Engine Diagnostics

What’s that light on my dash? Why is my car not running properly?

R and T Autocentre have the latest Delphi diagnostic equipment to plug into your vehicle’s electronic control system and identify issues.  You don’t have to go to a dealership to find faults, we can take care of that for you. The majority of modern vehicles can produce a huge variety of fault codes that get stored within the vehicle’s memory system.

Some vehicles have several units, not only to control the engine management but also brakes, suspension and even windscreen wipers. Having the correct diagnostic equipment and technical training on fault diagnosis is vital for identifying the correct cause of issues and preventing further costly component failures.


What makes the engine light come on?

Your engine management system is an on-board computer that monitors performance and stores the information.  If one of the systems or components goes outside of it’s normal operating range, this will send a signal to the on-board computer which in turn will turn on the warning light to let you know that something is wrong.

Engine Light

What does it mean?

The reasons for a warning light to come on are varied, your on-board computer monitors many different elements of your car.  Whilst your car may seem to be running as normal, ignoring a warning light can lead to serious issues such as engine damage or component failure.  We always advise to pop your car in for a check when any warning lights come on that you don’t understand.  This could save you money in the long run.
