Vehicle Diagnostics Essex

What Are Vehicle Diagnostics?

Most modern cars will have an ECU (Engine Control Unit) which has sensors throughout the car to alert you if an element in your car has encountered a problem and/or is not working how it should do. You’ll notice one of your engine warning lights lit up on your car’s dashboard, which should be looked into sooner rather than later to prevent further damage occurring or putting yourself in danger.

Your ECU detects signals outside of the normal operating range to trigger a light, so you should visit a specialist garage to investigate what could be causing the issue. At Power Developments, we specialise in Mercedes, BMW, Audi and MINI vehicles and our experienced and specialist knowledge in these cars means we can provide thorough car diagnostics in Essex for your luxury vehicle, so you can feel confident it is in the best hands.

What To Expect From Car Diagnostics in Essex

When you bring in your car for a diagnostic service, we will use our advanced scanning system to scan your vehicle for fault codes and identify the area of the issue. This could be anything from an issue with the engine, body control unit, ABS, audio, locking, powered steering or another element of your car.

Our diagnostic equipment will allow us to run full car diagnostics and identify and fix the fault. Unlike some other garages, we don’t just rely on fault codes to fix a problem, as fault codes only identify the location of the issue and many will use trial and error to fix the issue. Instead, we manually investigate the issue, identify it and will advise you of the best way forward such as repair work or replacement parts. By manually investigating the issue, we can help avoid any further issues occurring down the line.
