Diagnosing your Vehicle's Warning Light

Here at Slater's we use the latest electronic technology to identify and diagnose your Car's fault. By using this diagnostic tool it allows us to reduce your repair costs as we have an indication as to the problem before we being a repair. Each Car is different and sends a different diagnostic report therefore we generally charge for a diagnosis of your Car's fault. However should we then repair your vehicle we will generally waive the diagnosis fee. Give the transmission, ECU and DSG experts a call today to discuss your Car's fault.

After running the diagnosis we will repair the fault on your Car and re test to make sure the fault has been completely repaired before removing the warning lights from your dash. Unlike some garages this service is completely free of charge and is classed as part of the diagnostic of your Car.

With this information collected from various parts of your Car it performs millions of calculations each second. This allows the ECU to speak to the Vehicle to establish the best spark timing and determine how long the fuel injector is open, ultimately determining the fuel consumption. Clever bit of kit really! Thats why its vital when doing any work on your Car's computerised systems i.e. ECU it comes to the professionals who know how everything should read. This is where Slaters Garage stand out from most local garages. One of the biggest cores to our business is diagnostic and ECU repairs for all models of Car.
