As the number of computers in automobiles continues to grow, the importance of accurate computer diagnostics should not be underrated. Fifth Gear Automotive offers experienced, ASE certified technicians who can provide the essential computer diagnostics in our auto repair shops in Lewisville, TX.

Computers currently operate air bags, air conditioning, keyless entry and alarm systems, anti-lock braking systems, analog and digital gauges, automatic transmissions, cruise control, emission, and engine controls, ride control, advanced climate control systems, traction, and more.

Furthermore, the computers often rely on sensors, and the sheer number of computers, sensors, and wires in a modern automobile form a complex network. When you consider as many as 2,000 signals from various components are moving through the network at any given moment, you can begin to realize the magnitude of just how complicated the system may be. The ability of the average person to determine the source of an issue is simply beyond their ability. Problems within the complex system require diagnostic equipment, and an experienced technician to identify, and repair the problems that may occur.

The current cost of computers in new vehicles is estimated to be over $6,000. You can rely on the skills and experience of a Fifth Gear automotive technician to efficiently and accurately diagnose, and repair your vehicle in our auto repair shops in Lewisville, TX.

Automotive shops that lack the proper diagnostic tools resort to parts swapping when they are unable to identify the malfunctioning component. With electrical components being nonreturnable, you end up paying for parts not needed. Fifth Gear Automotive technicians have the latest technology in computerized diagnostic equipment, and our experienced ASE Certified Technicians are trained, and skilled in resolving your vehicle problems. Our computer diagnostics can save you money with a correct diagnosis of your vehicle problems the first time in our auto repair shops in Lewisville, TX.

What a Dash Warning Light Means

A vehicle’s on-board computers continuously monitor and store information about the performance of the interrelated systems. A warning light comes on when the computer has sensed a signal from one of the systems or components that is outside of its normal operating range. The computer activates a signal to light up a dashboard light, letting you know a problem has occurred.

While some problems are a minor issue, others can affect the safety of the vehicle, or result in costly repairs if ignored. Fifth Gear Automotive has the tools, training and the technology to handle diagnostic issues and to perform a complete diagnostic procedure in our auto repair shops in Lewisville, TX. When a dashboard warning light is activated, have the problem taken care of by our expert automotive technicians.

Time for Winter Preparations

Winter is just around the corner, and when your check engine light is on, prompt repair is even more important. Winter preparations help to prevent breakdowns in inclement weather. Ensuring properly inflated tires, safe brakes, and the correct amount of antifreeze protects your engine and coolant system, while improving your safety on slippery roads. No component should be ignored, for example, extreme cold is harder on the battery, and the proper oil is also essential for colder temperatures.
