DiagnosticsDiagnostics at Sandy Lane

At Sandy Lane diagnostic machines are plugged into your vehicles on board diagnostic port (OBD), which works with the Electronic control unit (ECU) to monitor various sensors, it then flags up codes which the technician can read to help him successfully diagnose the problem.

With the introduction of computer technology controlling everything in today’s world, this now also applies to your vehicle which is also controlled by a computer.  This is to improve performance, efficiency and reduce emissions that are damaging to our environment.  With this in mind, it has become apparent that the introduction of a tool to aid the diagnosis of such electrical problems was a much needed piece of equipment within the motor industry.

Historically, effective vehicle diagnosis relied upon the individual competence of a mechanic and his ability to use visual and audible clues to correctly asses a vehicle malfunction.  With the advent of electrical control units (ECU’s) in vehicles, the task of vehicle diagnosis has become simpler through the use of computer technology to aid them in identifying and resolving vehicle malfunctions.
