Diagnostics Done Right!
Computers in control
Modern Yakima vehicles have several computers on board that control all kinds of things like engine functions, transmission shifts, traction control, anti-lock brakes, stability control, emissions – and on some vehicles, even steering, braking and the throttle.
Think about that for a minute – things that used to be controlled by simple mechanical connections now have electronic controls that rely on computers, software and sensors. It’s no wonder that when something goes wrong with their truck it can be pretty complicated for Yakima motorists to track down the source of the problem.
How diagnostics works
To help your AutoMetrics technician figure out what’s wrong, your car or truck is equipped with on-board diagnostics. The Check Engine Light comes on to tell you there’s a problem and the engine management computer stores a trouble code. Your thoughtful AutoMetrics service professional connects a scan tool to your vehicle’s diagnostic port and retrieves the trouble codes as well as other important data.
A doctor for your vehicle
Trouble codes are like clues for the Yakima technician to follow as he diagnoses what’s wrong with your car or truck. In a way, it’s like going to your Yakima doctor with a problem. She’ll run some additional tests and gather the information she needs to make a diagnosis and form a treatment plan.
