Fault Diagnostics

With today's advanced  vehicle technology, cars are like "computers on wheels" so it is imperative that workshops have the latest diagnostic equipment and the best technical expertise and back up available if they are to provide their customers with a professional service. We systematically interrogate the vehicle not only to locate the cause of the problem but also any possible collateral damage.

We have made a major investment in the most up to date diagnostic equipment and have developed highly effective test procedures using the very latest oscilloscope. In most cases we have the ability to remedy faults without the need for outside intervention.
