Modern vehicles around Houston have several computers on board that control all kinds of things like engine functions, transmission shifts, traction control, anti-lock brakes, stability control, emissions – and on some vehicles, even steering, braking and the throttle.
Think about that for a minute – things that used to be controlled by simple mechanical connections now have electronic controls that rely on computers, software and sensors. It’s no wonder that when something goes wrong with their car it can be pretty complicated for Houston motorists to track down the source of the problem.
To help our service advisor figure out what’s wrong, your car is equipped with on-board diagnostics. The check engine light comes on to tell you there’s a problem and the engine management computer stores a trouble code. Our experts connects a scan tool to your vehicle’s diagnostic port and retrieves the trouble codes as well as other important data.
rouble codes are like clues for our technician to follow as he diagnoses what’s wrong with car. In a way, it’s like going to your doctor with a problem. She’ll run some additional tests and gather the information she needs to make a diagnosis and form a treatment plan. How much does our vehicle diagnosis costs at depends on how much time it takes to sort out the symptoms and find the underlying problem. Give us a call or click here to request an appointment
