    Looking for a shop for auto electrical issues

    My 2004 Ford Expedition is having electrical issues. I need to find a good shop preferably near North Bellmore who can troubleshoot and resolve the issue.

    The issue I am having is that my car would not start today and no electrical was working including the remote connected to my remote start to unlock the doors. When I manually unlocked the doors and tried to start the car I noticed a relay clicking. I pulled off the cover for the fuses and relays and pulled one relay at a time but even after pulling all the relays I could not find which one was causing the issue. I am pretty sure that the issue is related to the humidity we had over the weekend as the car was fine on Friday and I had a similar issue where the car wouldn't start and then was fine a few days later.

    check all connections on the battery and its wires , if you have the large electrical connections under the plastic covers passenger side by firewall , look under there also . might just be dirty loose connections.
    if nothing there looks unruly check the wiring by the starter, there is a power strap that rots out also .
    i do not know of a shop any more to recommend

      Did you try cleaning your battery contacts? Sounds stupid but it's an easy thing to try. That relay clicking could be low voltage from a corroded contact that also can intermittently cause total power loss. Go to autozone and get a terminal cleaner for $5 and try it.
      Know your rights/Refuse peacefully to consent to a search /Ask if you are free to go or are being detained/Even if you are not doing anything wrong the 4th Amendment protects you against unreasonable searches/Never say anything to law enforcement even if you think it will help you/If questioned you should clearly and unequivocally request that you would like to have an attorney present and defer any questions until then/Never go to prison because you are afraid to go to jail.

        When I had a similar problem a month or so ago the terminals were clean and tight. I will double check in the morning though.
