Vehicle Diagnostic Service

As vehicle diagnostic systems have become more and more complex so has the need to invest in the equipment and training to use them. We have an excellent understanding of modern vehicle electronics and engine management systems and are constantly updating our equipment and keeping abreast of new developments in this technology.

If you have a warning light on your dash and would like either the error code read or just the light putting out, we can provide a fast and cost effective service which will provide you with a general diagnosis and a report of what can be done.

The diagnostic tools serve as a guide to help us to identify the problem. We would normally start with a code-read but then spend a maximum of two hours investigation time. If the fault has not been identified within that time, we would report to the customer our findings and recommendations before incurring any further labour costs. No parts would be fitted without customer consent.

Modern day vehicles are equipped with a vast array of ECUs which require dedicated computerised tools to interrogate the system when faults occur. We carry the latest up-to-date diagnostic machines enabling us to carry out engine management, ABS, Airbag and body control module - all of which must be in full working condition in order for your vehicle to pass the MOT test.

When any of the above lights are illuminated it indicates a fault with the system - we can retreive a fault code from the car's computer to enable us to carry out further tests to rectify the fault. All code are erased and warning lights put out when the fault is rectified.
