SLP Autos is an accredited Bosch Service Centre with trained technicians using the latest Bosch diagnostic equipment to diagnose and repair our customer’s vehicles. With extensive experience in dealing with a wide range of makes and models our skilled technicians are of course able to find and repair faults that are both identified by diagnostics and their visual inspection.
What do diagnostics deal with?
The modern car comes with complex electronic equipment such as traction control, immobilisers, power steering, airbags, electric windows and air conditioning; often fitted as standard and managed by the cars brain – or ECU (Engine Control Unit). When these systems are performing as they are designed to, driving is a pleasure, but when a fault or warning occurs; it is always advisable to have your car examined by an experienced professional with the right equipment to identify the fault and make the necessary adjustments or repairs as soon as possible.
Warning Lights And Faults
If there is a service light or warning sign illuminated on your dashboard, or you are experiencing problems with your vehicle, it does not mean that you need to go to a main dealer for servicing or repairs. At SLP Autos our extensive Bosch diagnostic equipment allows us to access the ECU of most makes and models of cars and light commercial vehicles to ascertain what the problem is.
Fault Finding & Repairs
With the use of a code reader our technicians will check your vehicles ECU’s memory log for fault codes, (some of which may not have activated a warning light) and identify any faults or warning messages.
We do advise clients that codes extracted by diagnostic tools are just a guide, and it is not simply a case of plugging in the code reader and clearing the codes. The codes form the basis of resolving faults and are used by our skilled technicians to help identify and remedy any faults with your vehicle.
Once we have ascertained what the problem is with your vehicle we will advise you. If there is any need for replacement parts or labour, we will of course provide a quotation for your approval before proceeding any further.
Having completed the necessary repairs or adjustments, our technician will then clear the fault from the memory of the ECU.
