Rotherham Chesterfield vehicle diagnostics

It’s more important than ever to ensure your vehicle has had a comprehensive vehicle diagnostics test. ADAS (Advanced driver-assistance systems) are now very common in latest-generation vehicles, and functions such as autonomous emergency braking, pedestrian, and traffic sign recognition, assisted speed control and lane keep assist all need to be checked for faults to ensure your safety.

But when do you need to book in for a vehicle diagnostics test? As experts in vehicle diagnostics in Chesterfield and Rotherham, CRS can help.

You Have a Warning Light on Your Dashboard

Firstly, a warning light or error code on your dashboard is a clear sign that you need a diagnostics check. For example, a light flashing on the dashboard will show any faults with the PCM (Powertrain Control Module). It’s possible that there may be a range of different problems, but the good news is, all are usually fixable while they are still small.

It’s Been a Year Since you Last had yours Checked

Just like an annual check-up from your GP, a regular diagnostic test is also beneficial for your car. It can help to detect any problems early so that you can fix them before they become worse. No one wants expensive repairs, or worse, a breakdown.

You’re Buying a Used Car

If you are looking to buy a used car, we would recommend that you have a diagnostic test carried out before you commit to buying it. Whether they are a private seller or a dealership, they should agree to have a diagnostic test performed. If they don’t, then it may indicate a big red flag!
