We have and will continue to invest in, up-to-date diagnostic equipment. This enables us to keep ahead of the ever-changing industry we are working in. Our equipment has the ability to cover 90% of vehicles – from in-depth diagnostic work to resetting service indicators.
Modern vehicles are packed with electronics. We have the ability and the staff to take on diagnostic faults, analyse them, break them down, and finally find and rectify the faults. We have both the knowledge and equipment to diagnose and repair faults in:
- Engine Management
- Fuel Injection
- Anti-lock Braking Systems
Code Read – Stage 1
If your vehicle has a fault light on we will plug it into the relevant diagnostic equipment and read the fault codes. The codes will be cleared (in order to eliminate any old fault codes stored in the vehicle).
If the code cannot be cleared we would have to start the diagnostic procedure in order to find the cause. If your vehicle has a recurring fault, you may need to drive it, in order to put the fault back into the system. If this is the case this should happen within 2 weeks in which case we will plug your vehicle back in free of charge to see if the same faults occur. If they do, we will need to proceed to Diagnostics – Stage 2.
Diagnostics – Stage 2
Once we have determined which fault codes are causing problems to your vehicle, we can start the diagnostic procedure. The initial diagnostic investigation is an hour, although in some cases it may take longer. If this happens we will contact you for authorisation before continuing.
Please be aware, due to the complexity of modern vehicles, curing an ongoing fault can possibly highlight a further fault which wasn’t showing before.
