A car diagnostics scan guarantees fault-free car performance which is vital to driving safety. It is always comforting to have the trust that your vehicle is always in good and reliable condition. Every car owner would agree on how frustrating it can be when your car leaves you in the middle of nowhere, with no clue of what’s wrong. Knowing the state of your car even as it runs gives you information on the life expectancy of all its functional components and hence, gives you absolute peace of mind on the road.
Our advanced OBD2 computer diagnostics equipment scans deep into every functional part of your vehicle and detects faults at their early stages. This helps prevent a total part failure or a complete mechanical breakdown which ultimately saves you thousands of cedis. The professional recommendation is to conduct a full car diagnostics scan at least 2 times a year or after every 60,000km.
What to Expect
Our comprehensive car diagnostic scan service reveals hidden faults that basic mechanics may overlook. After a thorough scan, reports on vehicle state, performance, and maintenance milestones among many others would be generated and finally, our auto engineers would give their remarks and recommendations.
Car Diagnostics Scan Coverage
Modern vehicles have a range of sensors that monitor the operation of the engine and other vital systems. Car diagnostic services monitor these systems and pinpoint any faults so these can be rectified. The sensors are connected to the car’s computer, which stores data about their performance. When you require a car diagnostics scan, the technician will use a software program to read this information and identify any faults. This can be done while you wait or at another time. The technician will then use the data to determine what repairs are needed and how much they will cost. Diagnostic scans would be conducted for the following Systems:
Engine System Diagnostics
Engine system diagnostics is the process in which a vehicle’s computer and electronic systems are analyzed to identify issues and determine the best course of action. Typically, a technician from our shop will perform this service as part of the car diagnostics scan for a customer and provide needed part replacement or repairs on the vehicle. The engine diagnostics test will look at a number of different sensors and components, including the oxygen sensor and other items. The technician will use an OBD II scanner to diagnose any issues with the vehicle’s computer system or electronic components. The oxygen sensor is located near the engine’s exhaust manifold, which is a part of the exhaust system. It will send information back to the computer about how well fuel is being burned and what kind of emissions are being produced. The computer uses this information to make adjustments in how much fuel it injects into the engine based on driving conditions. If there is an issue with the oxygen sensor, it can throw off these readings, resulting in poor performance or other problems.
Transmission System Diagnostics
Transmission System Diagnostics is a comprehensive diagnostic test that detects your vehicle’s transmission (the processer of any automatic or manual transmission). The test will accurately isolate problems with the vehicle’s transmission system, and provide useful information that can be used to make repairs and improve performance. The Transmission System Diagnostics test will scan and analyze the transmission’s electrical system, its sensors, solenoid valves, actuators and other components. The test will identify any issues with the vehicle’s transmission system (such as damage or wear), and provide useful information that can be used to make repairs and improve performance.
Steering System Diagnostics
We carry out a complete diagnostic check on your vehicle to ensure that your steering system is working correctly. The service will test the electrical system and hydraulic lines, including the alignment of pumps, valves and bearings; monitoring pressure distribution in all hydraulic circuits; pressure testing of all hydraulic systems on the vehicle and overall diagnostics/overall maintenance. If we find any issues with your steering system, they will be repaired and your vehicle will be back on the road in no time.
Brake Assist System Diagnostics
Brake Assist System Diagnostic Procedure (BASD) utilizes advanced software technology to evaluate the vehicle’s braking system, diagnosing faults and providing appropriate recommendations for remedial action. An expert technician or qualified mechanic will conduct the car diagnostics scan in a professional manner to ensure satisfactory results are achieved. The BASD procedure is performed by enabling the system and attaching an electronic interface to the vehicle’s computer. The technician will then run a series of tests on the brake assist module (BAM) and other modules that are related to it.
Chassis System Diagnostics
The chassis system diagnostics checks fault codes and provides a detailed report of all system information. Chassis System Diagnostics check all the potential problems in the suspension of your car. By using special devices and measuring inputs you can check the resistance of all components, as well as checking the condition of rubber and other materials that are used to adjust suspension parts. The car diagnostics scan verifies whether all parts are properly connected to each other. The same applies to checking the effectiveness of shock absorbers, springs and stabilizers. We use a combination of advanced integrated circuit analysis, diagnostic, and test equipment to isolate and problems.
Air Conditioning System Diagnostics
At it’s most fundamental level, an air conditioner is a refrigeration system that exists to improve indoor air. The device works as a way to direct and control the air flow from the outside to inside of your room so that it matches your needs. A professional technician will help you determine if your home needs additional cooling or if there is any damage present on the parts of the AC that require repair or replacement. This diagnostic process can be frustrating if it’s not conducted properly, but when done properly, it can save you money on cooling costs.
EPB System Diagnostics
Change your vehicle’s braking quality with our electronic parking brakes (EPB) diagnostics for certain vehicles. It enables you to diagnose and repair any issues with the brake system, as well as troubleshoot a malfunctioning electrical system. The EPB system on many vehicles allows for the vehicle to automatically engage the parking brake when the transmission is shifted into park or it detects that the vehicle is on a hill. In addition, the ability to disable or use different ignition and climate control settings in your vehicle, has made it important for brake shops to have tools that can actually perform EPB diagnostics. Our electronic parking brakes (EPB) diagnostic software is used to quickly and accurately identify the cause of stuck or inoperative vehicle parking brake systems. The car diagnostics scan uses software that will analyze the brake circuits, and determine your vehicle is experiencing a known problem or if there is an issue you have not yet identified.
Vehicle owners, mechanics and service professionals alike will appreciate the accuracy that the car diagnostics scan technology adds to critical tire maintenance. The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) is a wearable, in-vehicle system designed to provide critical and timely alerts regarding the status of the vehicle’s tires. The primary function of TPMS is to monitor changes in tire pressure to ensure optimum vehicle performance. The system’s alert applications include low tire pressure, low air pressure or flat tire detection. The TPMS provides that added reliability by alerting the driver via visual, audible or tactile warning conditions. Installed in each wheel well of their vehicles, TPMS devices are designed to measure pressure within the vehicle tires to help maintain optimum tire wear.
The Supplemental Restraint System, or SRS of your vehicle, refers to a wide range of components that are responsible for the safety of the driver and passengers. Airbags, modules, crash sensors, seat weight and position sensors, as well as warning lights and pre-tensioning devices are all part of this system. An auto engineer knows that unless these components are working properly you are putting not only yourself but your passengers at risk if there is an accident. Regularly scheduled maintenance is needed to ensure a properly functioning SRS.
The anti-lock braking system (ABS) is designed to help you maintain more control of your vehicle in an emergency stop situation. It detects if the front wheels are locked up and will immediately apply braking force to those wheels before they have the ability to lock up the wheels’ tires. If front wheel locking occurs, the ABS uses multiple sensors that monitor the speed of both front and rear brakes. You probably did not know that the Anti Lock Braking System is not one single part and it has many parts. If you smell burnt rubber or experience uneven braking when driving, your brake pads may need to be replaced by a qualified auto engineer. Without a comprehensive car diagnostics scan, you may not uncover the issue and this system may not work as expected.
In this short article we hope you can appreciate the value that a car diagnostics scan offers. As elaborated on in the points above, this essential service goes a long way to ensure your vehicle delivers optimum performance.
