Advanced Vehicle Diagnostics
DEALER LEVEL DIAGNOSTIC, PROGRAMMING, CODING & SOFTWARE UPDATES
As technology advances, modern vehicles are increasingly assisted by comprehensive electronic control systems, and therefore advanced vehicles require sophisticated diagnostic technology – most of them being cloud-based, requiring an online connection to the manufacturer’s database server. It’s not unusual to see an electronic part has to be electronically calibrated in order to operate correctly, or a control unit software update is required to restore or improve functionality or even a tiny control unit requires programming & coding after being replaced.
Our vehicle diagnostics are comprehensive and extensive, unlike services that other places might offer. Many garages will plug in a computer diagnostic computer and charge you for the privilege of doing this. Most of the time this can be inconclusive and will point you in the wrong direction and you may end up changing parts that are not required nor are faulty. We don’t have a set fee as other garages do, our diagnostics are based on the amount of time that it takes to do a thorough investigation and reach a solid conclusion.
With every diagnostic we perform, we do a variety of physical checks, electrical and live data checks on various components on your vehicle alongside a full computer diagnostic using the relevant diagnostic equipment for your vehicle.
Here at OGS Mechanics, we have access to full dealer level software and can perform software updates, module programming, coding and calibration for a wide range of makes and models.
A sample of the type of programming we can do:
- Dashboard Immobiliser
- Fuel/Injection Pump
- Fuel Pressure Regulator
- ECM/ECU Immobiliser
- ECM/ECU Build Coding
- SRS/Airbag/Restraint Module Programming (Pre-tensioners, airbags, ECUs, etc)
- New & Existing Key/Remote programming and coding
- Central Convenience Modules
- Comfort Control Modules
- ABS Modules
- Air Suspension Calibration
- Fuse Box Module
- SBC Pump Programming
- EGR Adaptation
- Initial Startup Modules
- Engine ECU/ECM Full Updates and Flash Programming
- Automatic Transmission Updates, Re-calibration and programming of Adaptation
- Air-con Modules
- MAP Sensor Adaptation
- Diesel Injector Programming
+ many other various programming and calibrations.
We are able to program modules, immobilisers, keys, and many other components on your vehicle.
We are also able to perform various tests to ensure components are working within the manufacturing threshold, perform reactuations, reprogram, debug, and various other functions on gearboxes, engines, and other components around your vehicle.
An example of some of the dealer-level equipment we use:
- VAG – Odis;
- Jaguar and Land Rover – Pathfinder and SDD;
- BMW – Ista-P;
- Mercedes – Star;
- Nissan – Consult 3 Plus;
- Nissan and Renault – Clip;
- Porsche – Piwis;
- Peugeot and Citroen – Diagbox;
- Autologic, just to number the most important.
Our equipment is able to perform dealer-level functions on:
- Mercedes (inc Smart)
- BMW (inc Mini)
- VAG (Audi, VW, Skoda, Seat)
- Land Rover (inc Range Rover)
and many more brands.
We assist retail and trade customers with any vehicle electrical or electronic requests and have been authorised by the above manufacturers to use their online software platforms. This way we make our advanced programming & coding, and software updates services more affordable and easier accessible to you.
