Diagnostics

At DCM Tyre & Autocentres we use the latest industry standard, manufacturer approved diagnostic equipment. This means that you don’t have to go to expense of visiting a main dealership to learn why a dash board light has illuminated or find out what’s wrong.

Reading computer fault codes to aid an effective repair

A dashboard alert warning light may display alerting you to an issue, a diagnostics check using our equipment will diagnose the full extent and cause.

Modern cars can produce thousands of different fault codes and by having the correct diagnostics equipment is vital for identifying an accurate fault code diagnosis to conduct a timely repair before a further more major costly repairs.

Modern cars have a port, usually under the dash board, this connector enables us to clip our diagnostics computer and read the fault codes. The process is very fast and provides a comprehensive insight as to what is wrong, we can do it while you wait.

 

Top Tip:

Diagnostic lights that illuminate on a cars dashboard are usually coloured amber for an advice or low level warning and we recommend you pop in for us to diagnose for you. If you see a red warning light then consider these as a little more urgent/important. 

 

If you see an unusual light appear on your dashboard, pop the car into our Shaftesbury branch and we'll diagnose the fault and make our recommendations to resolve.
