Dashboard warning lights are an increasingly prevalent concern for motorists, but fortunately, it’s often the case that an engine diagnostic test is all you need to get to find the root of the problem.

With some vehicle issues, an engine diagnostics check may display a potential error before it has shown a warning light, saving you time, money and hassle in the long run.

Why have an engine diagnostic check?

At AutoFix we use the Autel Maxisys, which is a professional level piece of kit, which allows us to scan various points of the car to detect potential issues with a high level of accuracy. The Autel will also code or re-programme new parts such as injectors, diesel pumps, ECU’s and much more.

This scanner can detect issues associated with your car’s engine, brakes, gearbox, emissions system, airbags, alarms/immobilisers and many other ECU controlled systems with live data, allowing our us to check whether problems from your car’s ECU are genuine or as a result of sensor error.

In addition to this, service and error lights on a dashboard can be reset using the scanner. Some warning lights can be a reason for an MOT failure, even if there is nothing wrong with the system indicated. For that reason, it is important to have these checked and reset before your test to avoid an MOT fail.

On some cars with electronic handbrakes, an engine diagnostic tool is also needed to wind back the brake calipers.
