VEHICLE DIAGNOSTICS

Dashboard warning light on? Don't panic, follow these initial steps

Find a safe place to stop the car

Turn off the ignition for at least 5 minutes

Restart the vehicle

If the fault light persists, either permanently or intermittently, we would advise you have the car inspected using our state of the art Snap-On Diagnostics computer.

Continued use of your vehicle with any of the warning lights illuminated may lead to the car being unsafe or long term damage and we would recommend inspection as soon as possible if the problem persists.

All cars are now fitted with computers and a myriad of technology to run and monitor the internal workings of the vehicle. One of the most important functions these computers provide is ensuring your car is operating within the manufacturers parameters; the engine, safety systems (ABS, Anti-Slip etc. etc.) are all operating correctly and safely.

    OUR STATE OF THE ART SNAP ON DIAGNOSTIC COMPUTER

Most people usually only become aware of the functions of these computers when one of the fault warming indicators illuminates on the dashboard (there is usually at least an Engine warning light, an ABS warning lightand an Oil Pressure warning light) and consult the vehicle owners manual to read “proceed to an authorized dealer as soon as possible”…. “This could indicate a serious problem”.

Often the warning light will indicate a fault that could be corrected by simply turning the ignition off, waiting a moment and re-starting the car. However, there would always be a reason the light illuminated.

Diagnosing the dashboard indicator light?

Whatever vehicle, using one of our diagnostic computers we are able to connect to your car, read the “fault” that caused the light to illuminate and begin to diagnose the probable cause. However, due to the nature of cars and their systems, one of the main skills is using the knowledge of the vehicle diagnostics computer, together with modern vehicle systems to correctly diagnose the vehicle fault.

At G & R Vehicle Repairs we have taken a keen interest in the use of computer based diagnostic solutions and invested heavily in the latest equipment to ensure we are able to deal with most vehicles on the roads today.

Using the latest manufacturer recommended solutions from Snap-On, 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 resolution.

As part of your routine service

As part of any vehicle service schedule we will interrogate your cars diagnostic computer to read any possible messages and advise you of any possible further investigation required.
