When a warning light illuminates on your dashboard, an engine diagnostics check can help identify the problem before more serious damage occurs. Most modern vehicles today contain an onboard computer known as an Engine Control Unit (ECU) which continually monitors the performance of the vehicle. Sensors all around the vehicle report back to the ECU if there are problems such as low fluid levels or increased engine temperature. When an issue is identified the ECU generates an error code. There are hundreds of possible 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 Right Fix we use car diagnostic equipment which can read the engine fault codes in your ECU’s memory. Our fully-trained technicians can then suggest any necessary repairs 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 into Right Fix for a low-cost diagnosis while you wait. Our equipment can also be used to reset service lights, test and adjust braking systems where an electronic handbrake is present, and adjust headlamp levels.
