A.instone mobile mechanics can come to you and perform a complete fault diagnostics and using top of the range computer diagnostics checking all sensors and electrical systems on your vehicle.
While this won’t mean danger for yourself it normally means that one the Vehicles sensors have found a fault it would need to be sorted before the fault gets worse and causes a breakdown or mechanical failure. Some vehicles will go into limp mode that reduces the engine’s performance and limits the speed of the vehicle.
Brakes are one of the most important features on any car, so if your brake warning light is illuminated while driving, you need to take it seriously. It could mean you’ve got a brake fluid leak, or your brake pads have worn out to need replacement. Or, if your brake pedal feels lower than normal or you’re having to pump the brakes to get them to respond, your hydraulic brake circuits may have failed.Whatever the issue, if the brake icon lights up on your dash, you need to get off the road. Find a safe place to stop and assess the damage. Check your brake fluid level; if it looks OK, it may just be a sensor fault. If needs be you can buy brake fluid yourself. But, when it comes to your brakes, you should always get them checked by a professional.
The battery powers all the electrical components in your car, from the ECU to the ignition system, so when this icon lights up your dash, you’d better take notice. You could have a faulty battery, bad connection, or some dodgy cabling, but usually you’re looking at a broken alternator belt.If your battery warning light comes on and stays on, turn off anything that could be draining the battery – air con, heated seats etc. – and unplug any phones or iPods. It may still be safe to drive your car a short distance but keep an eye on your temperature gauge; if your car starts overheating it’s best to pull over as soon as possible to prevent any lasting damage to the engine.
Airbags are a major safety feature, so if yours aren’t working properly, you need to get them fixed. If your airbag warning light is illuminated, your airbags could be faulty. This could mean they may not deploy properly in the event of a crash, or they could go off unexpectedly, causing accident or injury.
If your power steering light comes on, there’s probably an issue with the steering system. If the steering starts to feel heavy or you’re having trouble turning the wheel, your power steering may have failed. While this is not such a problem if you’re driving on quiet roads, if you’re on a motorway, or in fast-moving traffic, it could seriously impact your ability to react in tight situations. Pull over as soon as it’s safe to do so, and, if you’re driving an older model that relies on hydraulics, check your power steering fluid level; you may have sprung a leak.
Normally this light means that one or more of your tyre pressures are low but sometime they can fail or need resetting to your vehicles computer, some times this can be done by reading your vehicles hand book but some will require resetting by a diagnostic computer.
