Badminstons Garage Group - Diagnostic Test

Fault code reading and diagnostic testing in The New Forest

If you’ve got a warning light on your dashboard and you don’t know what’s wrong, book a diagnostic test. Our garages are in Fawley, Cadnam and Hythe, providing car repairs and servicing to high standards for customers in the area. We will perform a quality car diagnostic test on your car to find the cause of any problems.

Your car diagnostic test can tell you a lot about any problems you might be having with your car. For example, it can identify ignition timing issues, fuel injector, performance, whether the ignition coils are firing, engine RPM levels, air and coolant temperature, crankshaft and camshaft position, air bags and the throttle opening. There can be hundreds of meanings behind warning lights. Getting them repaired quickly can be important in keeping your car running for longer. An engine diagnostic helps find the cause of the problem. We’ll run through the repairs needed and go ahead and get your car fixed. As a result of your diagnostic test and repairs, you’ll avoid expensive repairs further down the line.

The latest diagnostic tools

At the Badminstons Group our garages in Cadnam, Fawley and Hythe are fully equipped to allow us to perform in-depth car diagnostics and fault code readings. After the car diagnostic is performed, the computer will log each data point. As a result, we’ll be able to pinpoint what exactly needs to be repaired. It then stores this code so that the technician can look in a specific area for the problem.

There are hundreds of potential error codes that can only be read with specialist car diagnostic tool. We’ll run through our findings for you before we conduct any repairs. In addition to explaining the issue, we’ll also cover how much it will cost. This is so you know what to expect when you come to collect your car. In other words, you can have peace of mind that you’re getting the right repairs for your car.

While a warning light may display on the dashboard alerting you to a problem, a diagnostic test is required to understand the full extent and cause of the problem. The potential causes for a warning light can range from improperly tightening your gas cap to engine, transmission or braking system performance issues.

Prevent major repairs with a simple diagnostic test

While dashboard lights can go on and the car still appears to be driving “fine”, ignoring some lights can lead to serious issues, such as engine damage or other component failures. In some instances, this can be a safety hazard. At Badminstons, we recommend getting issues looked at as soon as possible so that you can prevent expensive repairs later on. A simple diagnostic test can easily identify small issues. Our team can repair them for you, giving you peace of mind and keeping you on the road. In addition to providing car repairs, we also can talk you through the process so you know exactly what’s going on. In particular, we’ll explain the costs so you can know what to expect when you pick your car up.

Our workshops in Cadnam, Fawley and Hythe have the tools, training, and technology to handle any diagnostic issues for everything from a check engine light to an ABS warning light.
