Electrical Issues? Our Technicians are Experts in Heavy Truck Electrical Maintenance.

From starter service to alternator repairs to complex electrical issues, our HET certified and CVIP licensed electrical technicians are heavy-duty experts for your CAT, Cummins, International, Detroit Diesel, Hino, or Paccar engine.

What do I need to know about the electrical system of my truck?

Your heavy truck's electrical system is kind of like the wiring in your home—it's essentially circuitry and wires running to the correct terminals. And they're all interconnected in such a way that if the battery powering your engine has any problems, your truck might not be able to move an inch.

How do I know when my truck's electrical system is failing?

While the following might not be signs of total failure, they could be signs that your electrical system is on the brink of failing:

  • Poor fuel economy
  • Uneven lighting
  • Flickering truck lights
  • Problems starting the vehicle
  • Failure of the truck to move
  • Blown fuses/tubes
  • The smell of burning wires

These issues are just the tip of the iceberg, and if left unchecked, they could get worse and lead to costly problems.

It could also be a hidden problem that only a highly skilled mechanic can find. We are your go-to experts for heavy truck electrical services in Red Deer, AB because we put our customers first every time and make sure we always get to the bottom of every issue. So if you think your truck's electrical system is failing and needs a quick diagnosis, don't hesitate to reach out to us.

What does it take for a truck's electrical system to be in "tip-top" condition?

If your electrical system checks the following boxes, you're good to go:

  • There should be no shortage of power or dimming lights, even during high usage
  • All wires should be visibly clear of burn marks

When your heavy truck is in the hands of the experts at OTR Diesel & Heavy Duty Repair Inc., we won't rest until we bring its electrical system to tip-top condition. We often conduct regular battery checks, wiring harness inspection, and diagnostic troubleshooting as part of our routine heavy-duty electrical service in Red Deer, AB.

My radiator blew a hole on a Saturday evening; Paddy let me have it towed that night to his shop and went in on a Sunday for a full diagnosis. He was professional, efficient and did a fantastic job taking care of the repairs I ended up needing, in a timely manner. I recommend Paddy and OTR for everyone's automotive needs.

Went in for an oil change, found out that the oil pan was cracked and also there was damage to other parts of the car and so it turned out to be a very expensive repair. Took some extra time but was able to get all the needed parts in and car is now working great. Friendly service and quality job.

Super Happy I found a great HD mechanic in Red Deer!! Paddy @ OTR was first class in his attention to detail and finding a quick solution to get us back on the Road. We are out of Edmonton and go back and forth to calgary a lot, So having a great mechanic in the middle is perfect for those “just in case” scenarios.
