If your car has lights showing on your dashboard, especially your engine management light, it's a good indication you need to get your car checked to see what is going faulty on your vehicle. You may be losing power or your vehicle could be making strange noises.
Using the latest diagnostic equipment, we plugin into your vehicles ECU and diagnose the codes that are logged in the system, this will indicate where the fault could be. We then investigate the issue, diagnose and rectify the fault with your vehicle and have you back on the road.
The modern engine has a number of sensors which continually report to the vehicles ECU, the readings and measurements from the various sensors. When a fault develops within the engine, the ECU normally logs the reported measurement error or engine fault code. We can use these fault codes to diagnose what is causing the issue with your engine. Once we have investigated the fault and diagnosed the offending part or parts, we can effectively repair the fault.
If your vehicle is a modern engine which uses an ECU, or if it's an older engine without a complicated system of sensors and a ECU, we can effectively diagnose and repair all makes and model of vehicle.
With our state of the art diagnostic equipment, we are able to diagnose and repair all types of electrical faults across a wide range of vehicle makes and models.
We can test your vehicle's electrical systems and diagnose faults across the vehicle, indcluding your vehicles lights, central locking, electric windows, alarm and entertainment system.
ABS - Brake Faults
We can carry out brake fault diagnostics on your vehicles braking system. So if you're experiencing a brake warning light or ABS warning light illumintaed on your dashboard, brakes binding, brakes squealing, loss of pedal, brakes pulling or locking, or any other brake fault.
We are able to diagnose and repair the majority of braking system faults.
When your airbag system develops a fault, you may experience a light being illuminated on your dashboard. This can be caused by the airbag unit itself, with a faulty deployment system or just a case of a break in the circuit or poor connection.
We are able to diagnose airbag faults and rectify and replace where required.
Your diesel vehicle may need DPF re-generation from time to time, this is usually the case if you don't often drive on motorways or at constant sustained speeds.
A DPF regeneration is where the DPF is in effect cleaned of the particles it has collected whilst you have beend driving your vehicle. This is not a fault, the filter is designed to do this, but the filter self re-generates during motorway driving, where it's given time to heat up and expel the particles.
DPF Regeneration will extend the life of your filter if you only use your vehicle for short local driving.
