Book in for a car, van or truck Diagnostics Fault Code Report at DIAG-X. If a warning light or fault code has appeared on your vehicle dashboard, DIAG-X can help identify and trouble-shoot potential issues using our on-board diagnostics equipment, otherwise known as an OBD2 scanner.
Diagnostic check services are available where our trained staff are on hand to scan the fault codes being displayed on the OBD reader and provide help and advice to resolve any issues found.
When a car warning light illuminates on your dashboard or an error message or code appears, vehicle diagnostics check, or fault code check can help identify the problem before more serious damage occurs.
Most modern vehicles today contain a network of on-board computers known as Electronic Control Units (ECUs) which continually monitor the performance of the vehicle and can self-diagnose faults. 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, the relevant dashboard warning lights will then be displayed. These codes can be meaningless without the proper diagnostic code reader, so we use an OBD scanner to read the codes and find out more specific information about the nature of the problem.
There are literally hundreds of potential OBD2 error codes that can only be read by specialist on-board diagnostic fault code readers. While a warning light may display on the dashboard alerting you to an issue, a diagnostics fault code check is required to start to understand the issue and determine if a more in-depth diagnostic session with a specialist technician is required.
If your check engine light is on it’s important that a technician inspects your vehicle as soon as possible before further, more serious damage is caused to your car engine, especially if your check engine light is flashing as this usually indicates a serious problem or emergency.
As the most complex part of any vehicle, an engine fault could be caused by any number of factors. It could be something quite trivial like a loose fuel cap, but it could be something much more serious like a faulty catalytic converter.
In order to diagnose a check engine light fault, an OBD2 scanner must be used to find out where the issue lies. At DIAG-X we can read your check engine light fault codes using our Bosch OBD II diagnostic equipment to provide a full explanation of the issue.
Our fully trained technicians can then suggest any necessary repairs that may be required to get you back on the road and rectify the error so there’s no need to pay vehicle dealership prices to diagnose your check engine light issue. If the problem can be fixed this will reset the check engine light.
Our diagnostics scanners check for faults across a wide range of vehicle systems including engine management, tyres, emissions, lights and comfort controls.
Live data displays multiple values from around the engine to ensure all components are working as expected when rectifying an issue.
The OBD II diagnostic equipment can also be used to reset service lights, test and adjust braking systems where an electronic handbrake is present, and adjust headlamp levels.
