Diagnostics at C & M Auto Services

Diagnostic Technology for your car

Over the last 15 years technology deployed by vehicle manufacturers has grown at an alarming rate and this rate of development has accelerated even more over the last ten years, due to almost all new vehicles sold in this period having at least six independent  electronic control units (ecu) to control various functions of the vehicle with the higher specification models having anywhere up to 35 or more different CPUs to control a whole raft of vehicle functions. With this now being customary, it is now impossible for an automotive workshop to service, maintain or repair a vehicle without the appropriate diagnostic equipment. Our garage uses the latest technology to deliver fast diagnostic results to assist in the fastest possible repair to your car.


Ford Integrated Diagnostic System (IDS):

The Ford Integrated Diagnostic System (IDS) will be the only equipment that provides complete diagnostic coverage of current and future Fords. The IDS package replaces the Worldwide Diagnostic System (WDS). The IDS application will perform the identical functions of the WDS and allows dealership technicians to diagnose and service Ford vehicles. As the new diagnostic tool, IDS will be required to perform diagnostics on future model year vehicles.

IDS is enhanced WDS software that was modified to run on a standard laptop platform, and utilizes the VCM and VMM. Moving IDS to a laptop helps technicians by integrating access to both diagnostics and service information on a single, powerful machine.


Star Mercedes Diagnosis Multiplexer:

Because of European and US competition rules, all vehicle manufacturers must now make diagnosis tools available to any workshop.

The multiplexer is the interface between the PC and the car's diagnostic port. The current multiplexer connects to the PC with a cable and is made by I+ME Actia and is called the Part D3 multiplexer. It then connects to old and new Mercedes models using different cables.

We have the latest in Mercedes Benz Star Diagnostics which enable us to quickly and efficiently diagnose any fault on your Mercedes Benz, We also have full access to Mercedes Benz work instructions and technical information we are also register to the Mercedes Benz Technical help line for added back up and support.
