The key to effective & economic repair on modern vehicles is diagnostic capability. At Carwood we have continuously invested in the latest “dealer level” diagnostic technology. Block exemption legislation means that vehicle manufacturers make their technical data and vehicle interface protocols available to the independent aftermarket, this enables Carwood to have the interrogation and rectification capabilities to ensure your vehicle receives the very best attention.
We offer a “drive in – plug in” diagnostic service where our factory trained technicians will connect the computer to your vehicle to read any fault codes while you wait. This can help with a rapid estimate of repair times and costs.
Of course, computer diagnostics are not always the right technique, often misleading fault codes can result in unnecessary and expensive intervention. That is when the fundamental expertise and experience of Carwood technicians can bring real benefits, using first principle diagnostics and standalone instrumentation such as oscilloscopes, ammeters, voltmeters, pressure gauges and resistance measurements to diagnose the root cause of the problem.
Carwood are approved diagnostic and service agents for many of the world’s leading automotive systems manufacturers. Specialising in auto electrical, diesel and HVAC systems, we are often able to determine the fundamental cause of the problem without just replacing parts and hoping for the best. This results in a permanent and cost-effective solution. We can often conduct the initial diagnosis while you wait or, for business customers, on site at their premises. Please contact our service department if you have a problem with your vehicle – we are here to help.
