Automotive Diagnostics & Electrical Repair Service in Calgary, Alberta

Mechanic doing Truck Diagnostics & Electrical Service at Foothills

Modern vehicles have certainly evolved over time and are a complex design of moving parts and intricate electrical systems. Have you ever been driving along and all of a sudden the warning light pops up on your dashboard and you don’t have a clue why? Clearly, this is an indication that something is wrong - but what? Many people believe that when an electrical problem occurs with their truck, they have to take it to a dealer for diagnostic testing. Not only is this often expensive, but it can also be quite stressful and time-consuming. Foothills Group recognizes this and it is one of the reasons why we specialize in Dodge, Ford and GM trucks, vans and SUV’s. And because our technicians work on these vehicles extensively day in and day out, they have ongoing training on these vehicles specifically. This allows us to be extremely accurate and efficient with diagnosing and repairing your vehicles. 

Beyond this, we have invested heavily in factory-level diagnostic tools and support to be able to offer the same level of expert diagnostics as dealers. We offer these services at a fraction of the cost of a dealer with a much more personalized experience.

What issues are identified with diagnostic services? 

There are many common truck repairs that are relatively easy to diagnose. Owners of diesel vehicles may think that because diesel engines are now computer-controlled, the technician should be able to hook up a scan tool to analyze data to pinpoint problems. And this is true in many cases, but sometimes, there are issues that are more difficult and require more advanced diagnosis and experience. 

At Foothills Group, we engage only the most advanced (and expensive) technicians and equipment in order to facilitate the most efficient and accurate diagnosis of electrical symptoms. Isolating wiring and the various modules can be a lengthy process as they are all hidden quite well underneath and inside trim panels, carpeting, wiring looms and such. Our diagnostic and electrical services cover the following areas:

  • ASB faults
  • Fuel injection problems on all diesel engines
  • Flat spot problems and misfiring
  • Exhaust emission faults
  • Diesel particle filter (DPF) problems
  • Engine management faults

At Foothills Group we have full diesel diagnostic facilities and the largest amount of diagnostic tools available. Our fully qualified technicians have the experience and equipment to diagnose and resolve a wide range of electrical and computer-generated faults. We are able to resolve a large number of diagnostic problems quickly and affordably. The use of factory diagnostic scan tools gives our technicians the same abilities as the dealership when repairing your vehicle. Not only are our services a fraction of the cost of dealerships, but you will leave satisfied with the personalized treatment you received.
