We have invested in the latest leading manufacturers’ advanced diagnostic equipment, including the advanced technology used by Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Volkswagen Group’s technicians.

Our manufacturer-trained technicians can detect and diagnose any fault with your vehicle, from warning lights and electrical issues to complex engine and gearbox problems.

A car diagnostic test helps identify any issues with your vehicle, even if it's not showing any warning lights or symptoms, which can often help avoid any potentially expensive repairs in the future.

Typically, diagnostic tests check your vehicle’s engine management, transmission, ignition coils, throttle, exhaust and brakes.

Depending upon the age of your vehicle, ECUs can also provide information about lights, tyres and comfort controls.

A series of sensors all around the vehicle report problems to the ECU, such as increased engine temperature or low fluid levels, which in turn illuminates warning lights or error messages on the dashboard.

The advanced diagnostics technology GA has not only reads the codes and interprets the faults, but it can also provide information on any remedial work required to fix a problem that has been detected.
