Dashboard warning light on? Don't panic, follow these initial steps
All cars are now fitted with computers and a myriad of technology to run and monitor the internal workings of the vehicle. One of the most important functions these computers provide is ensuring your car is operating within the manufacturers parameters; the engine, safety systems (ABS, Anti-Slip etc. etc.) are all operating correctly and safely.
Most people usually only become aware of the functions of these computers when one of the fault warming indicators illuminates on the dashboard (there is usually at least an Engine warning light, an ABS warning light and an Oil Pressure warning light) and consult the vehicle owners manual to read "proceed to an authorized dealer as soon as possible".... "This could indicate a serious problem".
Often the warning light will indicate a fault that could be corrected by simply turning the ignition off, waiting a moment and re-starting the car. However, there would always be a reason the light illuminated.
Whatever vehicle, using one of our diagnostic computers we are able to connect to your car, read the "fault" that caused the light to illuminate and begin to diagnose the probable cause. However, due to the nature of cars and their systems, one of the main skills is using the knowledge of the vehicle diagnostics computer, together with modern vehicle systems to correctly diagnose the vehicle fault.
