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 Alternative Automotive 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 Alternative Automotive, we can pull the code and diagnose the problem for you. Give us a call at 760-480-0851 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 Alternative Automotive in Escondido, CA 92029 today.

Computer Reflashing
Alternative Automotive has state-of-the-art equipment to provide computer reflashing to our customers in the Escondido 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 Alternative Automotive or call us at 760-480-0851 to schedule an appointment!

Diagnostics
Mechanics at Alternative Automotive are able to diagnose all the electronic parts in your car. For expert diagnostics services on your car's electronic devices, visit Alternative Automotive 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 Alternative Automotive in Escondido, CA 92029 today. At Alternative Automotive, 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 Alternative Automotive today.

Crazy noise and then smell burning rubber, never good. Got it towed to Alternative Automotive and they diagnosed, fixed and got it back to me for less than I expected! I trust them.

This is the best auto repair/maintenance shop in North County. Forget the dealerships who pace themselves while repairing your car.

I don't have to worry about whether it was done right since I haven't had any problems since going here. I definitely recommend Alternative Automotive since Daniel listens to my concerns and then addresses them. He even replaced the battery in my remote!

Absolutely would not take my car anywhere else for service. All the staff including the manager Stephen were kind, polite. My residence is 30 min away, so having a calm and quiet lounge was a plus. It's worth the drive to get the best mechanics to work on your vehicle.! Gigi (*I legally changed my name)
