Modern Diagnositcs

Diagnosing vehicle problems

Diagnostics on vehicles nowadays are mostly pursued through hooking up a computer and reading what the vehicle says. Our state of the art equipment allows us to read codes and have a thorough look that's more comprehensive than regular OBDII scanners. Sensors all around the vehicle tell the ECU if there are problems. This can be low fluid levels, broken connections, blown bulbs or increased engine temperature. The ECU generates an error code when an issue is identified. Error codes can only be read by specialist diagnostic equipment. A warning light on the dashboard will alert you to an issue but a diagnostics check is required to understand the full extent and cause of a problem.

G-MAC Tyres & Auto Centre use state of the art equipment for vehicle diagnostics which read the OBDII fault codes in your ECU’s memory. Our technicians can then suggest any necessary repairs to get you back on the road and remedy the error. Don’t pay dealership prices for your diagnostics check. Visit G-MAC in Larne for a low-cost diagnosis while you wait.

Getting to the root of the problem

How Does It Work?

Say for example your Check Engine light came on. An engine is made up of hundreds of parts meaning the exact problem may not always be obvious. Our diagnostic equipment reads the error codes generated by the ECU to provide a full explanation of the fault. The car diagnostic test checks for faults across a wide range of systems including tyres, engine management, emissions, comfort controls and lights.

The diagnostic equipment can also be used to reset service lights, adjust electronic handbrake systems and adjust headlamp levels to name a few. For more information or to book your vehicle in for a diagnostics check, contact G-MAC Tyres & Auto Centre today.
