Diagnosing the dashboard indicator light

Whatever your vehicle, using one of our diagnostic computers we are able to read faults that cause dashboard warnings and diagnose the probable cause. Due to the nature of cars and their systems one of the main skills is using the knowledge of the vehicle diagnostics computer, together with modern vehicle systems to correctly diagnose the vehicle fault.

At Advanced Motorcare we take a keen interest in the use of computer based diagnostic and fault finding, investing heavily in the latest equipment to ensure we are able to deal with most vehicles on the roads today.

Using the latest manufacturer recommended solutions combined with our knowledge of vehicles and their systems we are able to read and interpret the results from vehicle computers, diagnose the problem and recommend a suitable resolution.
