Car Diagnostics, Norwich
When car warning lights illuminate on your dashboard, an engine diagnostics check can help identify the problem before more serious and long term damage occurs. Most vehicles contain an on-board computer known as an Engine Control Unit which continually monitors the performance of the vehicle. Sensors all around the vehicle report back to the ECU and if an issue is identified the ECU generates an error code. The relevant dashboard warning lights will be displayed.
There are literally “hundreds” of potential error codes that can only be read by specialist vehicle diagnostic equipment and we can read at least 98% of faults (unfortunately expensive dealerships lock out ‘all’ independents from some data!). While a warning light may display on the dashboard alerting you to an issue, a diagnostics check is required to understand the full extent and cause of the problem, as there may be more than one fault and more than one issue!
All manner of things can be diagnosed this way*:
- Anti-lock Braking Systems (ABS)
- Engine Management
- Alarm / Immobiliser
- Fuel Injection Systems
- Diesel Management Systems
- Airbag / SRS Systems
- CANbus Systems
- Service Light Resetting
At STR we can read the engine fault codes in your ECU’s memory and our fully-trained technicians can then suggest any necessary repairs to get you back on the road and try to rectify the error. We offer a FREE diagnostics check with every service. *Note: unless manufacturer’s have blocked access to the system
