Factory Mercedes Benz Star Diagnostic Tool
THE STAR DIAGNOSTIC TOOL AND WHY IT IS NECESSARY FOR PROPER MERCEDES BENZ AUTOMOBILE DIAGNOSIS
The Star Diagnostic Tool is a specialized OBD (On-Board Diagnostics) reader calibrated specifically for “Mercedes Benz.” How does it work? By reading the messages sent when your check engine light illuminates. Check engine lights are frightening. Unfortunately the check engine light does not give the driver an exact diagnosis on what is wrong, or which part of the engine needs to be checked. The check engine light is simply designed to let the Mercedes Benz owner know there is a potential problem. Austrian Motors recommends to schedule an appointment immediately and allow our mechanics to utilize the Star Diagnostics Tool to determine the exact issue.
In many service centers they will have a standard, run-of-the-mill OBD reader, and this works fine for many cars; however, your Mercedes needs something a little more fine- tuned. A standard OBD reader cannot decipher some of the basic information being transmitted, such as the make and model of your car, and can therefore lead mechanics to a false diagnosis. The technology behind the Star Diagnostic Tool allows its user to pinpoint the exact location of any malfunction in the Mercedes, regardless of the make, model, or generation. Without the Star Diagnostic Tool, mechanics can only offer a stab in the dark, potentially leaving the real problem unsolved.
Fortunately, here at Austrian Motors we utilize a fully up-to-date Star Diagnostic Tool. Our qualified Mercedes Benz Technicians are experienced and know how to use the Star Diagnostic tool to find even the most complex issue. Bringing your Mercedes to us for servicing means that you will receive the absolute best treatment and when you drive away, you will feel confident in knowing your Mercedes Benz was properly diagnosed and repaired accordingly.
