REVIEWS OF Johnny's Auto & Marine Electric IN North Carolina

Bryan Gury

When the dealer can't fix it, these guys will. A local Chrysler dealer (who I'll never visit again) replaced the PCM (powertrain control module = engine computer) and a crankshaft sensor and then the problem returned because they missed the short in the wiring harness that was the true cause of the problem. Johnny's found and fixed the real problem and it stayed fixed.

Phil Jones

Went above and beyond explaining everything and making recommendations of how to proceed with car problems. You can trust these guys.

My experience was similar to that of Taylor James who previously left a review. Please ensure you leave zero room for interpretation of the work to be completed. My car was dropped off to be rewired utilizing a wiring kit I provided. My instructions were to rewire the car with the new kit and have everything connected and working like from the factory. Everything working from the factory meaning that everything that is rewired works like from the factory. Like Taylor James, there was tons of unrequested work completed on my car. I never would have thought that by leaving the car to be rewired that my motor would end up being retuned or that bucket seat hinges would be repaired. My car was set for dyno tuning after rewiring was complete so why would I request an automotive electrician to tune my car? Meanwhile, half the car remained unwired because the bill was getting out of hand. Don't get me wrong, the quality of work is fine but if it is mostly work that is unrequested, why do it and then stick it to the customer on the tail in? Being that the shop charges by the hour, it seems like a lot of things were done to add time to increase the bill. Now, I'm sure a witty reply will be provided by the organization but I'm just sharing my experience for the next customer.

It only took them 1 hour to fix my car. I had two fuses go out on me and after that my car had power again. They were dependable and I knew I could rely on them. I talked to Patrick while I was there and he went above and beyond to make sure that everything I asked for was fixed.

Amanda Constantinides

Johnny's fixed my 2007 Eclipse Spider convertible top after Leith Mitushibishi sent us packing with no solution. Johnny's was able to source a used motor, which saved us about 50% on the repair. They have excellent customer service and a tidy shop. Highly recommend.

Gayle Payne

They gave me the information that I needed so that I replaced the old car I was using

Patrick Donleycott

Fantastic customer service, honesty, and integrity from Patrick

Chris Hoffman

These guys totally went above and beyond for me. I dropped the car of on Thursday morning. It's highly modified and had an electrical short...somewhere...that was draining the battery as it sat. They went through it top to bottom, found and fixed the problem in 3 hours. Amazing. I'm pretty handy with cars and I could have spent weeks trying to find this issue. I was very impressed.


I had an electrical issue with an '09 Dodge Journey and a P0206 diagnostic code. I took the vehicle to another shop originally and the guy replaced the injector for the #6 cylinder; however, issue came back after a few weeks. Because of this the injector was replaced a second time (under warranty). The P0206 code came back after a few days and I was told to replace the PCM. PCM replacement cost $920 from Dodge Dealership. Day after replacing PCM - P0206 code came back. After talking to some guys at a parts store they recommended Johnny's as they are more geared towards electrical issues. Johnny's found that there was an opening in one of the wires that runs to the #6 cylinder and was able to repair. However, this was after they replaced the battery ($120) and ground terminations + 9.5 hrs of labor at $90 per hour for a grand total of $1084. Overall an okay place, just wish they would have found the issue earlier instead of later as the labor hours killed me.

They are worth every penny they ask for my transmission wiring harness was burnt and it killed a lot of other stuff it took some time Tom kept me informed. They got me ready for the car show Aug 7 thanks again.

Good, Fast, Cheap: Pick two Johnny's is my go-to for quality auto electrical work done quickly at a fair price. Tom and the staff were highly accommodating when I needed the windows in my Mazda 3 diagnosed and repaired, just as they were a decade ago when I needed to track down gremlins in my Jeep Cherokee. The Mazda had been to two other shops in the area for the same issue, and both times the repairs failed just weeks later. Not so with Johnny's. I'm back to stock functionality, able to roll my windows down just in time to enjoy the half week of fall we're bound to get here in NC. Please note, the term used for pricing was "fair" not "cheap". For other reviews attempting to price-shame this shop, keep in mind that electrical systems are complex (increasingly so with further integration of computers into every corner of vehicle operation) and require a specialty focus to properly diagnose and correct. I wouldn't use the cheapest lawyer, or orthopedic surgeon, or contractor; why would I complain when another specialized service is pricing accordingly? My only complaint is a back-charge for labor completed in phase 1 (pre-hurricane Florence) that wasn't charged until completion of the work. Other than this hiccup (which is generally understandable when the whole state is staring down the barrel of a Category 4), the pricing structure and rate are in line with what I'd expect from a specialty shop.

