Vehicle Diagnostics in Petts Wood & Orpington | JAW Automotive
Not all garages take the same approach to investing in their premises. Independent mechanics, in particular, can be prone to sticking with old equipment even when the time has come to move on. Not at JAW Automotive. Here, it’s always been important to us to invest in quality engine management equipment. This allows us to quickly and precisely handle vehicle diagnostics, analysing engine subsystems and retrieving the fault codes they might carry. Without said equipment, we can’t do that – so it’s a no brainer why we continually invest in vehicle diagnostics equipment, benefitting discerning clients in Orpington, Petts Wood and surrounding areas.
But how exactly do our mechanics go about vehicle diagnostics? What’s it all about?
Modern vehicles are fitted with an Engine Control Unit (ECU). The ECU has a port which our mechanics can interface with to retrieve and decipher fault codes, which the ECU will retain after a problem occurs. Motorists may first become aware of these faults after warning lights illuminate on their dashboards.
These fault codes quickly inform us of exactly where the problem lies. This lets us recommend the suitable method of repair
to our customers, saving them time and money when compared with traditional, under the hood diagnostics, which can take a lot longer to complete. Vehicle diagnostics is thus one of the most important garage services we provide to our clients in Orpington, Petts Wood and the wider area.
