At Tradeston Performance, we repose great pride in our vehicle diagnostics capabilities. On-Board Vehicle Diagnostics or OBD has been in vogue for many years now, but residents of Glasgow and its suburbs faced a crunch of qualified technicians.

At our facility, our team uses the latest tools to solve any issues your car faces. We also carry out repair and replacements accordingly.

Engine diagnostic at Tradeston, Glasgow is something most people often consider only when their ‘Check Engine’ light comes to life on the dashboard’s instrument cluster. But undergoing periodic vehicle diagnostics testing is mandatory as it is a pre-emptive approach towards solving potential issues.

Vehicle diagnostics at Tradeston Performance

All modern vehicles have an ECU, or an Engine Control Unit, installed on-board. It is a computer that monitors and controls several aspects of a vehicle in real-time.

An ECU retains its control over the vehicle thanks to sensors, miniature circuits and microprocessors. Whenever it detects a fault, it registers an error code.

An error code does not define the error per se. Instead, it points towards the underlying issue. Our team of professional technicians can tap into the ECU using hand-held and mobile instruments and ‘decode’ the issue.

Using advanced technologies, we can also carry out more elaborate operations and services like:

1. Tapping into the ECU’s diagnostics sub-sets.

2. Access ancillary diagnostics like SRS, ABD, airbags and Lane Control/Cruise Control systems.

3. Monitor engine parameters constantly and in real time.

Engine diagnostic at Tradeston, Glasgow also factors in known, weather-dependent and road-dependent issues when done properly. For example, a car that normally plies in Tradeston will behave in sync with one plying in Glasgow but will behave differently than one in sunny Dundee.
