Diagnostics

Accessing your vehicle and figuring out the root cause of a problem is the process of a diagnostics test. Having a professional technician give your vehicle a diagnostic test is always a good idea to make sure your vehicle is working safely and efficiently. Some of the particular things iTAN dealer technicians will look for when performing a diagnostics include:

Battery
The battery is a very important part of your vehicle; it provides power to make anything electrical work on the inside of your car as well as the outside such as your radio and headlights.

Charging System
We offer a thorough charging system inspection and maintenance. We will make sure your battery is in great working condition as well as ensure that your battery terminal posts, clamps, and cables are in peak working order

Alternator
The alternator is an important part of your electrical system. The alternator charges your battery and powers the electrical system when your engine is running.

Warning Lights
Dashboard warning lights are an important safety feature for every vehicle. When a warning light comes on, it is a sign there is something wrong with your vehicle. As soon as you see a warning light appear on your dash, call the shop to book an appointment so we can run a diagnostic test and help fix the problem.

 Rough Running
Rough running is when your engine runs rough when idling. This can be caused by a number of things like a problematic oxygen sensor (O2 sensor) or a clogged fuel filter or pump. If you feel your vehicle is running rough stop by the shop for a diagnostic test.

Scan Tool
During a diagnostic test we use a scan tool, which connects to the vehicle and helps diagnose problems as well as re-program your vehicles control modules.

Misfires
Be aware that when your vehicle misfires, it’s a sign that something is wrong. Misfiring often happens hand in hand with your vehicle stalling or rough running. When this occurs, contact our shop to diagnose the problem.

Exhaust
While your vehicle is running if you notice anything different like rattling, or your exhaust sounding louder than usual you should contact the shop to have your exhaust checked by a qualified technician.

Hard Shifting
When shifting gears in your vehicle, the transition should be as smooth as possible. Hard shifting can be a major safety issue with your vehicle.

Air Bags
Working air bags save lives. During our diagnostic test we can ensure all air bags in your vehicle are in proper working order to help prevent serious injury for all passengers.

Traction Control
The traction control system protects against the loss of traction.

ABS
To prevent skidding your ABS (anti-lock braking system) must be working properly.

TPMS
TPMS stands for tire pressure monitoring system. When your air pressure is low the TPMS sensor lets you know that your air pressure needs to be pumped back up.

E Test
An emission test (E test), tests your vehicle for how much pollutants its discharging into the air and makes sure it’s less than the legal amount.
