Auto Diagnostic Services

That light is flashing for a reason!

Find out what’s happening in your car’s brain.

Most modern vehicles are equipped with an On-Board Diagnostics (OBD) port. This enables an auto electrician to plug-in diagnostic equipment to access the vehicle’s computer and identify any faults. If your car was built after 1996, fault-finding and diagnosis will be much easier with the help of an auto diagnostic tool.

Technology in modern motor vehicles is increasingly complex, with many electrical systems working together to control key vehicle functions. Auto diagnostic scanners work by detecting faults in your car’s electrical systems.

Auto diagnostic services from Voltaic can identify most issues with your vehicle’s systems, including:

Need to diagnose an issue?

An auto diagnostic tool is great but...

Although auto diagnostic and repair tools help us identify faults with your vehicle, a skilled auto electrician is needed to get to the root of the problem. Unless the electrical fault is visible, your auto electrician will need to use further auto diagnostic services to find exactly what is causing the problem.

With the sheer complexity of electrical systems in modern cars, Voltaic auto electricians are trained to perform additional fault-finding to pinpoint the issue. A thorough analysis by a Voltaic technician will diagnose the problem with your vehicle and, most importantly, repair it!

Frequently asked questions.

A light on my dashboard is flashing, what should I do?

If you get a fault light come up on your dash you should call and book a diagnostic appointment ASAP and minimise driving your car around this will prevent further DAMAGE to your vehicle. At Voltaic we have the latest in diagnostic equipment and can interpret your cars diagnostics codes through the vehicles on board diagnostics (OBD) port/Connector.

Does my car have an OBD port?

More than likely yes, most vehicles manufactured after 1996 should have OBD2 connector.

Electronic fuel injection requires a computer module, and most manufactures after 1980 have a generic diagnostic protocols OBD1, CAN etc.  Any vehicles manufacture prior to 1980 may not have any control modules and therefore no diagnostic connector.

How much is your auto diagnostic price?

Our price for a diagnostic scan starts at $175.00. However, depending on the type of vehicle you have and the fault you are experiencing, the auto diagnostic price may vary. More complex issues could require additional fault-finding, which will take more time.

How long does an auto diagnostic scan take?

A scan of the vehicle only takes a few minutes, but the computer scan and fault code only point us in the right direction. Confirmation of the fault is needed, as many different types of failures can bring up the same single fault code.
