Advanced fault diagnostics technology

Our patrols have the latest fault diagnostic equipment enabling them to fix more faults at the roadside.

As vehicles have become more advanced, working out what is wrong with them has become increasingly complex. This is why we give all our patrols laptops that allow them to fix more of our members’ vehicles at the roadside as quickly as possible.

This capability complements the 500-plus parts and tools each patrol van carries and means every RAC patrol can diagnose more faults and carry out repairs by programming new parts. This reduces the need for a visit to the garage in the event of a breakdown.

We update our diagnostic software throughout the year to keep pace with the latest vehicle technology
