Automotive Diagnostic Inspections

There are several dashboard lights that let you know your vehicle needs to be serviced or repaired.


At Brighton Auto Repair, we offer computerized engine diagnostic services and will perform a diagnostic scan/inspection on your vehicle. 

There is a reason "Muir Advanced Diagnostics" is part of our logo...

One of his many specialities is diagnosing vehicles for everything from drivability and automotive performance issues such as: check engine lights, rear park assist, and ABS (Anti-lock braking system), airbag sensors, crank no start, no crank no start, etc. and he has invested in all the latest technology and scan tools to service and repair every make and model.
