Has the ECU warning light illuminated on your dashboard? We carry out engine diagnostics Ivybridge and have invested in the latest diagnostic equipment, which allows us to pinpoint faults much faster.
On modern engines, there are sensors throughout your vehicle that allow the engine (amongst other things) to work as it should. If one of these sensors develops a fault, then usually a warning light will appear on your dashboard to make you aware something has gone wrong. When this happens, your cars brain (ECU) memorises a code that is linked to the particular sensor that has reported to the ECU that it’s faulty. We have the diagnostic equipment that allows us to read the fault code stored in the ECU, so we can then inspect the part that has been reported as faulty.
In some instances it’s as quick-a-fix as cleaning the connectors (or renewing the connector), as over time dirt and moisture can build up on the connector. This then sends a false trigger to the ECU, which then illuminates the warning light on your dashboard.
