"Old Fashioned Service for Today's Automobile"

Diagnostics

Clair Downey Service utilizes a combination of the right equipment and information, coupled with trained technicians having many years combined experience.

The complexity of today’s automobiles has grown exponentially in the last twenty years.

These highly advanced vehicles require skilled technicians along with ongoing training to accurately diagnose their many systems.

We use a wide range of modern diagnostic equipment, from digital lab scopes and graphing multi-meters to component testers and multiple scanners that communicate with your vehicles numerous computers.

We also incorporate all the needed technical information from each manufacturer and professional internet database systems to help come to the right diagnoses.

We commonly diagnose the following systems and are always up for a challenge.

  • Air Bag systems (SRS)
  • Air conditioning and heating systems
  • Antilock brake systems (ABS)
  • Charging systems
  • Cruise control systems
  • Electrical wiring problems
  • Electronic body control systems
  • Electronic engine control systems
  • Electronic steering and suspension systems
  • Engine and transmission drivability issues
  • Evaporative emission control systems (EVAP)
  • Instrument cluster, gauges and warning indicators
  • Noises and rattles
  • Starting systems
  • Tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS)

Computer Re-Flashing

We are also equipped to perform Electronic Control Unit (ECU) Reprogramming to install important manufacturer software updates.

These are common when addressing drivability issues that the manufacturer has to modify the software to overcome a widespread problem.

Just like your home computer and cell phone, vehicles require software updates as well.

Most independent repair shops will send you to the dealership when a software update is the diagnosis; we perform this service in house at our facility.
