Car Servicing Names

Alternative names for vehicle services are MINOR SERVICE which is the basic building block for all vehicles services. Then there is MAJOR SERVICE as the name suggests a comprehensive and very necessary service. New car owners would be familiar with the dealer reference to LOGBOOK SERVICE where the manufacturer has set out a best case servicing program for a new vehicle.

Current generation vehicles will do everything they can to prevent a dangerous situation from developing while you’re driving. In addition, built-in car safety features will intervene whenever it looks like something terrible is about to happen. These technologies are essential to safe driving, but when they go wrong, you are left exposed to all sorts of risks on the road. It is even possible that your brakes will malfunction completely.

Why is the maintenance of car safety features critical?

Most up-to-date vehicles contain many advanced car safety features. You may have seen them referred to with acronyms such as ABS, TCS and ESP®. Although those terms seem a little confusing, they are essential technologies that try to help you recover from skids or prevent skidding in the first place.

The whole process of intervening in dangerous situations on the road is, of course, computer-controlled. Sensors at the road wheel and within the power train work provide a processing unit with data about the current situation. Upon this, a program will immediately determine the best course of action before sending commands to brakes, engine and other components.

So, as you can imagine, diagnosing and fixing problems with your vehicle’s safety systems requires advanced equipment that can interrogate the sensors and processing units involved. Fortunately, Highway Auto Mechanics has been at the forefront of utilising these workshop tools, so HAM Car Service facilities are exceptionally well equipped and trained for this work.

Descriptive terms for car safety features

People sometimes confuse the terminology for different technologies designed to give you a safer ride.

ABS: The advanced braking system is a technology that helps stop skidding when you brake. If a sensor detects that a particular wheel is skidding because too much braking pressure has been applied for the surface conditions, the ABS will release the hydraulic pressure on the brake system in rapid bursts. This will stop the skid and restore your ability to steer the vehicle.

TCS: The traction control system deals with the loss of traction due to acceleration rather than braking. For example, the wheels will spin if you pull away too quickly on a slippery road. The TCS will respond by reducing the power sent to the slipping wheels.

ESP®: The electronic stability program is an advanced technology that uses ABS, TCS and engine management to ensure a safe and comfortable ride. It detects steering movements that are too extreme for the surface conditions, intervening with corrective action before a skid can occur.

When is a safety system diagnosis required?

The first you may know about a fault with car safety features is when a warning light appears among the controls in your vehicle. Depending on the car, it may well be that a light comes on whenever your ESP® system intervenes to correct a dangerous situation. But in those cases, it will only stay on briefly. On the other hand, if the light stays on for a long time, or if some further abnormal indication associated with the car safety features can be seen, you should contact Highway Auto Mechanics Car Services.

Some problems with car safety devices – problems that call for an ABS pump repair or ABS module repair, for example – may manifest in a more obvious way, such as a brake pedal that no longer works or works only with difficulty.

It may also be the case that a potential problem with car safety features needs to be investigated during a more general transmission repair.

Systems such as ESP® and TCS work very closely with the transmission (also known as the drive train or power train) to deliver the right power level to the wheels for any given situation.

Having taken careful note of the reported symptoms, HAM workshop staff will use advanced methods and equipment to determine what type of problem exists (if any) and advise you of the steps required to fix it.
