Vehicle Diagnostics and Fault Finding in Redhill

Problem with your car?

The right diagnostics can stop a simple fault becoming a major one. There are a range of sensors both inside and outside of your car that can alert you to a problem, and some of them are very simple fixes, however some require a little more investigation.

Contact us now for a fast appointment.

We have the up to date diagnostic equipment to help find the fault.

Using specialised equipment connected directly to your car, we analyse where there are problems, identify the cause of the fault, and what needs to be done to resolve it. We’ll then provide you with a quote to fix the issue.

 

Why run diagnostic tests?

Diagnostics are fast to run and mean that small issues can be resolved before they cause major problems with your car. Many issues with modern cars are caused by the sensors and other electronic components connected to the computer – making them difficult and sometimes impossible to identify until after major damage has been done.

By identifying these problems early, you could save huge amounts of money in repair bills.

 

How long do car diagnostics take?

Traditionally diagnostics were completed manually by your mechanic and may have taken many hours of work, but with the right equipment a trained mechanic can now identify problems much faster.

 

Do I have to pay for a diagnostic?

Diagnostic tests are chargeable as they still involve specialist equipment, and specialist knowledge to interpret the results. The cost of the test will depend on the type of car and the reasons we need to carry it out, but we will provide you with a quote to run the test before you start to avoid any unwanted surprises.
