Glenview, Northbrook, Wilmette, and Winnetka Automobile Computer Diagnostic Services

Computer Diagnostics have become a big part of auto repair these days. We now have malfunction lights to warn us to  “Check Engine.”  We have similar warning lights for Air bag, ABS, VSC and low Tire Light. In the big picture it is better for the consumer as they will now know when something has gone a wry. A trained technician can find the problem using a diagnostic scanner, promptly in some cases. The DTC’s (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) tell us which system the error is in. Having high end equipment finds it faster which reduces your diagnostic costs. Despite popular belief, they don’t just tell us what is wrong, although in some cases it does, they are designed to locate the segment of the car that is malfunctioning. It may still take time to drill down to find the problem.

 

For more information go here Check Engine Light. Here is other information on AirBag, ABS, VSC and Tire Light.

 

Additionally, the “scanners” are needed to change the brakes in some cases and then we have to go back and tell the computer we did, like the BMW’s with CBS (Computer Based Services). 

 

Your car tells you when to do an oil change. After we have done that, in some cases we have to enter the system to reset the mileage counters on the computer. I cannot tell you the number of times we have had customers come in and ask us to reset the system because they had an oil change done at ****y ***e "but they could not turn off the light."

 

We have they ability to rest almost every make and model. So if that Check Engine Light does come on, bring it to Personalized Auto Care in Glenview for the RIGHT diagnosis.
