We are currently in Port Augusta and received advice yesterday from a garage servicing our car that our "charging system" is not working - which came as a complete surprise [our two under bonnet batteries seem to be well charged]. On Monday we are moving on to the Yorke and then the Fleureau Peninsulas.
I would be grateful for any advice on where I can find a good auto electrician in this region to check out our dual battery system, preferably if possible on the Yorke Pen.

Sorry, but I can't remember their name, but they gave me excellent service last year.
They are located on the right, about 500 metres from McDonalds heading back towards Port Augusta.

Ralph's Auto Electrical on the Hwy in Port Augusta would be the one you're thinking of.

Ralphs closed about 3-4 years ago after Ralph sold the business and another guy bought it, had a few business issues and closed it and moved.

You could try G.P Auto Electrical in Pt Augusta..... had business dealing with them and they seem very good and the reps from businesses we buy from talk highly of them.

Yo make mention that you will be going to the Yorke and then the Fleureau Peninsulas....... mate each places cover a big area, where abouts on the Yorke and then the Fleureau Peninsulas will you be going.

G'day Lynton.
This guy is pretty big in Port Pirie.
Haven't heard any negatives about him.

Coe's Auto Electrical
Address: 75 Esmond Rd, Port Pirie SA 5540
Phone:(08) 8633 2678

It's worth looking around Pirie for a day or two before you move on. Some historic stuff there, and all services.
It's about a 2km walk to the caravan park on Beach Rd, if needed.

Cheers
Bob

Lynton B,

I agree Neville Coe and his son Viv in Port Pirie know the Auto electrics.

They relocated and expanded the business approx 2 years ago, and it's a family business. Nev is well known, and been in Pirie for Years and years.

Cheers P&J

Thank P&J: The charging system seems to be performing adequately at the moment; but if I have any dramas shortly after leaving PA, Coe's will be my first port of call.

If your coming to Moonta on Yorke Peninsula there is a auto electrician on the right hand side of the road coming in from Kadina or a mobile fella as well, just ask when and if you get here to Moonta.

Hi Brian
Everything seems OK at the moment. We are in Port Pirie and should be in Kadina before the end of the week. Will make an appointment to see Copper Coast Auto Electrical then. Will let you know how we go.
Thanks again for your interest.

Hi Lynton

If by any chance you are passing through Clare, Paul at Clare Valley Auto Electrical is very good.

If you need any further details you let me know.
