diagnosticsThere are many lights on the dash of a modern vehicle

Some are more important than others and cannot be ignored

TALKING TO THE CAR

Using an interface with the car, we communicate with the ECU and identify the components

Identification of faulty components and their operation leads to a quicker diagnosis and repair.

In many cases 'real-time' data can be viewed by the technician as the engine is running.
