BRAKES & BRAKE REPAIR

If you need brake maintenance or repair, Viking Auto Repair Electric & Air can take care of your needs quickly and affordably. Call us at 904-731-5065 or visit us in Jacksonville and we'll inspect your vehicle, provide cost-effective recommendations and get your vehicle up and running smoothly. Your brakes are a vital safety feature, so if you're unsure of their integrity, please get in touch with us right away!

Anti-Lock Brake System
Anti-lock Brake Systems (ABS) ensure that the wheels don't stop rotating during braking, preventing the car from skidding and offering greater control. If your ABS light comes on, visit Viking Auto Repair Electric & Air where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.

Brake Fluid Flushes
Brake fluid will absorb water from the air over time, causing the brake system to become less effective and the fluid to become corrosive, possibly damaging the system. It is important to perform a brake fluid flush regularly to ensure that your vehicle is using fresh fluid. Talk to our technicians at Viking Auto Repair Electric & Air about when it's time for a brake fluid flush.

Brake Hoses
A brake hose is a tube carrying pressurized brake fluid from the master cylinder to the brakes. A crushed hose can cause a lagged or slow brake, and a leak in the hose can cause the brake, or the entire brake system, to fail. These don't need to be replaced often, but should be replaced at the first sign of cracking or wear.

Brake Pad & Shoe Replacement
Brake pad problems can usually be identified by squealing brakes. If your brake pads deteriorate completely, you'll hear a grinding metal-on-metal sound when braking, meaning that it's too late and you're ruining your rotors or drums! Those with knowledge of auto repair may be able to fix this at home, but you should always see an auto repair professional immediately if you have brake problems.

Caliper Replacement
The brake caliper houses your brake pads and fits around the rotor like a clamp, pressing the pads against the rotor when you brake. A brake caliper problem could cause uneven braking, making your car slide forward when you brake. Uneven braking can also cause your vehicle to slide out of control in bad weather conditions, so contact Viking Auto Repair Electric & Air as soon as possible.

Resurface Rotors
In a disc brake system, rotors are attached to your vehicle's wheels. When the brake pads grip the rotor, they bring both the rotor and wheels to a stop. However, the friction causes grooves and cracks to appear over time. Resurfacing brings the rotor back to a "like-new" condition, reducing squealing and wobbling. Viking Auto Repair Electric & Air will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

    I brought my 2011 Honda Accord into the shop for an electrical analysis to validate I had a couple of failed actuators in the rear doors. I spoke with Harry who got out from behind the desk and came with me to the car to "take a look." Harry gave me a detailed plan of how they would determine what was wrong and I agreed to them delving into the problem. Harry asked when completing the service order, "How did you find out about our business?" I explained that I had performed a Google search and what separated Viking Auto Repair Electric and Air from the rest was Harry personally responded to each comment put on Google. With this level of customer interface, I thought I could not go wrong. This is a type of customer service rarely found. The repair was made (it was actually failed actuators on both rear doors) and the car is back 100% operational now. Car service businesses are everyone when you Google them, ones that provide this level of customer service are hard to find. Highly recommend if you have a car electrical issue. I did not have any air conditioning work done, however, I would presume the same level of expertise is there for A/C issues. Look no farther, this is your solution to electrical problems!

    I had problems with the navigation system on my car. Although Viking was not able to ultimately resolve my issue, they spent a great deal of time exploring reasons for the problem and running various tests. In the end, they referred me to the dealer to resolve the problem. Harry, at Viking was very friendly and helpful.
