"What is a Car Diagnostic Test?"
To perform a Car Diagnostic Test, we connect our specialist, state of the art diagnostics tools in Southampton to your car. All modern cars are produced with an Engine Control Unit (ECU). The ECU acts as the "brain" of your car's engine, controlling the engine processes that get your car moving. It also receives and stores all manner of messages sent by sensors situated throughout your car. Some of these messages report errors or damage within the car's engine. If these errors are deemed serious enough, the ECU will trigger a warning light on your car's dashboard to inform you that you need to book a Diagnostic Test.
Get a Diagnostics Test with your Car's Annual Service
It can be beneficial to run a Car Diagnostics Test when you have your annual service. Even if there are no warning lights flashing on your dashboard, there may still be issues building in your engine. By checking the ECU with a Car Diagnostics Test, we can see these issues building and act to rectify them before they become a major issue (and potentially a major expense!).
