Diagnosis checking and vehicle repairs
Engine management lights can come on at any time and can be the result of a number of possible faults ranging from the most common to the more obscure associated with vehicles from the Volkswagen Audi Group.
Therefore, in order to provide the best possible service, we have invested heavily in diagnostic equipment and training to keep pace with developments in car design and thereby providing the technician with the expertise to find and correct the fault(s).
Any rectification work required will be quoted for and permission sought from our customer before any work is undertaken.
ANY WARNING LIGHT ON THE DASH REQUIRES ATTENTION. PLEASE DO NOT IGNORE
PLEASE NOTE: The following is for guidance only. Please phone for advice or check your workshop manual.
Air bag warning light
The air bag warning light indicates a fault with the Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) Warning Light. Requires diagnostics.
Anti-lock brake system (ABS)
The anti-lock braking system is a safety system that stops the wheels from locking up and therefore prevents the vehicle from skidding. If the ABS light comes on it indicates there is fault with the anti-lock braking system.
Battery warning light
The battery warning light indicates that there is a fault with your charging system and requires immediate attention as the vehicle will lose all power very quickly and your steering may go heavy.
Brake warning light
The brake warning light can be caused by low brake fluid or the brake pads wearing low. The brake fluid should be checked and topped up at once. The brake system should be checked at once. Also, ensure your handbrake is fully off as this shares the same warning light.
Do not ignore this waring light as your vehicle will require immediate attention.
Coolant warning light
The cooling warning light indicates either the coolant level is low or a fault in the cooling system. The engine may overheat.
Diesel particulate filter (DPF)
Refer to your Owners Manual to establish how to regenerate your DPF or phone us for advice. Do not ignore this warning light as your filter will quickly block and could lead to a costly repair. For extra information see our DPF Advice Sheet.
