What’s the Difference between an
Auto Mechanic and an
Auto Electrician?

An auto mechanic is a professional who diagnoses and fixes car problems. An auto electrician, on the other hand, installs electrical systems in vehicles. So, if it's an electrical problem you'll definitely want an auto electrician rather than a regular auto mechanic.


What Is an Auto Mechanic?

Auto mechanics typically work on regular maintenance tasks like oil changes and tune-ups while auto electricians may do more complex repairs, such as installing an updated stereo system or wiring for headlights and tail lights. It's important that you know which service your vehicle needs before bringing it into the garage so you don't end up spending too much money without getting satisfactory results.


What Do Auto Electricians Do?

An auto electrician is a professional who specialises in working on cars. They may perform routine maintenance, repairs, and replacements on vehicles that require electrical work. Some common tasks that an auto electrician might do include installing new batteries or wiring in accessories like headlights or stereo systems.
