Diagnostic Services

Vehicle Diagnostics across all manufacturers

The Seaham Garage specialise in vehicle diagnostics, we can identify a multitude of faults across all makes and models of vehicle. Our trained mechanics can diagnose running faults and mechanical problems using diagnostic instruments designed to communicate with your vehicles on-board computer.

Modern cars use a host of computerised controls and sensors to perform electrical and electromechanical functions and each vehicle has its connection protocol. For this reason we use a broad range of diagnostic systems enabling us to diagnose electronic and mechanical faults across all makes and models of car and van.

We attach these systems to the vehicles diagnostic ports allowing us to access the trouble codes, helping us quickly identify any problems with engine components or other systems such as the ABS, Air Bags or Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems.

Most modern vehicles have warning lights which offer motorist insight into the nature of the problem, which in the majority of cases is straightforward to identify what is potentially causing the issue.

When the problem is mechanical, say an issue with any component not linked to the engine’s onboard computer we use diagnostic systems in conjunction with “traditional” troubleshooting methods to diagnose the problem.

Commonly diagnostic faults include:
ABS (anti-lock braking system)
TPMS (tyre pressure monitoring system)
SRS (supplemental restraint system)
