The Diagnostic Process
Firstly we will need to gather as much information as possible about the fault, this will help us narrow down and replicate the fault saving us time and you money, our reception staff are trained in asking the right question to establish when the fault occurred. If it is a more complex fault then you can book an appointment to talk to and go for a road test with our diagnostic technician or just pop down for a chat. We understand that cars can be complicated but we are always happy to take the time to go through everything in as much detail as required.
Next we will try and replicate the fault, carry out a complete scan of the control modules on your vehicle, check any live data we need access to. we will need create a test plan for all possible causes in order to get your vehicle fixed which would include accessing any technical bulletins and dealer information required. We then start testing, if any more time is required we will always price accordingly and keep you informed in every step of the process.
The diagnostic tools we use allow us to extract Diagnostic trouble codes and information from the vehicle. These codes will relate to a component on the vehicle and will give our technicians information to where the problem lies, they then can carry out testing on the system component using other special tools like a picoscope and use they training to diagnose the problem. This means we can diagnose the problems other garages struggle to find.
