VEHICLE DIAGNOSTICS (VEHICLE MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS)
A Vehicle diagnosis is the process of reading faults shown on your car using diagnostic equipment. Each vehicle has a number of control units which can communicate with each other allowing the vehicle to operate optimally.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF VEHICLE DIAGNOSTICS?
Diagnostic equipment is one of the most indispensible tools required for modern vehicle repair. No matter what the fault is on a vehicle it is likely that one of the many control units fitted will have to be accessed to either clear the fault memory or configure replacement parts.
Using the latest vehicle diagnostic equipment we can find your fault quicker resulting in lower labour charges.
It’s important to know whether a warning light requires immediate attention or if your vehicle is safe to drive and requires a garage to investigate it later.
If a warning light appears on your dashboard find a safe place to stop the car, turn off the ignition and remove the key for around 5 minutes. Then restart the car. If the fault is still there permanently or intermittently then give us a call on 01628 636575.
We can assist you and provide information on whether the car is safe to drive. If you continue to use your vehicle with a warning light on it may cause further damage and could be dangerous.
It’s always a good idea to keep your vehicle handbook in your car as it should give you a detailed explanation of the warning lights and what action you should take.
Whatever the vehicle we have many options of reading the fault code that caused the warning light to illuminate. Our skilled technicians are able to diagnose and advise of the next steps.
