DIAGNOSTICS

AIRBAG SYSTEM / SRS (SAFETY RESTRAINT SYSTEM)

We can supply and fit airbags, pretensioners & ECU’s

Repair Airbag ECU’s (Crash data), program and configure new airbag ECU’s

Reset airbag systems (warning light) on most models including German, European, Korean and Japanese

Trace faults and Rectify on Airbag Systems

Disable airbags on modified (special needs/mobility) vehicles

We can supply and fit passenger seat occupancy sensors and emulators

Supply and fit airbag cut-off switches

PASSENGER AIRBAG DISABLED

We can supply and fit an airbag cut-off switch to disable the passenger’s airbag

Disabling the passenger’s airbag with the cut-off switch allows for the passenger’s airbag to turned on and off

as required.

We fit these switches for many different reasons for example transporting infants in the front passenger’s seat in

two seater vehicles as well as for child minders with MPVs and for transporting pets in the front seat.

Disabling airbags is also possible when a vehicle is modified for special needs / mobility vehicles

PEDESTRIAN IMPACT DETECTION SYSTEM

Pedestrian Impact Detection Systems are fitted on most mordern vehicles

These systems deploy the bonnet in an upward motion to protect the pedestrian from injury by the

windscreen

The ECU that controls this deployment will need to be reset or replaced and configured after a deployment

The system has a number of components that may need to be replaced, these include bonnet hinge

sensors and bonnet airbags

ENGINE MANAGEMENT

The engine mangement warning light indicates a fault with either the emmisions or a mechanical or electrical

failure of the engine components

We can read fault codes, program the engine ECU, program new injectors and diesel pumps, reflash the engine

ECU to the latest calibration files and carry out basic settings on other components including EGRs, throttle

bodies and many more

Often an engine warning light will come on if a vehicle has not been regularly serviced

DIESEL ENGINE MANAGEMENT

The glow plug warning indicator can remain on when there is a fault on a diesel engine

These faults can range from faulty glow plugs, injectors, diesel pump, low fuel rail pressure just to

mention a few

The glow plug warning lamp can also illuminate when there is a problem registered with the DPF (Diesel

Particulate Filter)

This warning light should illuminate and then extinguish when the engine is started if operating

correctly

We are able to diagnose faults, program diesel pumps, injectors EGRs, engine ECUs and more

IMMOBILISIER SYSTEM / KEYS

All modern vehicles have immobiliser systems which are integrated into various components of the vehicle

These systems are particular to each manufacturer and model

We are able to program immobiliser systems and keys on most vehicles including the latest models

Often changing a component it is necessary to configure the keys and the immobiliser in order for the

vehicle to run again

With certain manufacturers a security code is required and available from the manufacturer (Peugeot,

Citroen & Vauxhall)

Other systems require us to connect to the manufacturer’s server in order to carry out immobiliser / key

programming

ABS SYSTEMS

The Anti-lock brake system (ABS) has a sensor that measures the wheel speed on each road wheel.  When the

engine is started the ABS system carries out a self test and if no faults are registered the warning lamp will

extinguish

We are able to diagnose faults and program the ABS pump

TRACTION CONTROL & STEERING ANGLE SENSOR

Working as part of the ABS pump the traction control system independently brakes a road wheel which is turning

faster than the calculated speed of the other wheels with exception to the front wheels when turning

In order for this calculation to be carried out correctly on the front wheels an angle sensor that measures the rate of

turn known as the steering angle sensor is required.  This steering angle sensor needs to be calibrated to a zero

point with both front wheels in the straight ahead position.  The steering angle sensor calibration is necessary when

the steering column, steering rack or other suspension components have been removed or replaced.

In some vehicles this warning lamp will illuminate if there is a failure of  the brake pressure sensor which is integral

to the ABS pump

We are able to diagnose faults, program and calibrate ECUs on these systems

TYRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM (TPMS)

Some tyre pressure systems work using a pressure sensitive valve, others work on a calculated pressure relevant to

tyre rotation rate i.e. a flat tyre rotates at a different rate to an inflated tyre. This rotation calculation is done by the

ABS module

If replacing a valve , the numbers on the new valve needs to be programmed into the tyre pressure system using the

relevant diagnostic tool

It is important to make a note of the numbers on the new valves before the tyres are fitted

We can diagnose ,reset and configure these tyre pressure systems

PARKING DISTANCE CONTROL

Parking sensor systems have come a long way since they were first introduced

These days Parking sensors are used to enable the Auto Park function as well as identify obstacles

We are able to diagnose , faulty sensors as well as replace and install them

XENNON / HEADLAMPS

Xenon Headlamps are high voltage lighting systems, these headlamps have a control module that uses inputs

from the ride height sensors to level these powerful lights to a pre-set level

A Xenon headlamp warning light and/or malfunction will soon be an MOT failure

We can reset, calibrate, program and diagnose these systems

DIESEL PARTICULAR FILTER

Modern Diesel vehicles are fitted with  Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF) . This system is a filter that traps harmful soot

particles from the engine emissions. The system  carries out a regeneration (a burn cycle) using a special oil within

the system every 600 miles provided the vehicle is driven at at constant speed and constant rpm

