Import Computerized Diagnostics

we specialize in Mercedes, BMW, Volvo, Audi & VW.

Cars today are more complex than ever. Vehicles are now equipped with multiple computer systems. OBD systems give the vehicle owner or repair technician access to the status of the various vehicle sub-systems. OBD serves as an early warning system that alerts you to the potential need for vehicle repair through the “Check Engine” light on the dashboard of your vehicle. OBD also plays a critical role in passing Maryland emissions. This “Check Engine” can illuminate for a wide variety of reasons. Redd’s Automotive offers computerized diagnostics for import cars as well as domestic. With our state of the art technology and ASE certified technicians, we will work closely with you to diagnose and repair your vehicle.

Electrical Repair

Redds is your friendly neighborhood shop

The three major components of a car’s electrical system are the battery, starter, and the alternator.

Battery

The battery is the backbone to your vehicles electrical system. The battery provides power to your vehicles electrical system and maintains a charge through the alternator. Battery performance can be hindered by several factors; therefore, we recommend changing your battery every three years and getting it checked at every oil change. Redd’s Automotive in Annapolis offers battery replacement for import vehicles as well as domestic.

Starter

A very important component of your vehicle is your starter. When you turn your ignition key, the starter cranks the engine to get it running. If you have difficulty starting your car, or hear irregular noises when starting your car, these things may be signs of a future starter malfunction. We specialize in electrical starter repairs and will be sure to get you and your vehicle back on the road in no time.

Alternator

Your vehicle’s electrical system maintains a charge through the alternator. The alternator is an electromechanical device that transfers mechanical energy into an electrical current. In a nutshell, the alternator charges your car battery while the engine is running. It is important to understand that the alternator can be stressed by a variety of electrical components. Some signs of your alternator deteriorating may be loss of battery power or electrical power (dimming headlights), and also the inability to start your engine. Redd’s Automotive can help with your alternator malfunction or any other electrical auto issues.
