Importance of Vehicle Diagnostics:
Vehicle Diagnostics is a very useful tool as it enables technicians to easily identify problems and repair them as quickly as possible.Most modern cars can generate many fault codes which get stored in vehicle’s memory system.
This is very important since minor faults can be identified at an earlier stage before it gets escalated to complex and expensive problems.

Many warning lights indicate that a fault has occurred inside your vehicle, but it doesn’t pinpoint the item or system that has failed.In this case the computer diagnosis can help to determine the part that needs attention.
