Diagnostics and Repair
Bimmer Performance Center is committed to meeting all of your BMW service and repair needs. We are fully trained in the highly-specialized technology of new BMW models and utilize the same factory software and diagnostic equipment as other licensed BMW dealerships.
Our mechanics use diagnostic tests to determine the source of a problem. We employ these tests when examining the engine, brakes, exhaust, transmission, and more. It helps us figure out where to begin narrowing the problem and what solutions we should try.
When completing these tests, we use genuine BMW diagnostic tools. These tools help us identify all problems with the vehicle. These factory tools not only give us a fault code, they will generate a test plan to follow to determine the root cause of the fault. After these test plans are performed information that lets us know the frequency it has occurred, the conditions it was set under and if it is currently not present or not.
Drivers can find these alerts very frustrating, as they don’t know which are valid alerts and which they can ignore. For example, the lamp malfunction error message may appear, although the driver knows they have resolved the issue. They then question whether the lamp is malfunctioning again or if the message can be ignored.
The mechanic determines which messages need to be acted on and which are no longer valid. This provides the owner with peace of mind, as they know any messages that appear after all codes have been cleared are current and the vehicle needs attention.
Upgrades to the Vehicle
In addition, the driver may receive an alert when they choose to upgrade the vehicle. When a new electronic part is added to a BMW, the vehicle needs coding. Without this coding, the system will display constant errors and the module won’t function properly. Our technicians can complete this coding, so the error message disappears and the module works as it should.
