Car Diagnostic Testing
Diagnosing car problems quickly
Engine not running right? Warning light flashing on your dashboard? Airbag or anti-lock brakes (ABS) light on?
If your airbag light is on, none of your car safety systems will work in an accident!
If your ABS light is on, your car’s anti-lock braking system is switched off. It could affect your braking!
So get it checked now – the sooner the better.
Our expert technicians use the latest car diagnostic software to identify faults quickly. Phone us on 01202 742307 to book a check.
Your car diagnostic test
Modern cars are controlled by series of mini-computers. They manage your engine, automatic transmission, airbags, anti-lock brakes (ABS), stability control system (ESP), air conditioning/climate control, lighting, door locks and much more.
All your car’s onboard computers are connected to each other using one of two standard networks: CAN bus (developed by Bosch) or VAN (developed by PSA Peugeot Citroën and Renault).
We plug our Snap-on diagnostics equipment into your car. It interrogates your vehicle’s mini-computers and identifies any problems using live data and fault codes.
Diagnostic testing of Electronic Control Units (ECU)
If our diagnostic checks reveal a problem with your Electronic Control Unit (ECU), we can send it away for further testing and repair.
This avoids the cost of an expensive new unit – and the cost of reprogramming it for your vehicle.
ECU repairs come with a lifetime guarantee to the existing owner.
