We have a range of dealer equivalent systems to identify issues with your vehicle. A modern car can produce thousands of different fault codes. Having the correct diagnostics equipment is vital for identifying fault codes and warning messages.
Sensors in your vehicle continually report to the ECU (Engine Control Unit) on how they are performing. If a problem occurs, it logs a fault code on the ECU’s memory. A diagnostic system has to be used to read the fault or message and to clear any fault codes from the memory. Faults that create a fault code will not always activate a warning light, but may cause issues with your vehicle.
Many other garages use cheap fault code readers that allow them to erase the code temporarily. At Milton Auto Services we use the code to help fix the underlying issue before erasing the error codes to prevent the fault returning.
We provide our customers with a print out of the fault codes listed*
