Vehicle Diagnostics

Faults with your vehicle are not always easy to spot. Your car may drive sluggishly or handle differently on the road, both signs that there is a problem with your vehicle. We offer an effective fault-finding service for all makes and models of car. Using the latest diagnostic computerised and non-computerised technologies as well as our wealth of knowledge we will find the problem quickly on both petrol and diesel engines.

BS Car Services uses professional equipment for vehicle diagnostics which can read the engine fault codes in your ECU’s memory. Our fully-trained technicians can then suggest any necessary repairs to get you back on the road and rectify the error so there is no need to pay vehicle dealership prices for your diagnostics check next time a dashboard warning light appears in your car.

What is a diagnostics check?

When a car warning light illuminates on your dashboard, an engine diagnostics check can help identify the problem before more serious damage occurs.

Most modern vehicles today contain an on-board computer known as an Engine Control Unit (ECU) which continually monitors the performance of the vehicle. Sensors all around the vehicle report back to the ECU if there are problems such as low fluid levels or increased engine temperature. When an issue is identified the ECU generates an error code. The relevant dashboard warning lights will then be displayed.

There are literally hundreds of potential error codes that can only be read by specialist vehicle diagnostic equipment. While a warning light may display on the dashboard alerting you to an issue, a diagnostics check is required to understand the full extent and cause of the problem.
