Electronics play an essential role in modern cars. They contribute to three major factors:

  • Safety: Anti-Lock Brakes (ABS), Electronic Stability (ESP) and Anti-Slip (ASR) systems.
  • Comfort: air-conditioning, park distance control, GPS.
  • Respect for the environment.

What is electronic diagnostics?


Your car is equipped with a diagnostics socket so the diagnostics instruments can communicate with the electronics in your car. The First Stop technicians receive regular training in all the latest technologies. They know all makes, and are familiar with all the latest models on the market.


The First Stop points-of-sale are equipped with state-of-the-art diagnostics tools. These devices can communicate with the different systems inside your car. This process will allow our technicians to detect electronic failures in memory (default codes) and fix them. We can also do a health check-up of the electronics in your car.


Our teams give you a complete overview after the intervention, including the provided services. We pride ourselves on full transparency.
