Engine Computer Diagnostics | Highway Auto Rockhampton


Diagnosing computer-controlled vehicles begins with a Scan Tool which reads the stored out-of-range ECU functions: Trust HAE, the pioneer in car diagnostics.

The right equipment is essential for servicing today's modern cars. We have the latest diagnostic equipment to identify and fix car electrical issues, but most importantly, we have super-skilled technicians to manage the electronic diagnostic equipment.

Simple Scan Tools are readily available, but the skill level to correctly interpret the scanner output should be left to the experts, as many false alarms can occur, which may be expensive.
 

These Car Problems May Require Electronic Diagnostic Skills


  • Hesitates or is sluggish when you accelerate

  • Warning lights illuminated on your dashboard

  • Sometimes stalls

  • Difficult to start

  • Uses more fuel than it used to

  • Engine misfires

  • Engine overheats

  • Excessive smoke from the exhaust

  • Flat battery

 
When a problem occurs, the fault is logged on the ECU’s memory. A diagnostic code reader has to be used to read the fault or message and to clear any fault codes from the memory.

This is why having the correct diagnostics equipment is vital. It means we can fix cars quicker and therefore, pass the time and dollar saving onto our customers.
 

Check-engine & other warning lights


All modern vehicles are equipped with an on-board computer diagnostic system (OBDII) that constantly monitors your vehicle’s engine and transmission together with the entire electrical systems. The main purpose of monitoring these systems is to ensure that the vehicle is operating at top efficiency with the lowest possible emissions.

A warning light comes on because the computer has sensed a signal from one of the systems or components that has gone outside of its normal operating range. The computer then sends a signal to turn on the light on your dashboard to let you know something is wrong!

A warning light may turn on, and your car may still appear to be driving OK. However, ignoring some warning lights can lead to severe issues and expensive repairs. If a warning light comes on in your vehicle, you should safely pull up to the side of the road and call us for assistance.
