About Viking Auto Electric & Air Conditioning Repair and Service

Domestic & Foreign Auto Repair in Jacksonville

John BraunJon Braun, founder of Viking Auto Electric & Air, Inc., began rebuilding both foreign and domestic starters and alternators in the garage of his home in 1978. Viking's first business location was on Powers Avenue in Jacksonville and then moved to Phillips Highway until Jon built his current 8,000 sq. ft. building located on 4521 Sunbeam Rd. in Mandarin.

In the early days of Viking Auto, there were very few rebuilders of foreign starters and alternators like Lucas, Marelli and Bosch, so Jon decided to make this his niche. Currently, Viking Auto Electric & Air, Inc. is a full service auto repair shop that can handle just about any automotive repair imaginable..

As a young man growing up in Norway, Jon was fascinated with DC electricity and he built many contraptions that ran on this type of electricity. This led to a brief stint as a mechanic and ship engineer and then in 1969, Jon graduated from NKI Technical Institute with a 3 year degree in automobile engineering. When Jon came to the United States in the early 1970s he was employed by VW-Porche-Audi as a quality control and warranty technician. His primary responsibilities were troubleshooting wire problems and testing electrical parts like alternators and starters.
