become much more dificult. Our aim is to carry out work to full customer satisfaction, all our
work is guaranteed and we use the latest under bonnet technology.
:: What is Mileage Correction / Mileage Recalibration ::
Modern cars have electronic dashboards with digital odometer displays. The car manufacturers use these because they are cheaper to produce than a mechanical dashboard and easier to fit into the car as there is no mechanical speedometer cable. This new technology has its own problems though. Electrical pulses in the cars wiring can cause the dashboard data, which is stored internally on an EEPROM (Electrically Erasable Programmable Read Only Memory), to become corrupted.
This corruption could happen for a number of reasons:
• the vehicle battery was discharged and the vehicle had been jump started
• the dashboard may develop an electrical fault
• the dashboard may be damaged in a collision or through vandalism.
In these examples, the corruption of the information held in the EEPROM may mean that the mileage displayed on the speedo is now incorrect.
Dashboard correction may also be necessary where a replacement cluster has been purchased, either new or second hand. If it's a new one it will have zero miles on it. If it's a second hand one the mileage displayed is also likely to be different to the original thus requiring correction.
:: What is mileage / Dashboard recalibration ::
Recalibration becomes necessary when the instrument dials on your dashboard malfunction. For example, the fuel gauge may be showing 1/4 full after you have filled the vehicle up, or it may even stop working altogether.
This can also happen to other gauges and dials. On the other hand, you may wish to have the odometer changed from mileage display to kilometre display or vice versa.
That's where we can help by electronically recalibrating the dashboard to either restore faulty gauges and dials, or to change miles to KM and vice versa.
