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 Advanced Automotive Repair to ensure your vehicle is in top driving condition.

Our electronic services include:

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

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 Advanced Automotive Repair, we can pull the code and diagnose the problem for you. Give us a call at 301-662-4083 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 Advanced Automotive Repair in Frederick, MD 21701 today.

Computer Reflashing
Advanced Automotive Repair has state-of-the-art equipment to provide computer reflashing to our customers in the Frederick 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 Advanced Automotive Repair or call us at 301-662-4083 to schedule an appointment!

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 Advanced Automotive Repair in Frederick, MD 21701 today. At Advanced Automotive 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 Advanced Automotive Repair today.

Jim was very professional from the beginning. I felt so comfortable leaving my car for state inspection. I am new in the area. I will be taking my car for service from now on. I am glad there is a good reliable and honest mechanic shop in Frederick. Thanks!


-Jimmy R.

Had both cars in for the state inspection. Very knowledgeable and detailed in their explanation(s). Jim is old school customer service, which is a great thing!


-Nick T.

We have been using Advanced Automotive Repair for our cars for many years and have always been satisfied with the excellent service and reasonable prices. Jim is skilled and knowledgeable and he doesn't upsell unnecessary repairs. The shop and waiting room are not fancy but that's okay because we appreciate the repair and maintenance costs being kept low.


-KJ

Great place! Very knowledgeable owner/ mechanic, with more industry certifications than any other mechanic in the area. They offer the full spectrum of automotive repair services, as well as Maryland State Inspections (at one of the lowest prices in the area), they are also a Maryland Certified Emissions Repair Facility. They take the extra steps necessary to do the job the correct way, without taking short cuts. You can feel confident that the work they perform on your vehicle will be done properly, and at the highest standards of quality.


-Karl S.

First time going here. Very honest & open. Plain spoken explanations of what vehicle needs on an inspection and old parts replaced to view. Top notch car care.


-Mike N.

Shari and I got my vehicle inspected at Jim's garage last week and as always we were given the best service and the best advice with the car. Jim takes pride in his work. His number 1 goal is that he provides safety to you when you are on the road. His knowledge on vehicles is like no other mechanic. 2 thumbs up to advanced automobile repair. Thank you Jim .


-Todd W.

My first time being there for my Maryland State Inspection. I received the best customer service and great care for my car. I would recommend this place to everyone! Your needs and best interest are in the forefront of mind. You won't be disappointed.


-Priscille D.

We took our car to Advanced Automotive Repair and dealt with Kim on the phone and Jim in person. They both were a delight to deal with and we felt that we were in good hands immediately. Jim is the type of mechanic that everyone should know and use, he has a "Don't fix it if it isn't broken!" philosophy, much unlike your typical car dealer's service center. This saves you money and time and makes you want to bring your vehicle back to him for service. He explains things and makes sure you understand what he is explaining. He takes the time to make sure that you are happy with what he is going to do and then takes the time to make sure that you are still happy after he is done.
