Auto Electronics Repair

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 American Brake Centers Inc. 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 American Brake Centers Inc., we can pull the code and diagnose the problem for you. Give us a call at 502-459-0355 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 American Brake Centers Inc. in Louisville, KY 40218 today.

Computer Reflashing
American Brake Centers Inc. has state-of-the-art equipment to provide computer reflashing to our customers in the Louisville 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 American Brake Centers Inc. or call us at 502-459-0355 to schedule an appointment!

Diagnostics
Mechanics at American Brake Centers Inc. are able to diagnose all the electronic parts in your car. For expert diagnostics services on your car's electronic devices, visit American Brake Centers Inc. 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 American Brake Centers Inc. in Louisville, KY 40218 today. At American Brake Centers Inc., 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 American Brake Centers Inc. today.

-Diana Hill

I can't recommend this place enough! Their customer service is top notch and they fixed the issues my truck had. I was visiting Louisville when my truck broke down. I called American Brake Center and they were very helpful and understanding of the situation. Scott did a great job at making me understand how and why my truck wasn't working properly and how to fix it. I will definitely use them again in the future!

Very very competitive brake work. Manager is thorough and knowledgeable. Will return when I need additional brake work. Update to previous brake review:. Had some additional suspension work performed today and was completely satisfied with price, performance, and service. Will make sure family and friends are aware of this facility!


-mark smith

Honest fair people


-courtney Johnson

Scott and the guys at American Brake are awesome. I have been going there for a few years now and they do great work and are honest. That's what keeps me going back!


-Tammy Carter

This guy took a car that was bordering street legality and not only made it work like new, but also did so at an extremely fair price. When other shops were quoting thousands of dollars, he said $600. When the repair needed a component that he hadn't foreseen to tell me about, he added it for only the cost of the part, not adding the cost of labor. This shop is worth your time, money, and trust.


-Logan H.

They are very helpful and they replaced my brakes quickly. He even changed my oil for free. I would highly recommend this place for both the price and the quality of service.


-Marissa E.

Being a female and not knowing much about car mechanics, it is so important for me to be assured that my car is in good hands with mechanics I trust. The guys are never pushing and always call me before any work is done to my vehicle and let me know how much it will cost and what is being done. I highly recommend American Brake on Bashford Ave. Ct. Great bunch of guys!
