Diagnosing your Vehicle's Warning Light

Here at Slater's we use the latest electronic technology to identify and diagnose your Car's fault. By using this diagnostic tool it allows us to reduce your repair costs as we have an indication as to the problem before we being a repair. Each Car is different and sends a different diagnostic report therefore we generally charge for a diagnosis of your Car's fault. However should we then repair your vehicle we will generally waive the diagnosis fee. Give the transmission, ECU and DSG experts a call today to discuss your Car's fault.

After running the diagnosis we will repair the fault on your Car and re test to make sure the fault has been completely repaired before removing the warning lights from your dash. Unlike some garages this service is completely free of charge and is classed as part of the diagnostic of your Car.

With this information collected from various parts of your Car it performs millions of calculations each second. This allows the ECU to speak to the Vehicle to establish the best spark timing and determine how long the fuel injector is open, ultimately determining the fuel consumption. Clever bit of kit really! Thats why its vital when doing any work on your Car's computerised systems i.e. ECU it comes to the professionals who know how everything should read. This is where Slaters Garage stand out from most local garages. One of the biggest cores to our business is diagnostic and ECU repairs for all models of Car.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is an ECU on a car?

Typically, when you see an error light on your cars dashboard, it is usually down to the ECU. ECU Stands for Electronic Control Unit, which is a computer that controls part of a vehicles functionality. ECUs have sensors and signals from other parts of the car input, which control a series of actuators on an internal combustion engine to ensure optimal engine performance.

How often should I get my transmission checked?

We would recommend that you get your gearbox and transmission checked annually, to make sure that there are no problems, which can lead to potential risks and hazards in the future. These problems may lead to other problems or get to the point where they are beyond repair. You may need to get your vehicles checked more often, should you feel that your transmissions control units are not up to the most efficient standard.

Can I drive with a transmission leak?

No. Should you find that you have a pinky reddish puddle underneath your car, it means that you may have leaking transmission fluid. As a transmission unit is a sealed hydraulic unit, any loss will mean that it will greatly affect the performance of your transmission and so you will need to get in touch with your local car technicians to assess your vehicle.
