Seat Diagnostic Specialists

SEAT Diagnostics in Lincoln


Concerned that there is a fault with your SEAT vehicle? Has a warning or engine light has appeared on the dashboard or is flashing? Or maybe your car just isn't running quite right, or making a strange sound? Diagnosing the problem can be a difficult and often frustrating task, one that requires a SEAT specialist like Dack Motor Group.

We have the latest SEAT vehicle diagnostic equipment, information and continually trained technicians. This ensures that we can carry out an accurate diagnostic test on your vehicle. 


What is a Diagnostic Check?

A diagnostic test is a service which is performed in order to discover any issues with your car, or what is causing these issues. There are a diverse range of problems which can be discovered during diagnostic testing and it is a vital aspect to get correct before vehicle repairs. 

During your Seat diagnostic check, one of our professional qualified mechanics will plug your vehicle into a specialised code reader. This diagnostic system will analyse the health of key components and can detect problems with your vehicle which can be challenging to spot manually. This will allow us to correctly diagnose and fix your vehicle, so it is safe for you to drive away once repaired. Once the diagnostic tesing is complete, we will then advise you as to either what the issue is, or what is required to identify the issue.

Dealer Diagnostic Equipment

We use the SEAT Diagnostic platform known as 'ODIS' as well as a computer called 'Autologic'. The ODIS is the same system the SEAT dealer uses, it gives us a lot of data from the vehicle and access to technical information. The Autologic tool was developed for independents and offers speed and some additional functions even the main dealers don't have.

Why may my SEAT need a Diagnostic Test?

As a service, a car diagnostic is essential for finding faults quickly and ensuring your safety. A diagnostic test will be able to find problems which may be unable to be detected manually, which means it could identify a problem that is developing before it turns into a serious issue.

Having a diagnostic test carried out can save you a huge amount of money in the long term as the longer a problem goes without attention, the worse it will get.

We will always be absolutely thorough when diagnosing vehicles, standing by our motto 'test, not guess!' 


How do I know if I need a diagnostic check?

There are several signs which can indicate that your vehicle needs a diagnostic check. If you suspect that there is an issue with your car but don’t know what it could be, it would be a good idea to book a diagnostic check to find out what the problem is.


Some of the key signs on your Seat vehicle could be:

  • Engine warning light - if the engine warning light appears on your dashboard, it’s important to book in for a diagnostic check as soon as possible as there are a wide variety of problems which the light may be flagging up.

  • Strange noises – any strange noises coming from your car need to be checked out before they turn into more serious problems.

  • Smoke - if you see smoke or steam coming from under the bonnet, your vehicle may be overheating.

  • Vibrating - if you notice any vibrating or pulling under your brake, the issue may be due to weak brake discs or pads. However, it could also indicate a problem with your suspension or steering.
