Vehicle Diagnostics and Check Engine Light

Is your Check Engine Light illuminated? A diagnosis of a car’s Check Engine Light can be very complicated and difficult. Put your faith in us to be your car doctor. Here is why, as with the rest of the world, computers and car electronics have changed the landscape of automotive technology immensely. Most cars built after the model year 2000 have at least 20 computers that share data on at least 3 in-car networks. The number of technicians in the field that can diagnose complex issues is small. Automotive franchises, big chain repair shops, and most independent shops lack the qualified personnel and capabilities to properly inspect and diagnose a modern vehicle. They are only equipped to perform routine services. On the other hand, our staff has Master ASE certified members, who are routinely sent to various industry automotive training seminars to stay ahead of automotive technology.
