Diagnostic Scanning

Modern car dashboards can light up like a christmas tree. So, what do all those symbols and fault codes mean? How do you know which car warning lights are a safety issue and which ones can wait? And how do you get rid of fault codes on your dashboard when they appear?

At Epsom Automotive, every time we carry out a FULL service on your car we’ll perform a complimentary diagnostic scan.

We use the very latest car scanning technology, equivalent to that used by any automotive dealership, which can help diagnose faults in any vehicle that has a computer in it - from the very latest models to older 90’s classics (including European cars).

The scanner looks at your car’s electrical operating system from the inside out and produces a comprehensive report of all faults found. Believe it or not, your car stores a myriad of fault codes, not all of which have a car dashboard warning light, making it a useful tool to help diagnose problems.

Following the full service and scan, we’ll call you if anything requires attention, give you a quote to remedy it and an explanation of how serious it is. You can then make an informed decision - to fix it now or leave it for next time. We can even clear your dash of pretty lights and restore your peace of mind! Now that’s what we call a service!

The diagnostic scan for your car is free with a FULL car service, however a small charge applies to clear the fault codes. Without the service it will cost from $82+GST depending on your vehicle make/model.

At Epsom Automotive we provide car diagnostic scanning, mechanical repairs, car servicing, pre-purchase inspections and automotive advice to customers in Epsom, Newmarket, Greenlane, Onehunga and surrounding areas. We are proud to be your local AA approved repairers and look forward to being of service to you soon.
