Computer diagnostics is a term that is thrown around quite a bit in the auto repair industry. But what does it actually mean? Modern-day auto repair has come a long way since the days of having to describe a noise to your mechanic and then waiting while he inspected the entire vehicle in the hopes of finding the answer. These days, we have the advantage of technology on our side and mechanics are able to accurately diagnose car trouble faster than ever before. But only if they have the right expertise and testing equipment.
At Getz Automotive, we don’t just stock our state of the art repair facility with the latest technology and tools. We also only hire the best experts in the business to be members of our teams so you know your vehicle has been properly diagnosed before we ever start the repairs.
Check Engine Light
As much as you may want to ignore it, one of the best things about today’s vehicles is the check engine light. Your vehicle’s on-board computer is a powerful piece of technology that not only connects and controls all of your major systems and components but it also regularly scans them looking for potential problems.
When your check engine light is on, it is your vehicle’s way of telling you that something is compromised and you need to get your vehicle to the mechanic for testing.
When you think of computer diagnostics, you may think that your technician is simply hooking your vehicle up to a machine and getting all the answers, but it isn’t that easy. While computer diagnostics may return a code or series of codes to assist your mechanic, it is only a road map to the problem.
Once your technician receives the results, they must then use that code to let them know which system or component to thoroughly inspect for the source of the problem. A task like this takes a true expert like the ones you will find here at Getz Automotive.
At Getz Automotive, we strive to make the auto repair process as easy as possible for you which means total transparency so you always know what is going on. As a part of our computer diagnostics service, we will send you digital inspection photos right to your phone. That’s right, you can have all the information right there in the palm of your hand. We always encourage two-way text messaging because we understand that you may not always be in a position to speak with us on the phone.
If your vehicle is acting funny or if your check engine light is on, contact Getz Automotive today for accurate diagnostics and repair.
