Car Diagnostic

Automotive Diagnostics Services

Whether your vehicle is exhibiting signs of a problem or you noticed the “Check Engine” light glowing, a quick diagnostic test by a skilled and knowledable technician can identify the problem.

Using Computer Diagnostics

It should come as no surprise that computers, microprocessors and sensors are used to run virtually every component and system in our car, truck, SUV and minivan. And as you might imagine, these electronic devices are expensive to replace, with prices ranging from a few hundred dollars to thousands.

Troubleshooting even the most basic problems can be incredibly complicated, if for no other reason than these computer-controlled systems are so complex. This is to say that repairing a problem first demands a correct diagnosis.

Diagnostic tools help identify problems quickly and reliably, without the need for a full vehicle inspection. After all, you can’t fix your car if you don’t know what’s wrong with it. After your vehicle’s on-board computer has been scanned and the diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) have been retrieved, the malfunction can then be diagnosed and repairs can begin.

Expert Advice from the Right People

Some technicians, however, try to repair problems by trial and error. Not only is this time-consuming, inefficient and potentially expensive, but you could end up with unnecessarily replacing the wrong part, which doesn’t even fix the original problem. We should also note that not all technicians are trained and equipped with the right diagnostic tools.
