If you see a warning light on your vehicle dashboard, you may require an engine diagnostic check to identify any potential problems.
Nowadays, modern vehicles have an onboard computer called an ECU (Engine Control Unit). Sensors around your vehicle continually monitor performance, alerting the ECU if any problems occur. A modern car can produce thousands of different fault codes and warning messages, having the correct equipment and expertise to read the codes is vital in diagnosing any potential problems.
Sensors in your vehicle continually report to the ECU (Engine Control Unit) on how they are performing. If a problem occurs, it logs a fault code on the ECU’s memory. A diagnostic code reader has to be used to read the fault or message and to clear any fault codes from the memory.
We can’t stress enough how important it is to get a warning light investigated as soon as possible. If you ignore the light you are risking major damage and potentially an expensive repair bill. Our branches have a range of the latest Snap-On and Delphi diagnostic tools that quickly find the root of the problem.
The cost of our diagnostics is fixed at £39.95 in all our branches.
If we discover problems with your engine or other components we’ll provide you with a free, no-obligation repair quote.
The ECU can pick up problems with emission levels, engine temperatures and even windscreen wipers. You may see a warning light on your dashboard but this only gives you a very small part of the picture. Our diagnostic health checks read these error messages and identify the root cause, so component failures can be prevented before they lead to further damage and expensive repairs.
We use different systems in a variety of branches as this gives us a much wider coverage than most other independent garages.
No. The cost of diagnostics in all our branches is fixed at £39.95. However, it’s important to know that this is to diagnose the problem. Depending on the fault code, it may be that your vehicle has a component that has failed and needs replacing. If that is the case then we can provide you with a fully fitted quote for the component or repair.
