Then let Pentagon Motorist Centre carry out an electrical diagnostics code read at our workshop in Chatham, Medway
Diagnostic readings are extremely important when it comes to diagnosing warning light faults or running problems, but read on for the most important diagnosis that needs to be carried out first.
The most important basic check that needs to be carried out first before a code reader or scanner is plugged in, is water and oil levels. This check should generally be carried out by the vehicle driver and may save you money in the long run.
Low oil or coolant levels will allow an engine to run hotter than normal. This factor alone can cause a sensor to malfunction.
