When a warning lamp illuminates on your dashboard, a diagnostics check can help identify the problem before more serious damage occurs.
Most modern vehicles today contain an on-board computers known as an Electronic Control Unit (ECU) which continually monitors the performance of the vehicle. Sensors all around the vehicle report back to the ECUs and if there is an issue identified the ECU generates an error code.
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.
At M.C.S. we use state of the art diagnostic equipment which can read the fault codes in your ECU’s memory. We can then suggest any necessary repairs to get you back on the road and rectify the error. Next time a dashboard warning light appears in your car, don’t pay vehicle dealership prices for your diagnostics check, call us to book for a diagnosis check.
