#DMV #brakeandlightinspection #roadtest For the vehicles lights, we make sure they are operating properly. We look for any cracked lenses and check the ABS and brake lights on the dash. We aim the head lights-making sure the adjustors are working. As for the brakes, we remove the wheels, inspect the brake pads, rotors, shoes and drums. We make sure we don't see any signs of leakage in the hydraulic system, this includes the master cylinder, wheel cylinders, calipers, valves, lines & connections. Finally, we do a road test in which the vehicle must be able to stop (panic) in less than 20 feet at a speed of 25mph.
#faultyvanitylight #electricalissues #properdiagnosis Our Electric Lab electrical technician did a diagnosis of the entire electrical system and found a faulty driver's side mirror light in the visor. The flip for the vanity light cover had sprung leaving light on continuously and ultimately draining the battery. Although this problem occurred on a '99 Suburban, electrical drains can happen with most any system in todays vehicles. Having trained technicians and proper diagnostic tools is important to have in an auto service center
#brakepads #brakerepair #heavydutygrade Our technician took the 2005 GMC Yukon for a test drive and verified the noise. He then put the Yukon on the lift and pulled the wheels to examine the brakes. He found that the brake pads were a medium grade brand rather than a heavy duty grade designed for a vehicle of this size. The correct pads were installed after resurfacing the rotors and the technician took the vehicle for a test drive. This time, no noise. That was two weeks ago and we have checked with the customer since and he tells us the brakes are operating without the noise he experinced before. We were pleased to have solved this customer's problem.
#checkenginelight #professionalscantool #diagnostictroublecode Not exactly. What we do have are different tools to use depending on what issue(s) you are having with your car. So for example if your "check engine light" is on this indicates the engine computer has set a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC). This usually requires diagnosis with a professional scan tool.
