Today, car manufacturers include at least one computer in motor vehicles. This computer's main function is to monitor and adjust engine and transmission operations. The computer receives input information from different sensors. The computer controls spark plugs, idle speed, and fuel injectors so as to get you the best possible car performance. Failure of the car computer will greatly affect the things it controls. To get the most out of your car's computer, have it evaluated regularly for updates and proper operation. If it is already failing, have it repaired or replaced. To have your car's computer handled by experts, visit Ridge Auto and Tire in Basking Ridge, NJ 07920 today.
Ridge Auto and Tire has state-of-the-art equipment to provide computer reflashing to our customers in the Basking Ridge area. The primary reason to reflash a computer (which basically means updating or reinstalling its software) is that an update has been issued by the manufacturer. It's a very simple procedure, and there may be minor updates that the car hasn't had. The manufacturer may have tweaked the transmission-shifting algorithm or some other parameters that are not crucial but may bring slight improvements to drivability, mileage or emissions. Since auto manufacturers are coming out with automobile updates every day, there may be a reprogram available for your vehicle. Stop by Ridge Auto and Tire or call us at 908-234-1947 to schedule an appointment!

Drivability is the degree of smoothness and steadiness of your car's acceleration. Most modern cars are fitted with on-board computers that continuously check the readings from various sensors. In case of drivability problems, you will receive a warning message on your car's dashboard.

At Ridge Auto and Tire, we have the necessary tools, training, and technology to diagnose and address your car's drivability issues.
Basically, an engine control system is an on-board computer in your car. Like all computers, the engine controls are composed of hardware and software. Automotive engine control systems are responsible for regulating exhaust emissions, and providing increased fuel economy. To get the best out of your car's incredibly powerful technology, make sure engine controls are working properly. To check if your car's engine controls are working properly, call Ridge Auto and Tire today.

I rarely write online reviews but I had to stop and let consumers know this shop goes above and beyond your expectations. I moved out of state during covid 19 and had a huge problem with car emissions in the other state I moved to. Mo took on my problem as HIS problem and made calls to the state authorities to get me the information needed to get the emissions documents extended in the place Moved. It saved me having to go to Florida (where my daughter is using the car for college) and drive it back to the northeast simply for an emissions test. thank you for all your help Mo
