I had the little fuse burn out in my Acura and need replacement?
Fuses protect the electrical devices in your vehicle. In the event of a power surge, the fuse will blow and become unusable. At our Colorado Springs auto shop, Trans Tech Auto & Truck, we have trained and certified car mechanics who specialize in all Acura electrical system repairs, including fuse replacements.

Some electrical systems in my Honda don’t work – maybe a fuse?
Fuses, found in the fuse box, are low-resistance resistor devices that protect the circuits in your car from excessive current.

Whether a Honda or other vehicle, there can be multiple fuses in multiple locations. The fuses need to be replaced with the specified fuse. All fuses come with the “AMP” or amperage value stamped on top of it. The fuse box will specify the correct value of fuse you need. It is simple and easy to replace and one of our trained auto mechanics can do the job and have you back on the streets of Colorado Springs in a jiffy!

If a fuse blows, is replaced, and then blows again, it indicates a problem with the electrical system. Something is causing the overload. If you are not sure, let our Colorado Springs auto repair shop help! We will:

  • Test all your fuses using a test lamp or tester
  • Remove and replace the faulty fuse

Which headlight will be a good replacement for Suzuki headlamp?
Trans Tech Auto & Truck is a recognized leader in the greater Colorado Springs area for auto electrical repair and service, including headlamp repair, whether a Suzuki, or any other make of car or truck.
