-board computer in your car. Like all computers, the engine controls are composed of hardware and software. Automotive engine control systems are responsible for regulating exhaust emissions, and providing increased fuel economy. To get the best out of your car's incredibly powerful technology, make sure engine controls are working properly. To check if your car's engine controls are working properly, call Cruz Auto Repair today.

What Our Customers Are Saying

I just met Augustin, and he really took good care of me. Replaced the damaged parts that were causing a vibration in my Dodge Ram. He took it for a test drive and made some recommendations for service. Great service, honest, friendly, and very reasonably priced. Thank you! I highly recommend this shop.


-John D.

We were very thankful to have found Cruz Auto Repair on a late Saturday afternoon after the heater hose in our car sprung a leak on the interstate and leaked engine coolant everywhere. Augustin was able to fit us into his shop immediately and replaced the components right there while we waited, staying late past his normal closing time to ensure we'd be able to get home that evening. He was very down-to-earth, knew what he was doing, and charged a very reasonable rate for the work performed.


-Nick P.

I had a master cylinder replaced on my Toyota. Efficient and honest service. It is my newly discovered, go to garage, when I do not have time or the place to work on my own car.


-Victor L.

Great customer service! Honest guys. Very reasonable prices! They explained everything to me before signing any papers or performing any work. They are very professional. Highly recommend this shop without hesitation.


-John T.

I got a great deal with Cruz Auto Repair. They were fair, honest and fast. I'll definitely recommend these guys to my family and friends.


-Scotty S.

Reasonable price and the best auto repair with diamond certified warranty!


-Douglas C.

Allow me to start by saying that we chose this shop because my wife is the Extended Care Director and a part-time substitute teacher at the school the owner (Cruz) has his son in. The owner and I spoke during and after the process, and it seemed like it was important to him to do a good job. They back their work with a full 180 day warranty - good in all 50 states! That's hard to beat!


-Ray D.

Great turn around time for a last minute appointment. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful. My only critique, help the receptionist with the calls regarding diagnosis. She did the best she could, but wasn't able to answer technical questions. Overall, great shop. And we will be back.


-Lisa R.

Great Shop and Great work! Thank you Mr. Cruz and staff for always taking care of our vehicles! Thank You Much!


-Regina M.

A truly honest, reliable professional. I went in for a transmission overhaul and payed for this major project upfront, IN CASH. To my surprise I get a call back that they were able to find the real issue and refunded me over $2,000!! Any other unethical mechanic would have easily kept the cash and do the unnecessary work. He's a good and honest mechanic; a rare find indeed!
