Warning lights can appear on your dashboard and this usually indicates a fault with your vehicle.  A thorough engine diagnostics check can help to identify and localise the problem before serious damage occurs.

Modern day vehicles contain an on-board computer which continually monitors your vehicle’s performance.  Various sensors on your vehicle will report the status of components and when an issue is identified or something is out of usual limits, the computer will generate an error code.  This is usually displayed to the driver by a warning light illumination on your dashboard.

Platinum Technicians will utilise state-of-the-art technology in order to identify the issue in the most efficient manner possible.  This diagnosis then allows us to rectify your vehicle’s issue prior to any serious damage.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What does the diagnostic equipment check for?

    Our diagnostic equipment will read the error codes generated by your vehicle’s computer in order to provide a detailed explanation of the error.

    This means that the fault can be found and rectified as soon as possible.

  • What happens if no faults are found after diagnosis?

    If no faults are found during diagnosis, this does not mean the process has been unsuccessful.  This diagnostics check eliminates multiple systems such as sensors or electrical faults and usually a further investigation into mechanical components is required.

  • What happens if my light comes back after it has been fixed?

    Occasionally a problem may exist across multiple systems.  If the initial problem has been rectified and the system reset, a problem may still exist in other capacities in associated systems.  In this case, a warning light may be illuminated to inform the driver of an error, this may or may not be related to the original problem and should be investigated as such.
