Have you got a warning light on your dashboard? Give Graham Martin Automotive BMW Specialists a call for professional diagnosis at a down to earth price.
Drivers of modern BMW and MINI vehicles with the fob type key will be familiar with the sound of the electronic steering lock releasing every time they insert the fob into the key slot.
For a variety of reasons this system can fail briefly causing a warning light (below) to be displayed and in some cases a total failure of the mechanism will prevent the engine being started.
We’re very familiar with this fault and can correctly diagnose the cause and guide you to the most cost effective BMW repair.
In the event of a fault with the engine a complex network of sensors will detect when readings go outside the tolerances expected and this will be highlighted on your instrument panel with a yellow light (shown below) The data gathered by the sensors is recorded in the vehicle and using the very latest diagnostic computers we can analyse this information to help pin point the reason for the warning. Unfortunately it’s not simply a case of the computer finding the fault though, by carrying out mechanical and electrical tests of the engine components we will accurately identify the cause to achieve the most cost efficient BMW repair.
