Our Volvo service has an extensive list of checks. KVMS has the latest equipment, VIDA, which allows our qualified technicians to diagnose any problems quickly and efficiently.

Volvo Warranty Is Protected By Us

European law, known as “Block Exemption”, changed in 2003, which means that Independent Garages can carry out a Volvo service without making your Volvo warranty invalid. A Volvo service with KVMS means that your car service has its warranty protected, because we use genuine parts which are of “Original Equipment” (OE) quality standard. All Volvo service books are stamped on every Volvo service we do – also each Volvo service carries a 12 month Parts and labour Guarantee.

The interim and full service schedule descriptions we provide are just a guide of what we do and will vary on what each manufacturer service schedule says. Some additional items maybe required to comply with your warranty, however, we always provide a complete quote before anything additional is carried out.

Volvo Diagnostic Test

Have you noticed a dashboard light coming on or wondered why your car didn’t seem to be running properly? At KVMS we can carry out vehicle diagnostics for all Volvo models. Using tools from VIDA (Vehicle Information and Diagnostics for After Sales), equipment, we can identify and sort out all problems associated with engine diagnostics.

You don’t have to go to a dealership for a Volvo car diagnostic test. At KVMS we can take care of vehicle diagnostics.

Most modern cars have the capability to produce a large variety of fault codes which get stored in the vehicle’s memory system. Some cars have several units which control engine management, brakes, suspension and even windscreen wipers.  With the diagnostic equipment at our disposal it is possible to identify the correct cause of the fault or problem and rectify it before the problem escalates.

What Sort of Vehicle Diagnostics Equipment Do We Use?

Volvos serviced in ChesterAs we specialise in Volvo Vehicles we of course have the Vehicle Information and Diagnostics for After-sales (VIDA) System. VIDA is a necessary tool to enable us to fully diagnose and properly repair and service Volvo cars from 1999 and later models. This Enigma-powered system ties together all of the resources that we, as technicians, rely on everyday, including service manuals, electronic parts catalogues, engine diagnostic interfaces and software downloads for on-board automotive control systems. So you can be sure if you bring your Volvo vehicle to us for a car diagnostic test we have all of the equipment to fully diagnose any problems.

We also have Autologic, Autodiagnos, Bosch, Delphi & Vagcom engine diagnostic equipment which we can plug into your car’s electronic control system enabling us to give a fast, accurate diagnosis of your vehicle’s problem. Once we've identified the issues we can then carry out a cost effective service or repair of the vehicle.

When we carry out a car diagnostic test it can disclose a number of problems associated with the transmission, oil tank, petrol tank, exhaust system and other parts of the vehicle. Most modern vehicles with their computer processors, microchips and sensors can be linked to a car diagnostic system to determine exactly where the problem lies.

The car diagnostic test can tell you about the following areas of a vehicle – ignition timing problems, level of build-up in the engine, the performance of the fuel injector, firing of the ignition coils, engine rpm levels, air and coolant temperature, crankshaft and camshaft position and the throttle opening. Vehicle repairs can then be identified and carried out if necessary.

The benefits of a car diagnostic test mean that our mechanics can identify the problem quickly; order parts if necessary and will have the problem fixed before it becomes an inconvenience. As a car owner you often have no idea why the ‘engine’ light appears in the dashboard, you only know that it is not something good. Let KVMS run a diagnostic check and sort the problem out speedily and efficiently.
