No one likes to see their vehicle’s check engine light blink to life. Whatever you do, don’t just ignore the issue when one of our certified mechanics can perform a car computer diagnosis and return your peace of mind. Our mechanics will inspect your vehicle through our car computer diagnostic process, making sure every system is checked and rechecked until the problem is found—saving you time and money down the road. If you have a lit-up indicator or other issues, visit the Satnam Auto experts to solve the problem.
As vehicles have become more and more sophisticated in their use of electronics, it takes a dedicated technician to keep up to date with the latest equipment and tools to properly service a vehicle’s electrical system. Our workshop is equipped with the latest in diagnostic scan tools to help us isolate any problem areas in your vehicle’s electrical system. We can then use this information to conduct repairs faster and more thoroughly, ensuring you drive away with complete confidence.
We also repair or replace faulty starter motors and alternators, as well as install a range of replacement batteries, solar panels and other power sources. We also install a range of other accessories. If something is wrong with your engine, your “check engine light” may tell you. Your car’s computer is telling you something is wrong with your car’s systems. When you see this the best thing is to bring in your car to Satnam Mechanical so we can have a look at what is going on. If we find a problem we will review what needs to be done before we do anything else. We will go over how much, and how long it may take to fix your vehicle so you know exactly what to expect. So next time your check engine light goes off, don’t ignore it. Bring in your car for an inspection at Satnam Auto.
Our On Board Computer Diagnostic (OBD) Service and Module Repairs Include:
From general auto repairs to mechanical repair services and engine repairs, our auto repair shop has all of your repair needs fully covered. Our experienced and skilled technicians can assist you with all of your auto repair and auto service needs.
Almost every car includes a power train control module (PCM)—essentially your car’s computer—which is typically found under the driver-side instrument panel. This module monitors the operation of dozens of car components. Each component has a normal operating range, and if the car component operates out of that normal range, the PCM registers the issue and stores it as a diagnostic code. This type of code is what triggers the light on your car’s dashboard.
The most common indicator the PCM will trigger is the check engine light. Whenever you see that light turn on, it’s a good idea to come in and let one of our trained technicians perform our thorough car computer diagnostic test.
A diagnostic code can indicate an electrical issue, a mechanical problem like an engine vacuum leak, or something else entirely. Codes can even be triggered when there’s nothing wrong with the electronics. When your mechanic runs a car computer diagnostics test, he or she is scanning the PCM for these active or stored diagnostic codes. While these computer diagnostic codes identify the source of the problem, they will not indicate whether a part needs replacing.
When you schedule an appointment at one of Satnam Auto service centers, you’ll get a comprehensive car computer diagnosis by a diagnostic expert. Our test includes a visual inspection of related components, a complete system analysis, thorough research of all related service bulletins, test drives, pinpoint testing and, finally, the component diagnosis.
Once the car computer diagnostic scan is performed and codes are identified, the technician may have to perform additional checks, such as mechanical or electrical analysis to determine why the light was set off in the first place. Extensive training and experience are necessary to fully understand what these additional tests should be.
After the technician knows why the light is on, he or she will recommend the appropriate service and provide an estimate for the work. We use top-of-the-line equipment and have access to the best automotive reference materials to guarantee your car is fixed right the first time.
