Emergency Landscape Lighting Repair in Tulsa, OK

As a full-service residential electrician, Ampco Electric understands the value of exterior lighting for enhancing your home’s ambiance, security, and visual appeal at night. We know it’s frustrating when your landscape lights suddenly stop working and leave your yard shrouded in darkness. Trust our team for prompt after-hours emergency repairs to get your landscape lighting running again quickly.

Common Landscape Lighting Issues Requiring Emergency Repair

Outdoor landscape lighting systems exposed to weather and natural elements experience frequent problems needing electrical troubleshooting and repairs, such as:

Short Circuits

Moisture infiltration or loose, touching wires can cause short circuits tripping your lights. We’ll locate the damaged wires and make fully waterproof repairs.

Loose Connections

Vibration, expansion/contraction, and weather can loosen landscape light wires and connectors over time, interrupting lighting circuits. We re-secure all connections using corrosion-proof methods.

Corroded Wires and Terminals

Metal landscape light wires corrode when exposed to moisture, fertilizer, salt air, and other outdoor elements. This leads to lighting failures. We replace damaged wire runs and terminals.

Faulty Transformer

If your low voltage transformer overheats, fails to turn on, hums loudly, or doesn’t provide consistent lighting power flow, we’ll diagnose and replace it.

Broken Timer

For lights on an external programmable timer, we’ll troubleshoot and swap out the timer if it’s no longer functioning properly or keeping time accurately.

Burnt-Out Bulbs

We’ll survey your system and replace any burned-out incandescent, LED, or halogen bulbs causing dark spots in your lighting.

Rodent Damage

Chewed or severed landscape light wiring creates hazardous fire and shock risks. We’ll repair any damage and add protective conduit.

Accidental Wire Damage

Digging, aerating, rodents, or garden tools can accidentally slice landscape wires. We’ll splice any severed wiring runs.

Tree Roots

Expanding tree roots can crush underground light wiring, interrupting circuits. We’ll repair or re-route affected wiring as needed.

Voltage Issues

Problems with transformer voltage output, such as spikes or brownouts, can damage lighting components. We’ll troubleshoot and correct voltage regulation issues.

Failing Fixtures

Older corroded or water-damaged lighting fixtures having issues must be replaced to maintain lighting performance.

Flood Damage

Moisture seeping into fixtures causes corrosion, short circuits, and functional failures. We seal leaks and replace flooded lights.

Storm Damage

Strong winds can detach, topple, or damage landscape lighting fixtures. We’ll repair or replace any storm damaged components.


Unfortunately, outdoor lights attract occasional tampering or destruction. We’ll repair any vandalism damage discovered.
