The modern car relies on a number of electrical systems
Modern cars have a number of independent electrical systems. These include things such as your vehicles lights, central locking, windows, heaters, sunroofs, stereos, alarms, engine management, sensors - the list is almost endless and one look at the modern fuse box confirms how many separate electrical circuits are contained within your car.
Fault finding electrical faults can be time consuming and this is where having the latest technology and the experience and technical know how really pays off. Here at K Services we are able to offer you all of these and that's is why we are confident in our ability to diagnose the route cause of your electrical fault and then rectify it to get your car working like new once again.
The modern car stores information on it's ECU
Modern fuel injected cars all have an ECU (Electronic Control Unit) that is like the brain of the vehicle controlling all the parameters to keep it running smoothly. When a fault occurs it is registered on the ECU like a memory and vehicle diagnostic technicians are able to plug in to your cars brain and read the stored memories which can alert us to any ongoing or previous faults with your car.
K Services use the very latest electronic testing equipment to safely tap in to your cars ECU and understand exactly what is going on. When we read fault codes we are able to understand exactly what the issue is from a faulty sensor to anything more serious that could pose a safety danger to you.
It is usually a good idea as part of any service to diagnose any previous faults that have been registered on the vehicle as these could alert us early to any problem that may occur in the future.
MODERN CARS ARE RUN BY COMPUTERS
The first you may be aware of a fault is when the engine management warning light comes on in your dashboard. This means a fault has been registered and stored. If after turning off your cars engine and re-starting the light remains on then you need to immediately take it for diagnostics.
Some cars may enter what is known as a "limp home mode" - this could restrict the rev range to protect your engine from damage and will mean you have limited power so caution must be taken when driving under these conditions.
Thank you for taking the time to consider my profile, I look forward to hearing from you.

Full service and replacement of front brake pads
Keith arrived in a timely manner the work was carried out as agreed Keith was courteous, professional and a very competent technician. Would highly recommend his services and will be using him in the future.
Work needed for MOT requirements
I had considerable work carried out on my 27 year old Mondeo Estate. This included suspension members because of corrosion and/ or bushes that had deformed and caused tracking problems on the rear tyres. Also, welding was carried out in several locations. I was delighted when I had the car back, to find that water ingress, which had been troublesome for a considerable time - and had not been dealt with by another establishment, had been eliminated, i.E. The car has been progressively drying out ever since. I have included this detail so as to be specific in praise! B,Wood.
Service Vauxhall Astra and Brakes and Coolant on Triumph
He is excellent I can not rate him too highly. Managed to fix even though some parts are not available. Very jovial Will certainly recommend
I got keith out to fix our suspension after we had hit a pothole, A very responsive service and thorough job he carried out. Will be using his services again.
Stay away from this dodgy mechanic!
K services came to look at my mini which kept cutting out. The chap and his assistant were very friendly but I got the impression they were not 100% sure of the problem. He diagnosed it as a faulty throttle body and quoted me to replace it. I then heard nothing from him for a few weeks despite asking to proceed with the work. I took my car to another garage who found that the throttle body was fine and it needed a sensor and a leak fixed, they fixed this within a day for half the price. Therefore I paid £72 for a misdiagnosis, Stay away!
