On Board Diagnostics for Royal Palm Beach Motorists

Posted July 18, 2021 9:44 AM

Some Royal Palm Beach vehicle owners wonder why Brake World and other Royal Palm Beach auto repair shops charge a fee for vehicle diagnostics.

Receiving a diagnostic charge at Brake World for a tricky automotive problem shouldn't be a surprise. In the Royal Palm Beach area, automotive diagnostics can cover quite a range. If you hear a noise in your vehicle brakes when you slow down in rush-hour traffic on a busy FL road, you pull off at the next off-ramp and take a quick visual check. That is usually enough to know what needs to be done. If you're having an intermittent problem with your vehicle engine, however, a Brake World diagnosis may be much more involved.

Much of the Royal Palm Beach driver's confusion comes when the problem involves the Check Engine light. The Check Engine light comes on when the engine management computer has sensed a problem.

There's a common misconception among FL drivers that the trouble code tells the Brake World technician exactly what's wrong. They wonder why there is a diagnostic charge because the scanner quickly gave the diagnosis.

In reality, it is not that easy and straightforward. The computer monitors many sensors throughout the vehicle. When one of these sensors has a reading that's out of parameters, the computer will record a trouble code and turn on the Check Engine light.

The vehicle computer's trouble code just tells the Brake World technician what engine parameter is out of range, not what's causing it. The technician needs to determine the underlying problem that's causing the malfunction.

There are many problems that could cause a troublesome sensor reading for Brake World customers. The service advisor makes a list of the most likely causes and begins tracking down the source of the problem. This takes time.

Royal Palm Beach service centers subscribe to databases that document possible causes for all the possible trouble codes. The databases outline procedures for confirming a diagnosis and provide the documented repair. These  databases are specific to each vehicle and engine combination.

Some diagnoses are quick and easy. Others are more involved, time-consuming and difficult. Of course Brake World wants to figure out what's wrong with your vehicle and get you back on the road as quickly as possible.

    Amazing service! I've been a loyal customer for over 22 years. Wouldn't trust any of my vehicles with anyone else. Moty takes care and pride in his work and business. You won't find decent and reasonable pricing anywhere else.

    Just left and I had to stop and make sure I gave them a review. I had a nail in my tire and had to rush here cuz I wouldn't have made it to work. They are efficient and work quickly. There were other people waiting on services and I was in and out in 30min. Amazing professional staff and management. Thank you!! I will definitely be using this company again.

    I went in to get a price to put my shocks in rear of my 2012 Kia Sorento and oil change. Very nice staff great price and was told my rear brakes are low so I had them done without a hefty bill like the dealer. I think I found my new mechanic somebody I can trust. My SUV rides like a dream now. Thanks guys I highly recommend Brake World for your maintenance needs !!!!
