Check Engine Light Code Diagnosis

If your check engine light clicks on, it’s important not to waste time in seeking out a mechanic in Petersburg, VA. Using OBD codes from your car’s computer, we read the error codes responsible for triggering this light. This allows us to see exactly what’s going on with your vehicle that needs fixing, from the engine to the exhaust system, electrical troubles to mechanical failures and beyond.

Electrical System Analysis and Repair

Problems with your auto electrical system don’t take long to make themselves known. If your headlights are dimming, your radio has stopped working or you’re having trouble starting your car, electrical problems are likely to blame.

Young’s Foreign Car Repair takes the time to troubleshoot electrical problems to narrow them down and get them fixed. We check for grounds and shorts, examine wiring, check fuses and more, while also paying close attention to the bigger players of this system, such as the battery and alternator.

Airbag/Antilock Brake Light Code Diagnosis

Airbag (SRS) Light: Ignoring dashboard lights is not as uncommon as you think. You should never procrastinate if your air bag or “SRS” light comes on. An illuminated air bag warning light can mean a number of things, but the most important thing to know is that your air bag won’t deploy. Bring your vehicle to Young’s Foreign Car Repair to have the problem diagnosed, which consists of an auto technician accessing the car’s computer system.

Antilock Brake System (ABS) Light: If your ABS light turns on, especially if it corresponds with a noticeable reduction in brake performance, shaking, or brake squeaking, then you should stop driving immediately and book a mechanic to diagnose the issue. There is likely an issue with the entire brake system.
