Advanced Vehicle Diagnostics For Modern Vehicles

Diagnosing modern vehicles can be a challenge for even the most seasoned technicians. Today’s vehicles are loaded with computers, sensors, CAN networks, fiber optics, and more. Notice that we haven’t even mentioned ADAS (advanced driver assistance systems) and autonomous vehicles yet.

As vehicles have become more advanced, “mechanics” have had to evolve into “technicians” and they’ve been forced to learn entirely new skill sets that were never before required in the world of fixing cars.

At Wyman Automotive, we’ve not only accepted that challenge, we’ve embraced it!

Diagnostic Equipment

In order to diagnose modern cars you have to have the latest diagnostic equipment. It’s not enough to have a DVOM and a generic scan tool anymore. Honestly, it hasn’t been that simple in nearly 20 years. Today, it’s become commonplace to work with digital oscilloscopes and to have multiple factory scan tools. Yes, we have those things. But we’ve also invested in the latest J2534 pass-thru programming equipment to be sure you never have to go to the dealership because we don’t have the needed tools.

Education and Training

All of the fancy diagnostic equipment is worth nothing in the hands of someone who doesn’t know how to use it. We invest heavily in training and continuing education. Our technicians spend an average of 40 hours every year receiving training on the latest in vehicle technologies and how to properly diagnose these advanced systems.

Some of the certifications our technicians hold include:

  • ASE Master Certification
  • ASE L1 Certification
  • MACS (Mobile Air Conditioning Society) Section 609 Certification
