Auto Doctor has the latest Bosch and Delphi technology, which when combined with over 10 years of experience in the motor industry can be used to diagnose and fix a vast range of motor faults. Auto Doctor also uses Sun Diagnostic and VAG-COM equipment to ensure high vehicle coverage.
Auto Doctor specialises in dianostics and is often called to dignose faults for other garages.
Your Engine Management warning light will illuminate when there is a fault detected within your Engine Management System. Depending on the nature of the fault, your engine may not run efficiently and can suffer from sudden loss of power. Usually the problem requires immediate attention.
Anti-lock Braking System (ABS)
The ABS tests itself each time the ignition is turned on. If a defect is detected, the ABS turns itself off and the ABS light is illuminated.
The ABS works by applying and releasing the pressure to any wheel that decelerates too quickly in order to allow maximum stopping force to be applied without the brakes locking-up and the car skidding.
When a fault is detected with the ABS it is disabled and therefore increases the chance of your brakes locking and causing a skid.
Brake Wear Indicator
Your Brake Wear Indicator warning light is illuminated to inform you that your brake pads are wearing thin and require replacement.
Your Battery Voltage warning light will be illuminated when a fault occurs in your vehicles charging system. This can be dangerous as it can result in the loss of power steering, window wipers, lights e.t.c.
Safety Restraint System (SRS)
A warning light that says SRS should never come on unless there is a fault in your cars airbag system or safety restraint system (a.k.a supplemental restraint system).
You can drive the vehicle with the airbag light on but the airbags will not be deployed if you are involved in an accident. You should have the problem diagnosed and any defective parts replaced at your earliest convenience.
