Car Diagnostic Check
Has a warning light or car fault code appeared on your dashboard? This can be very worrying, especially if the engine light appears!
Today’s vehicles are far more advanced and have hundreds of sensors around the vehicle that report back to the Engine Control Unit or ECU. Some warning lights and error codes can be very difficult to diagnose, that’s why it’s important to get these checked by a professional.
At AF&MM Motors, we can help diagnose fault codes, with our state-of-the-art Engine Diagnostic test equipment to help troubleshoot system warnings and check engine lights to identify issues early before a possible component failure occurs. Our technicians can then assist with advising you of any recommended repairs to fix the problem, reset the engine management or warning light and prevent further damage in the future.
All our branches have car diagnostic tools and our branch technicians will endeavor to identify faults and fix if possible, without the need to take your vehicle back to the motor dealer.
Please don’t ignore a warning light on your vehicle’s dashboard, it could become a bigger problem later. To find out what each dashboard warning light means, please click on the related article below.
How does a Diagnostic Check work?
All modern cars contain on-board computers that monitor or control things like emissions levels, engine temperature and even windscreen wipers. When things go wrong, these computers produce error codes which can only be read with vehicle diagnostics equipment. You may see a warning light on your dashboard, but these only give a small part of the full picture.
Our car diagnostic check picks up these errors and identifies what they mean, so component failures can be prevented before they lead to further damage or expensive repairs!
Diagnostic Health Check
Not all vehicles display warning lights or fault codes when something goes wrong and an Engine Diagnostic Scan can give an early warning indicator of problems which may develop in the future.
At AF&MM Motors, we offer a ‘Diagnostic Health Check’ for just £ 49.99, which scans all the modules on your vehicle and can highlight any car faults. The scan includes;
ECM (Engine Control Module)
TCM (Transmission Control Module)
ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System)
BCM (Body Control Module)
TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System)
SAS (Steering Angle System)
Lighting and Comfort Control System
What does a Diagnostic Check include?
The diagnostic check will include a full system health check. The tool will identify all modules connected to your vehicle’s Engine Control Unit (ECU) and individually check for any stored or current faults.
The tool will identify if the fault is ‘Current’ or ‘Stored / Historic’ – any stored or historic faults will be cleared from your vehicle’s ECU memory. Any current faults will indicate that something is not as it should be, and in most circumstances, we should be able to advise what work may be required.
The diagnostic check does NOT include the cost of repairs, replacement parts, recoding, etc. Where we are unable to offer a suitable repair (i.e. electrical system faults) we provide you with the fault codes that should enable you to obtain repair quotations from a specialist.
Engine management lights may not extinguish if a fault identified is not rectified.
