BMW Diagnostic Testing

BMW Diagnostics Lincoln


If you are concerned that your BMW may have a fault or if a warning light is on, then Dack Motor Group can help. Diagnosing problems can be a difficult and often frustrating task, one that requires high-tech equipment, methodical thinking, experience and time.

We have specialist BMW diagnostic technicians who have a wealth of experience with all BMW models, making us the leading choice for diagnostics in Lincoln and Coventry. We have dealer level BMW diagnostic equipment and trained technicians to identify any issues you may have.


What does a diagnostic check do?

A BMW diagnostic check is carried out on your vehicle by one of our specialists, who will plug your vehicle into a specialised code reader. It can detect problems with your vehicle which can be challenging to spot manually.

The main components which are tested in a diagnostic check are the following:

  • electronic control units (ECUs) - these control various element of the car and its performance including engine running
    emissions and exhaust sensors
  • braking system
  • electrical components such as central door locking
  • transmission if electronically controlled
  • ignition coils
  • throttle setting
  • fuel injectors
  • air flow and coolant

However, sometimes 'plugging it in' to the computer isn't enough. We therefore have a full toolkit of equipment that can help - such as smoke machines, oscilloscopes, multimeters, pressure gauges and more. 

Here at Dack Motor Group we have the latest 'icom' BMW Diagnostic Interface and a live subscription to the BMW Network so that we have access to the latest software and technical information (such as ISTA) to make sure we always have the ability to resolve any issues with your BMW. Once the check is complete, we will then advise you as to either what the issue is, or what is required to identify the issue.
