We only use the finest diagnostic tools.

Vehicle computer diagnostics is the process of using specialized equipment and software to identify and troubleshoot problems with a vehicle’s electronic systems. These systems include the engine control unit (ECU), transmission control unit (TCU), and various sensors and actuators throughout the vehicle.

When your vehicle’s check engine light shows up, it can be alarming. With a variety of components in your engine, many different things can cause the check engine light to go off. However, it is difficult to determine what exactly is going on with your vehicle simply by looking at a light.

Mechanics often use computer programs to diagnose problems in vehicles not easily identified with the naked eye. Computer diagnoses are usually the most efficient and least expensive way to diagnose a vehicle’s problem, especially in today’s microprocessor-controlled cars and trucks. Here at Arbor Autoworks , we have the latest technology and are able to diagnose problems quickly. Once we diagnose your vehicle’s problem, we will provide you with a fair repair quote.

Once we have diagnosed the problem, we’ll give you a fair estimate (both monetarily and temporally) for repairs. Come by our shop today!

Diagnostic equipment is typically connected to the vehicle’s diagnostic port, which is usually located under the dashboard on the driver’s side. The diagnostic equipment can then communicate with the vehicle’s on-board computer systems and retrieve stored diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs). These codes can help a mechanic determine what is wrong with the vehicle and how to fix it.

In addition to retrieving codes, diagnostic equipment can also be used to perform various tests on the vehicle’s systems, such as reading and clearing fault codes, checking sensor and actuator operation, and running performance tests.

Diagnostic equipment can be as simple as a code reader or as complex as a diagnostic scan tool that can perform a wide range of tests and functions. Many modern vehicles also have their own diagnostic systems built in, which can be accessed through the dashboard display or by using a smartphone app.

Overall, vehicle computer diagnostics is an important tool for mechanics and technicians to diagnose and repair problems with a vehicle’s electronic systems, ensuring that the vehicle is running safely and efficiently.
