Engine Diagnostics Rotherham
Nearly all vehicle manufacturers now use OBD – on-board diagnostics, a computer-based tool built into your vehicle’s electrical systems which monitors the constant performance of some of the engine’s major components, including emission controls.
The OBD provides vehicle owners with an early warning by the way of a dashboard light (also referred to as a Engine Management Light).
Should the engine management light become illuminate whilst the car is being driven, your vehicle should be checked out as soon as possible to prevent any further damage or expense. Visiting Ridgways Garage, our technicians using the latest computer diagnostic tools will connect to your vehicle’s computer and download a fault report that can help determine the illuminated warning.
Our technicians will then inform you of the work needed to rectify your vehicles problem and the most cost effective solution helping you avoid further cost and implications.
Modern vehicles are now more reliable than ever, and the OBD system ensures that you are aware of any faults that need your urgent attention. It is also highly recommended that you also adhere to the vehicles handbook for service schedules to help avoid such issues arising.
When your car is booked in for a major service our technician will carry out an on-board diagnostic check and we will report any early warnings and provide a copy of the print out. Any problems requiring repair which fall outside of the normal service will be reported to you for authorisation.
If your car has not been serviced for some time we suggest an OBD check is carried out at that time.
