We began operations in Monrovia, California in March 1976. Star Auto Electric was founded by my father. Since his passing away in 1995, we still remain a family operation. We are dedicated to supplying the automobile industry and especially consumers that own, British vehicle’s with the highest quality products available.
I began working with generators in my high school years, the first step was taking the generators apart, cleaning and preparing the generators for refurbishing, and I would see the detiorated condition the field coils and armature were in. As the years past and I became familiarize with the generators I began to assemble them as a finish product.
My goal from the very beginning was to produce the best quality refurbished unit available in the aftermarket and that is were we are today.
My forty years plus experience has been applied to the product we supply. I have hands on, on every single unit that we refurbish and that is the reason why when we refurbish a generator, the field coils and armatures are automatically replaced. Alternator stators, rotors, rectifiers, bearings and brushes are also replaced in every alternator we service.
We have the capacity of refurbishing all types of automobile generators, alternator, starters, wiper motors for English, Italian, German vehicle as we are a full line remanufacturer of electrical components.
Our product will meet or exceed original equipment manufacturers specifications.

Well the alternator you guys rebuilt just arrived, as promised. I have to say it is obvious just looking at it you and your folks take pride in your work. I doubt it looked this good coming out of the factory ( and I know since my Grandfather worked for BMC building Triumphs). I will sing your praises to fellow British car owners; I don’t know why anyone would retrofit a GM alternator for twice a much when they could get an outstanding, better than-new rebuild from Star Auto Electric!
I promise to send you photos of my 1967 E-Type from my road trip with my 15 year-old daughter. I am sure your work will do a lot better than my daughter in the summer heat, especially in a 40 year-old car without a/c.
Afterthought: You guys even restored the “Negative Ground” tag which was formerly painted over. Wow!
Please give my thanks and regards to the fine folks who work for you.
Mike, I received my rmanufactured alternator last THURSDAY (one day earlier than expected) after reinstalling it and replacing the voltage regulator EVERYTHING seems to be working GREAT. I want to THANK YOU and your team for really caring for your customers and going beyond the call of duty to make sure everything is the way it should be. I could only wish more business felt the way you do towards their customers. If you ever need any references I would be proud to give your company the highest compliment. Thank you again.
I want to thank you for all your attention and excellent service when you sent me a reconditioned alternator for my Jaguar XKE 4.2 litre Roadster. It works perfectly. Your service was all the more impressive and you sent it all the way to me in England – it arrived quickly and in excellent condition thanks to your expert packing. Thank you once again.
