Diagnostic test and why it’s Important!

When it comes to your car, there can be hundreds of things that go wrong. Your vehicle’s engine control unit ensures that you’re notified when there’s a problem, but it’s still difficult to pinpoint exactly where the problem is coming from without taking apart your car. A diagnostic test enables us to find the problem without having to dig deep into the depths of your vehicle. Mobile Brakes and Tyres Limited can quickly and accurately find out what the problem is, so we can get your car back to you faster.

All vehicles have a complex engine management and diagnostic system. This ensures that all components within the car are operating efficiently. When your car experiences a problem, it notifies you to let you know that something needs attention. At Mobile Brakes and Tyres Limited, we provide expert diagnostic tools to find out exactly what’s going on with your car.

Diagnostic testing and how does it work!

When it comes to finding the cause of a problem in your car, it can be quite complex. When it’s not visibly obvious where repairs are needed, mechanics will have to take apart your vehicle to find the issue. To avoid doing this, we invest in the latest equipment when it comes to diagnostic testing. It works with any make or model of vehicle to get to the bottom of the problem. The equipment is hooked up to your car, which then identifies which vehicle it is looking for. The fault scanner contains data of every vehicle settings, so it knows what levels your car should be at. If any discrepancies are found, it’ll flag it up and present a code to the mechanic. Once we’ve got the specific code, our technicians can translate them, so they know exactly where the problem lies and can provide you with an accurate quote for the work.
