Accurate Auto Electrical Diagnostics in Federal Way, WA

Your vehicle’s electrical system is a complex network of parts, including the battery, alternator, and starter. You may experience difficult startups, burning smells, or dimmed headlights if any of these parts malfunction. In worse cases, your fuse might blow frequently, or the car might not start entirely.

At Mechanic Northwest, our electrical services start with fast and accurate diagnostics. Our ASE-certified mechanics in Federal Way can do a full scan of your vehicle and pinpoint the problem. With years of solid industry experience and factory-recommended tools, we will get it right the first time.

Battery Replacement and Installation

The battery is the heart of an auto electrical system. If it dies, your car won’t start. A weak battery can also cause starting and stalling problems. We recommend having your battery tested if your vehicle is more than three years old or if you notice any of these symptoms:

  • Difficulty starting the engine
  • Sparks or burning plastic smell in the cabin
  • Dim headlights and dashboard lights
  • Malfunctioning electronics like the radio and AC, etc.

If your battery is worn beyond fixing, we can install a new one quickly and efficiently. We only use high-quality parts from trusted brands for your peace of mind.

Electrical Services

Starter Repair

The starter motor gets your vehicle going and cranks the engine when you turn the key. The solenoid in the starter draws power from the battery and fires the motor up. Common problems with these parts include a clicking noise when you turn the key, slow cranking, and startup failure.

If your starter has any of these issues above, contact our electrical services experts ASAP. We will diagnose and repair the problem so you can get back on Washington highways in no time.

Alternator Repair & Other Electrical Services in Federal Way, WA

The alternator is what keeps your battery charged while you’re driving. Your battery will rapidly drain and hit zero with a faulty alternator. If you hear a whining or growling noise while driving, its belt and pulley might have snapped or become misaligned. 

Our seasoned technicians can efficiently fix these or replace the worn alternator belts. We can also install a new solenoid or starter motor if necessary.

Mechanic Northwest offers quality repair and maintenance for domestic and foreign vehicles alike. We also perform general electrical services like headlight repairs, fuse and spark plug replacement, and wiring repair.

I usually go to pep boys.. but the customer service there has gone down A LOT. They quoted me $1100 for what they thought needed to be done. And if I still liked pep boys I would’ve paid that but then I thought I better give my money to a shop I actually like. I went to mechanic northwest and they were soooo helpful and nice and I can tell they weren’t trying to take advantage of me or overcharge me. Which me being a young girl is usually what happens at mechanic shops. They were so transparent and kept me in the loop the entire time. The lady even took the time to explain everything and show me videos of what was done. If you’re tired of big corporate chain mechanic shops, give these guys a try. I love small family owned businesses. I ended up paying way less than what pep boys was going to charge me And my car runs great! Also I had just taken my car to pep boys a couple months ago and paid $1700 and they said I should have no more problems.. just to end up with my car having trouble again after 3 months. So yea it was time for a change. I highly recommend this shop!

I have only been in Washington for a few years and was looking for a small shop with quality work and fair prices. Called Mechanics Northwest and scheduled a diagnostic. They promptly assessed the issues and provided a quote. Repairs were completed earlier than promised and within the quoted cost. I am happy to have found a shop for all my future repair needs!!

This place deserves the highest of reviews. This is my second car I have taken to them right after purchasing them, without a doubt I get very well taken care of. The guys are very professional and Alnurfo is super knowledgeable and respectful. If your looking into getting your car fixed the right way the first time this is defined the place to go to.

From the moment I met the owner of Mechanic Northwest in the rear of the shop in the parking lot until I drove away fully satisfied that my 2008 Infinity FX35 had its brake job completed ✅ I was treated with respect and friendliness in the process of doing professional work. I definitely feel that I picked the right shop to do business! Thank you for such a pleasant experience. It was totally stress free. I fully trust these people to do work on all my vehicles in the future. And I highly recommend their service. Thankful for Mechanic Northwest!! They cared about my 🚘 !

Very nice people and very thorough. They made sure I knew what was wrong with my car and even went above and beyond to give my dealership an estimate of how much the repairs would cost.

I have an oil change every 4 to 6 months. I recently moved to Fed Way and needed to find a new place. I came across this shop and made an appt. My car seems to run better after having my oil changed here. Not sure what oil they used but I definitely feel a difference in my car. I'm taking it back for a recommended fluid flush. My car is an 07 so I'm sure it needs fresh fluid.

Brought my car in to get the power window fixed (came off the track) and an inspection, got it back same-day. Great service, communicative, friendly and courteous front desk staff. Will be going back if my car ever needs new repairs.

Again, Mechanic Northwest came through for our family when our older truck broke down. They were able to quickly diagnose the problem and call to discuss what can be don. They continue to be reasonably priced & have a fast turn around. I know I can count on them to take care of our vehicle needs.

Over heated on the side of the highway and got towed here. These guys got me in right away, diagnosed the problem, fixed it, and got me on the road in no time at a fair price. They were extremely friendly and transparent. I hung out in the garage with them while they worked on it. Definitely recommend their services.
