Ron is the owner and I can't tell you enough, that this is one incredibly intelligent repairman, not only did he take more than an hour of his time to diagnose and explain my problem, but he did it without charge. My family and I were touring the countryside when at a stop my Chrysler Minivan starter fried, smoke came from under the hood. No power; windows, radio etc. wouldn't work. Stranded on a weekend in a Mayberrylike town of Granville, I managed to replace the starter and battery. Still nothing, I couldn't understand why the car wouldn't respond. Monday, the local Chrysler dealership said that the inline fuses were blown and wanted me to have the car towed in and for $90/hr. they'd work on it. Dejected I sought the advice from a local auto parts place and he recommended Ron at Newark Auto Electric. I described the problem to Ron and he showed me one area on the fuse panel on a similar van where the inline fuse is. He said that if I grabbed it and it gave, that's something easy to replace. But some of the sympton's didn't point to that, so he broke out the schematics and traced the lines. He found that the symptoms described pointed to a 40 amp fuse in the panel. As a backup, he gave me a jumper wire and told me how I could bypass the ignition system and as long as the key was turned on, I could activate the starter and drive back to his shop and he'd have the problem solved in no time. I went back to my car, checked the fuse and sure enough, that was the culpret. I drove back to his shop and offered to pay him for his troubles, he refused. I asked what beer he like and obliged him with his favorite beer. The man was truly a good Samaritan.

Alternator went out on my Accord, one shop said $300, the dealer said $400. When I took it to this shop the guy said an after market would be junk compared to the original. Because I was stranded 80 miles from home he stayed over to the thing appart rebuilt it and I to force him to take 20 bucks! Never had another problem! Second trip with a different car same story, found the short, fixed it over lunch just great. If your near there with electrical problems and go somewhere else you're nuts.
