We have an in depth understanding of the various E.C.U's, controllers and electrical systems through out the range of V.A.G vehicles, right up to the current model.
Do you have a light on your dash and your not sure what it means? Usually a permanently on light is to indicate a fault with one of the numerous control systems your car has.
We are able to carry out numerous diagnostic tasks, which can include and are not limited to:
- Engine E.C.U diagnostic check - often needed when your engine management / emissions light is on.
- A.B.S diagnostics - often needed when the A.B.S light is on.
- Air bag system check - often needed when the Airbag light stays on
- Central locking/comfort systems diagnostics, recoding etc.
- Air conditioning diagnostics.
- Recoding and matching of new electrical components.
The above list is just a small selection of examples to highlight our diagnostic service.

We can issue you with a relevant quote for any repairs and a print out if required detailing any found faults.
