Electrical Diagnosis in Grants Pass, Oregon

Have a dead battery? For all your electrical diagnosis and maintenance requirements, you can come to STAR Automotive in Grants Pass. Our owner Jim Lefeber and technicians have decades of combined experience and can take care of your vehicle, bumper to bumper.

The electrical system in your automobile is incorporated with and controls all the significant components of your car. Most people know about their vehicle’s battery, but there are other parts of your vehicle that power its electric components, such as the alternator and the starter. If one of these components are faulty, the entire electric system of your vehicle is effected. Many parts of your vehicle are electric, including air bags, ignition control systems, tire pressure monitors, entertainment systems, lighting systems, anti theft features, and all wheel drive and AWD systems.

There are certain nuances each vehicle has when it comes to its electric system, and we at STAR Automotive pay close attention to these nuances, whether you drive a Ford, Toyota, Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen or something else. The more information you can give us about your car troubles, such as when you observe the problem occurs, which parts of your vehicle are not working correctly, your vehicle’s age, the conditions you are driving in when the problem occurs, and more. You should be replacing your battery around every three years, but there are some indicators that call for a more urgent repair. Here are some signs to look out for that could indicate your vehicle needs an auto electrical service:

  • You have trouble starting your engine.
  • Your alternator light on your dashboard turns on.

A Few Words from Our Customers


Sean Wicks

"Great job guys! I brought my 1994 Impala SS in to have new bearings put in the rear end they did a fantastic job in good time for an honest price. I will be using them now for many projects that I have as well as others. Thanks again, great job."

"Ed, Dave, Travis and the rest of the team at Star Automotive were great! They quickly diagnosed the problem, a blown radiator hose, fixed it and had me back on the road the same day. I appreciated their honesty as well. I would definitely recommend and return back to this shop if I need service for my automobile. Thanks again for the great job. "

" From my first phone contact, all the way through the job, everyone was very friendly, professional, and thorough. The job seems to have been done satisfactorily. The price was a bit higher than what another local shop estimated, but you can't beat the quality service from STAR. Definitely recommend! :)"
