At Watson’s garage, we pride ourselves on leading in the motoring industry when it comes to our services. That’s why we have invested in industry leading diagnostic testing and engine management technology that helps us to provide accurate testing and repairs in very short timeframes.

Fault light warning diagnosis

If you have a fault light coming up on your dashboard that is saying you have a problem with your engine, airbags, brakes or battery, then you need to see your local garage as soon as possible. At Watson’s garage, we have the latest Bosch KTS system, which plugs into your vehicle’s engine control unit (ECU). The ECU is the computer inside your car which is connected to your engine bay and detects when any problems might be occurring. With this technology, we can identify and diagnose any problems going on within this unit so we can find the solution as soon as possible.

What is a fault code?

These codes come from your modern vehicles computer which is linked up to cables, fluid and components within your engine. They are very specific to each make and model of car and require expert technicians combined with the latest software in order to identify exactly where the fault lies. Whilst it is quite complex, it also enables us at Watson’s garage to quickly and accurately identify the problems so we can get to work as soon as possible. These days, advanced systems also give us information about brakes, emissions, suspensions and lights too so if there are any other issues going on, we can find them as soon as possible before they become serious. Diagnostic testing can be paramount in preventing major repairs later down the line.