(Translated by Google) They were kind, they attended me quickly, just that I needed to be more economically prepared $$ (Original) Fueron amables me atendieron rápido solo que ami me faltó estar más preparada economicamente$$

I had my 99 grand Cherokee go out on me after work. Got it towed up to them through " big dog towing " recommendation. I got it towed there at about 9am and turns out my starter was the problem. They got it diagnosed and fixed all in one day. Very efficient, and hard workers! Cost me $460. I will definitely be going here in future if I need it.

Colby Williams

Johnny's Auto Electric is an excellent electrical diagnostic and repair shop (and always will be). They installed my headlights with precision and it took them no time at all to get them wired up. Huge thanks to Patrick and Tom!

Andrew Jeffries

Just had some electrical work done on my boat; overall I'm satisfied with the work and would recommend this service. They replaced a DC switch panel, rewired a bilge pump, installed a voltmeter, connected a GPS/chartplotter and replaced lead wires to the battery. Overall, the fit/finish of the installation was terrific -- it's evident it's a professionally done job. All fittings were properly wrapped and heat-shrunk with appropriate fuse/surge protection integrated into the circuits. I valued the opportunity to speak twice with the actual technician who did the work; he took time to explain the work, things he found and how he solved them. The service manager was professional and accurately set expectations in completion.

INCREDIBLE service here. Honestly I couldn't be more happy or relieved. After another shop jipped me hard, and told me the completely incorrect diagnosis for what was wrong with my car, I came here for a second opinion, having estimated almost 1000$ in repairs from the previous shop. All said and done I paid $303 for an amazing repair job that got my car back up to code and able to register and get new plates. These guys were friendly, understanding, empathetic, and accommodating, and above all they were honest. I highly recommend utilizing their service for your auto repair needs at any point and you can count on good quality, honest, impeccable work to be done at a fair price.

I had an electrical problem with my 2004 Lincoln Town Car that no one could seem to figure out. I took it to Johnny's Auto & Marine Electric. They were very patient while I babbled on about what was going on with my car and they found the problem and were able to offer me an affordable solution. I am so grateful to these guys and I absolutely recommend them for their automotive skills, professionalism and friendly service. They are the best! Thank you Tom and Hector!

I was referred by my Tow Driver after several Mechanics attempted to fix my electrical issues on my Toyota . Coming from the Customer Service Industries I have high expectations as a general rule. From Dwight to Tom I could not be more happier. They not only diagnosed the issue with 24 hours and had it repaired the very next day. It gets better they were closed by the time i got off work , I asked Dwight if he could leave my key in car not informing him that it was the only key I owned , arrived on a Saturday during none business hours and again Dwight saved the day showing up on his day off to fine out I only owned 1 key not only did he greet me with an amazing warm welcome he offers sum of his own freshly picked tomatoes and called a local Awesome locksmith to unlock my car. So when I tell you these guys are the most professional team that i've ever encountered I truly mean it!!! I just had to give him a big hug they made my day. Thank You again I will be a returning client and suggest anyone with electrical issues these are the guys you want to bring your vehicle to. Five Stars Customer Service!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Fung Szeto


He lied to me about fixing my jeep. I wanted them to find out why it wasn't starting. He said they found out why after looking at it for 2 hours. Which was $140 an hour. Then said the total was $375 plus an extra$400 if I wanted it to tun smooth. It ran great just wouldn't start. He said it ran like garbage. I said just fix it for $375 and I will look at it. I picked it up after hours because I worked late. It ran like garbage all the way home. I looked under the hood and one of my spark plug wires was off. Put it on and it ran great again. He was going to try and get another$400 out of my wallet for that. Then he also charged me for $140 an hour for 2 hours to find the problem. In that 2 hours he didn't see the spark plug wire was off. This guy Tom at the shop is a crook and I will never recommend them to anyone. Stay away.
