COMPUTER DIAGNOSTICS

Most modern European cars contain multiple computer modules which are heavily relied on for the efficient management of your cars systems. Each module performs its own key functions in controlling your vehicle.

 

The ECM (Engine Control Module) gathers incoming data from various parts of your car's engine system.

If your car has a problem, your ECU'S  (Electronic Control Unit) for that system may bring on a dash warning light regarding your engine, transmission, air bag or anti-locking brakes just to name a few. 

 

At Auto Diagnostics, our advanced diagnostic tools and experience in the diagnostics field can quickly identify problems from small to large, making your service and repairs speedy, efficient and cost effective.

PICO LABSCOPE
TESTING

Pico Scope is a cost effective alternative to traditional test equipment and data acquisition products. Pico technology is an ISO9001 Quality company that can provide a highly reliable and effective diagnostic automotive labscope testing. Scanners provide me with information on where to start a diagnostics process but Pico Scope ultimately needs to be used to find major electrical faults such as Can-bus and Flexray. With Pico pressure transducer systems I can check all pressure systems which are converted to a labscope reading such as compression testing and check on engine valve timing synchronisation.
