In addition we are able to provide a unique service: we possess diagnostic equipment for most makes & models. 

Engine warning symbols have never been more important to take note of. Warning lights are fitted to instruct the driver that there is a fault within the car that needs repair. Whilst some dashboard warning lights can be specific to a certain make or model of car, others are universally recognised. Your car’s handbook will explain what all the various dashboard warning lights mean and how severe the problem could be.

Initial Assessment

If your car is displaying a warning light we advise you have it checked by a professional. The first stage in identifying and assessing a vehicle fault is our Diagnostic Initial Assessment. In most modern vehicles, we can ‘talk’ to your on-board diagnostics computer interface using our diagnostic tools including Autologic. Some vehicles can carry 40 or 50 separate ECU’s (Electronic Control Unit’s). These control everything from your seat and mirror adjustments to your brakes, suspension and engine. A small glitch in a network may cause chaos and manifest itself in all kinds of ways within your car.

Our ‘Diagnostics Assessment’ costs £60+VAT, covering initial first hour and a number of other factors including:

  • Online Charges (manufacturer information)
  • Manufacturer Technical Service Bulletins
  • Full System Scan for Fault Codes
  • Translating Relevant Fault Codes
  • Software Updates
  • Creating a Test Plan
  • Diagnostic Equipment (over £30K)
  • Annual Subscriptions
  • Industry Training
  • Small Scale Repairs
