At Cannon’s Auto & Electric, we have more than 60 years of combined experience working on all types of vehicles and boats, including classic cars, diesel trucks, and hybrids. If it has wheels or a rudder, we can fix it! Our mechanics also do a lot of specialty work, including electrical diagnostics and repairs, rewiring, rebuilding starters and alternators (we sell new as well), making custom battery cables, and installing power inverters. In fact, other auto shops and parts stores in the Charleston area send electrical work our way because they know we can handle it, and we love a challenge!
As our name suggests, electrical repairs are hands-down our specialty at Cannon’s Auto & Electric. Our mechanics can solve just about any electrical issue no matter how complex, and even rewire an entire car if necessary. Our electrical prowess is well-known in Charleston, and we’re proud of the referrals we get from other auto repair shops, body shops, and parts stores. If you’re experience an electrical issue with your vehicle, don’t hesitate to call us.
Car air conditioners lose about 5% of their original efficiency per year without regular maintenance. In other words, if you haven’t had your A/C checked out in some time, it could be performing as poorly as another vehicle years older! The good news is we can recover most of that lost efficiency with service, and possibly an A/C recharge. We’re also experts at air conditioning repair, and can fix a faulty condenser or computer issue in no time.
Whether you’re experiencing symptoms of a problem while driving or not, if your vehicle’s service-engine-soon light is on, you need to have it checked out. Maybe the issue is minor, but it could turn major quickly, leaving you with expensive repairs or a ruined engine. A glowing check engine light could also be the result of a faulty sensor or electrical issue, which is our area of expertise. Regardless, we’ll fix the problem—big or small—correctly the first time.
Our mechanics can rebuild alternators and starters for all vehicles, which saves you money and reduces waste. Our alternator and starter services are not limited to just automobiles but also to marine, industrial, farming, trucking and construction vehicles. When an alternator or starter is failing, it’s unlikely all its components are bad. With a rebuild, you keep what’s good and replace what’s needed—no more and no less. If rebuilding isn’t an option, we also sell and install new alternators and starters.
We do tire repairs, including tire plugs and replacements, and selling used tires. Come to us the next time you have a flat or need a replacement tire at a good price, and we’ll make sure you get the best deal for your budget, while never sacrificing your vehicle’s safety or performance. We understand tires are an investment, and you want to get the most wear and longevity for the money you’ve spent.
