Northampton Engine Diagnostics & Technical Car Fault Finding
Based in Northampton, Alderley Autos specialise is technical fault finding & engine diagnostics, we have the help of state-of-the-art diagnostic systems, but sometimes that doesn't always work. Our mechanics have to look deeper and investigate, called technical fault finding.
A modern car has a complex and sensitive vehicle diagnostic system, a "driving computer". So complex sometimes if your car isn't running right, the error doesn't always show by using a diagnostic system.
Technical Diagnostics & Fault Finding
Having an error deleted from the cars fault memory isn't going to solve the problem, You turn up to a typical car repair garage and you ask them to do a diagnostic on your car because you have a problem, for example your airbag light is on.
The mechanic plugs his diagnostic system in and deletes the faults from the cars fault memory, 20 minutes and £80 later you get your car back thinking its all sorted, until the next day, that airbag light comes on again.
At Alderley Autos we are honest and reliable, we investigate and fault find the problem, potentially saving you money down the road.
