Lights (Headlamps / beams / brakes) not working

How a General Inspection works with My Auto Shop:

Our qualified mechanic will look to complete a thorough inspection of your vehicle using the information you have provided via the My Auto Shop platform. To complete this the mechanic will usually start by plugging into your OBDII port and completing a complete diagnostic scan. This will highlight any error or warning codes your vehicle has and will provide the mechanic with information they. need to fix your problem.

Before completing any repairs the mechanic will complete a quote and look for your approval.

  • Burned Out Bulb
  • Malfunctioning Brake Light Switch

Popular services linked to a General Inspection:

Wiper Blade Replacement

Windscreen wiper blades are a long frame that is mounted at the bottom of the windscreen. When activated they move along the screen in a wide sweeping motion clearing water and any other debris. The arm that is mounted to the car has a rubber (or different soft plastic) blade that acts as a squeegee whilst also not scratching the windscreen.

Indicator Bulb Replacement

Letting everyone else know that you’re turning is always a good idea. To do this, car makers install indicators on your car. They’re such a good idea that the New Zealand Government made it a law that you have to have them and if they aren’t working then the Police can fine you. These small orange lights can be the difference between having an accident or not.

Reverse Light Bulb Replacement

When you’re reversing out of your driveway, car park or parallel parking in general, it’s good to know what you’re doing. Better yet, it’s good for everyone else to have a clue too! Reversing lights let the world know that you’re having a go.

Headlight Switch Replacement

Your headlights are responsible for seeing in poor conditions, as well as other motorists seeing you. They’re required for a warrant of fitness and you don’t really want them playing up. The headlight switch is what completes the circuit and if it stops working, you’ll be in deep trouble when the night comes.
