Practically all current cars are fitted with a central computer or ECU, which is effectively the ‘brain’ that controls all the electro–mechanical systems in the car. It is the ECU that triggers the warning lights on the dashboard, and also records any fault codes for problems that occur when the car is in use. In an ideal world, a fault code would indicate a single problem, which could then be put right, but it’s never really as simple as that. This is where diagnostics comes in.

A diagnostic test is a way of determining what is wrong with a vehicle by testing the systems within the vehicle, looking for anything that is outside the ideal specification. It is a skilled job, usually involving electronic diagnostic tools. Diagnostics have been compared to the function of a detective – the technician assembles a series of facts and then uses his or her experience and technical knowledge to conclude where the fault lies. In the same way that an engine warning light can be triggered by multiple faults, in diagnostic testing, a test result can be attributed to multiple system faults. The job of the technician is to isolate the single biggest probable cause, remove it, and then see if the problem has gone away. An unskilled mechanic can spend hours or even days chasing down a fault, and it all costs money. Put your vehicle problems into the skilled hands of the AutoMend approved mechanics located close to Oldham and they will quickly and economically get to the true root cause of the problem. They can minimise the amount of time you are without your vehicle, and ensure that the costs are kept to a minimum too.
