Auto Electrical Repairs

Whether you drive a passenger car, light commercial vehicle, heavy truck, or operate a mower, tractor, trailer or caravan, if it’s on wheels and has a battery, we’re able to help you keep it in excellent working order.

We can provide repairs and products for your vehicle or machine, from testing and replacing faulty batteries, alternators and starter motors, lighting and audio upgrades to solar panel installation and dual battery systems for camping and caravanning. We also install Farmscan AG GPS systems as a licensed seller and re-seller.

Having car trouble that you can’t explain and getting no further than a mystery blinking light on your dashboard is one of the most frustrating feelings a driver can experience. With the greater level of sophistication involved in newer vehicles’ electrical systems managing the various sensors and gauges throughout your vehicle, it takes a dedicated technician to keep on top of the latest in auto repair techniques and technology.

Our workshop is equipped with the latest in diagnostic scan tools, allowing us to locate the precise cause of car trouble, repair it effectively and efficiently, and get you back on the road sooner. We’re also able to maintain, service and upgrade any of the various GPS systems we install, including Farmscan Ag and Topcon systems, as well as provide technical support and advice.

If you’ve got persistent car trouble that leaves other repairers scratching their heads, arrange a diagnostic scan with us by contacting us today!

Roadside Service

A vehicle with auto electrical problems can’t always make it to the nearest workshop for repairs, and having your vehicle stranded by the roadside somewhere in the Mallee region is not an ideal situation in any sense of the word.

That’s why we’re happy to operate a mobile service vehicle, letting us come to you anywhere in the southern Mallee region within 100km of our workshop in Hopetoun. We’ll come to you with our fully equipped service van, and get you up and running again, if not in full condition then to at least get you to the nearest workshop for emergency repairs. We can also visit you in your paddock to conduct emergency repairs for farming machinery.

If you’re stuck on the roadside, think of Brad Petschel’s Auto Elec and give us a call on (03) 5083 3030

Air Conditioning

Being able to keep your cabin cool when you need it is vital to the comfort of both yourself and your passengers. Even during the cooler months, however, your vehicle’s air conditioning system can suffer wear and tear that stops it from working as it should when it gets hot on the road.

At Brad Peschel’s Auto Elec, we’re qualified to conduct air conditioning repairs, from replacing leaky hosing to repairing or replacing faulty air conditioning units, as well as re-gassing your system with the refrigerants it needs to keep you cool at the wheel. We can also provide the same services for farming and agricultural equipment, keeping your machinery up and working.
