Electrical Diagnostics & Repairs
Today, most cars are controlled by computers. The fuel injectors, the spark plugs, the steering system and more are all told when to fire and when to move by an onboard computer system.
If something's going wrong with your car or engine, your onboard computer can tell you about it. If the computer senses something is wrong with one of your car's systems, it will turn on a dashboard light, like "ABS Brakes" or something less specific, like "Check Engine."
Is your engine light on?
Some people try to disregard their Check Engine light. And some have even gone as far as disabling it and that could be a costly move.
The best thing to do when your check engine light appears is to bring your vehicle into Dart Automotive.
With our experience in Engine management programming and Chip Tuning we have inner knowledge of how most modern day ECUs function. That means we have the ability to read live data from ECUs instead of just guessing as most of our competitors do.
We invest in the latest Bosch, Snap-on and other computer diagnostic equipment to quickly identify faults.
