Well-known specialists in car services in the Bristol area.

AP Autocare are well-known specialists in car services in the Bristol area. For many years we have become well established and trusted by our customers. Our hard-working team take pride in the work they do and have a passion for the field of work they are in. With AP Autocare, our priority is our customers and ensuring that they feel their vehicle is in good hands with us. In Bristol, our car services are second to none, which is why we are trusted and relied on by so many in the area. One of our high-quality car services we offer is diagnostics. If you have a warning light on your vehicle that you are curious, unsure or worried about, then car diagnostics with AP Autocare is the right service for you.

Typically, the modern car features a relevant selection of hidden onboard computers that monitor aspects of your vehicle such as engine temperature and emissions, as well as controlling them too. When things go wrong, these hidden computers generate error codes. Usually, these will result in warning lights being displayed on your dashboard. Sometimes you will not be able to recognise what the warnings on your dashboard symbolise. In these situations, it is in your best interests to have a diagnostics service on your vehicle. The vehicle diagnostics equipment will analyse any errors being displayed and identify what they mean and how the errors can be rectified.

At AP Autocare, we have dealer level diagnostic equipment for Volkswagen, Audi, Seat, Skoda, BMW, Mini, Porsche, Citroen and Peugeot. Our equipment is capable of carrying out fault finding, reading parameter measurements, key programming, coding and configuration of new ECUs, body control modules and instrument clusters. We can also carry out manufacturer software updates on control units, reset auto adaptives and much much more. Our equipment is backed by a technical support team of ex-dealer master techs and is regularly updated. This is by far more advanced than your average fault code reader.

Getting a car diagnostics service on your car can be a lot more important than you initially think. Just because the warning light isn’t alarming you or causing any significant problems, this does not mean that it is not worth getting checked out by a vehicle diagnostics professional. Problems that may seem minor to you may become major in the future. This could potentially put you and your passengers at risk in your vehicle. Identifying and fixing the problem as early as possible can prevent future risk and save you money. A diagnostics service and minor maintenance on your vehicle is a lot cheaper than major maintenance in the future. Not having your car repaired when necessary could even potentially lead to your vehicle being unusable in the future.

To avoid risks and for a high-quality car diagnostics service in the Bristol area, look no further than AP Autocare. We offer each and every one of our customers professional workmanship and pride ourselves on delivering some of the highest quality, most efficient car services that are available.
