We can perform any diagnostic checks that you may require, whether it is that annoying light on the dashboard or an annual check to make sure your engine is running to its peak performance.
Diagnostic tests are used to determine what repairs are required to ensure a vehicle operates properly. On newer model vehicles, an on-board diagnostics computer interface is used in conjunction with diagnostic tools and software to help our mechanics identify problems.
All modern cars are now fitted with an engine control unit (ECU). This unit is connected to various sensors within your vehicle which will trigger a dashboard warning light if there is a problem. If you get a warning light on your dash it’s important to get it assessed as soon as you can. When you visit us for a diagnostic check, we’ll hook your car up to the diagnostic machine and test for faults. Our technicians are trained to understand the hundreds of fault codes the machine can find, so you can be sure we’ll find the problem. Once we understand what the fault it, we’ll provide you with a quote to get the problem sorted and the warning light off. Of course, we’ll only do this with your full approval.
We usually advise you to have a car diagnostic check-up if you are worried or concerned about something so that we can sort it out quickly get you back on the road as soon as possible.
*For most cars, we would recommend a vehicle diagnostic check at least once a year.