The problem with DPF’s is that if the vehicle is driven small distances or in start stop conditions the filter fills up and

never gets the opportunity to regenerate .These systems are costly to replace and the special oil that it requires is

rather expensive too. To keep your DPF working properly a regular motorway run for at least 20 minutes at a good

constant speed is what is required. A DPF can also get blocked if a sensor fails to operate correctly thus prohibiting

the conditions necessary for a regeneration to occur

We can carry out a forced regeneration and diagnose faulty systems

A forced regeneration on a full DPF can cause a fire . We will not force a regeneration if the DPF is full

ELECTRONIC PARKING BRAKE (HANDBRAKE)

Modern vehicles use an ECU to control the parking brake. These systems electronically control the rear

callipers to actuate the parking brake . When changing  rear brake pads it is important to electronically open

the brake calliper to replace the brake pads then close the system again

We can program parking brake modules and use our equipment to open an close these callipers

ELECTRONIC POWER CONTROL

An EPC warning can relate to any electrical system malfunction , often related to brake lights or other electrical

failure

We can diagnose these faults and address the issue

AUTO STOP START

As the green movement grows in popularity and the EU directives relating to vehicle

emissions get stricter the stop start function has evolved. These systems will

automatically turn the engine off if the vehicle is left idling for a predetermined amount of

time

In order for this system to function certain parameters need to be met e.g  ambient

temperature and engine / coolant temperature etc.

We can diagnose and configure these systems

NEW BATTERY PROGRAMMING

Vehicles today have a system that manages the charge rate of the alternator. This allows the battery to be charged

more as it begins to age to give it a longer life and to maximise the charge to sustain the draw from all the

electronic consumers

When a new battery is fitted the system needs to programmed to allow a charge rate that is suitable for the new

battery . Failure to carry out this function can result in over charging the new battery

We can carry out battery programming

RIDE HEIGHT / SUSPENSION LEVELLING

Certain vehicles these days have active suspension systems, these systems use ride height sensors on the

suspension to measure the height of the vehicle ,normally measured from the centre of the wheel hub

The suspension system uses an hydraulic or pneumatic pump to pressurise the system for raising and it de-

pressurises to lower the vehicle

These systems are usually controlled by an ECU

We can diagnose, calibrate and programme these systems

TRANSMISSION CONTROL MODULE

Automatic and Tiptronic gearboxes are managed by ECU ‘s often gearbox failures are due to electronic

malfunctions or ECU failure

We are able to diagnose , calibrate and program transmission control modules

ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL

Adaptive cruise control is becoming more common place these days, this system is run through the

cruise control system . The system is activated when the cruise control is activated and allows for the

driver to sit back and allow the vehicle to apply the brakes automatically. This can really be a white

knuckle ride the first time you try it! You want to press the brake but have to let the vehicle do it on its own

If the system has been replaced or removed the system will need to be calibrated

We are able to program and calibrate these systems

COLLISION AVOIDANCE SYSTEM

Collision avoidance system uses sensors to identify obstacles and hazards in the road as well as warning if

cornering speed is to high

We can diagnose and program these systems

SIDE OBJECT DETECTION

This system is designed to warn the driver of vehicles or obstacles in the blind spot, also known as BLIS

Blind Spot Information System

We can diagnose and program these systems

SERVICE REMINDER

We can reset the service reminder on most vehicles including Long Life intervals

Often a service reminder cannot be reset as it has gone so far passed the recommended service mileage  we have

equipment that can reset these service reminders

LANE WARNING CONTROL

Some vehicles are fitted with lane warning control systems to warn the driver that the vehicle is drifting out of

the lane

We can diagnose and configure these systems

AUTO PARK ASSIST

At last a system that will parallel park the car for you. Controlled through the parking sensor system with

sensors on the side of the vehicle to assist with the parallel parking

We can diagnose and calibrate these systems

ELECTRONIC POWER STEERING

Most vehicles today have electronic power steering systems, these can shut down in the event of an accident

or can be damaged as a result of the initial impact

These systems need to be configured and usually will not work until the configuration is carried out

We can diagnose , fault find and configure these modules

Most car faults today start with engine warning lights. Seeing a large warning light can be

worrying, but to find out what’s wrong quickly visit Enham Service Station.

When you get that warning its time to find out exactly what’s wrong, it costs less than you

think and takes minutes to identify the fault.

 

Whatever the fault we are your local approved centre that can investigate the problem using

the latest Diagnostic Equipment.

 

The modern vehicle is reliant on a number of electrical management systems.

 

Management fault lights display for a number of reasons. Sometimes it can be just a simple

fault that can be cleared; however, more serious faults can develop, including vehicle safety

system. Here a list below of some common advanced issues we can address.
