What is a diagnostics check?

When car warning lights illuminate on your dashboard, an engine diagnostics check can help identify the problem quickly.

Most modern vehicles today contain an on-board computer known as an Engine Control Unit (ECU) which monitors the vehicles performance. Sensors placed around the vehicle constantly measure and report back to the ECU, when an issue is identified it reports it back to the ECU in the form of an error code. The relevant warning lights will then be illuminated on the dashboard.

There are literally hundreds of error codes which can only be read by specialist Car Diagnostic equipment and software. While a warning light may be illuminated on the dashboard alerting you to a potential issue, a diagnostic check is required to understand the full extent and cause of the problem.

Our car diagnostic check reads the errors and identifies what they mean, so component failures can be prevented before they lead to further damage.
