All cars now have some form of engine management systems or Computer diagnostics and many other kinds of technology on board. They run and monitor the internal & external workings of your vehicle every time we start, stop, move or operate it.
One of their most important functions is to warn you if the vehicle is not performing as determined it should do by it's manufacturer. This not only ensures the efficient running of the vehicle more importantly keeps us safe by monitoring the engine, safety systems, ABS braking, Anti-Slip, engine coolants and so much more to let us know when they are not operating correctly or safely.
When you book a Full service we will automatically FREE OF CHARGE (normally £45) include a vehicle fault diagnosis as part of the service we provide.
We have taken a keen interest in the use of computer based diagnostic solutions and recently invested to upgrade to the latest equipment on the market to ensure we are able to deal with virtually every vehicle on the road today. This combined with our knowledge of vehicles and their systems we are able to read and interpret the results from the vehicle computer, diagnose the problem and recommend a suitable solution.
Whatever your vehicle, we are able to connect to your car, read the "fault" that caused the light to illuminate and begin to diagnose the cause. It is a combination of the skills and knowledge of the mechanic interpreting the diagnostics from the computer that will determine the quality and accuracy of any remedial work done.
Since the Block Exemptions Regulation introduced in 2003 it's possible to have your vehicle serviced at an independent garage without invalidating its warranty. We use only genuine vehicle manufacturer parts when required and always adhere to the manufacturer's prescribed schedule, ensuring protection of your warranty at every turn. Complying with the manufacturer's recommended servicing intervals doesn't just protect your car and its warranty, it also maintains resale value.
