Today, car manufacturers include at least one computer in motor vehicles. This computer's main function is to monitor and adjust engine and transmission operations. The computer receives input information from different sensors. The computer controls spark plugs, idle speed, and fuel injectors so as to get you the best possible car performance. Failure of the car computer will greatly affect the things it controls. To get the most out of your car's computer, have it evaluated regularly for updates and proper operation. If it is already failing, have it repaired or replaced. To have your car's computer handled by experts, visit Mickey's Car E.R. in Towson and Cockeysville today.
Mickey's Car E.R. has state-of-the-art equipment to provide computer reflashing to our customers in the Towson and Cockeysville areas. The primary reason to reflash a computer (which basically means updating or reinstalling its software) is that an update has been issued by the manufacturer. It's a very simple procedure, and there may be minor updates that the car hasn't had. The manufacturer may have tweaked the transmission-shifting algorithm or some other parameters that are not crucial but may bring slight improvements to drivability, mileage or emissions. Since auto manufacturers are coming out with automobile updates every day, there may be a reprogram available for your vehicle. Stop by Mickey's Car E.R. or call us at 443-652-3678 to schedule an appointment!

How long does a car diagnostic last?While a basic diagnostic test typically wraps up in 1-1.5 hours, complex issues demanding further examination and component access/testing can extend the process to 2-3 hours. The length ultimately depends on the severity of the problem and the potential presence of multiple underlying culprits.
