System Testing

Today's vehicles are packed with electronic control systems which run everything from the engine management to tyre pressures. Sometimes the system will pick up a fault and the information will be stored in the On Board Diagnostics System. Using the most up to date test equipment, we can plug in to your vehicle and check the system for any stored fault codes, perform live vehicle data tests and carry out a vehicle check. 

We often carry out repairs for other local garages that either don’t have the level of equipment or knowledge required to solve complicated issues with Can Bus and Linus faults, or program in new components. 

All diagnostic work is booked in for a minimum of 1 hour’s labour, which is authorised by the customer on the check in sheet, when the vehicle is dropped off. This allows us some time to access the vehicle and carry out some testing in order to formulate a test plan. Quite often we are able to diagnose the cause of the fault and rectify it in the first hour. However If we do need more time for further investigation or any parts are needed, we will first contact you for further authority. This way you always know what costs have been agreed before any work is carried out.

 

 

 

we use a wide range of specialist diagnostic equipment and training to provide an industry leading service, Far above any normal garage. It’s so good that other garages use us as well

Diagnostic Tools

Using a range of diagnostic test tools from multi scan to dealer original interfaces and software allows us to monitor live data and build an accurate picture of how the systems are operating.

Oscilloscope

Using the latest Picoscope automotive test equipment we can physically test systems and see what they are doing. This removes all guess work by allowing us to prove a fault and why its happening.

Training

we are constantly training to stay up to date on the latest systems
