Air Suspension Modules

Range Rover Air Suspension

Increasingly, air suspension is a feature on luxury cars. We have started our range with the Range Rover air modulator.

We are always interested in seeing new similar products

 

Body Control Modules

Body control modules (BCM's) for cars are a new and exciting area for the whole automotive industry. Instead of
having separate circuits for all a cars functions such as lights and electric windows, all inputs will flow into one
box, and all operations of the car will be controlled via this box. Safety critical systems such as engine
management and ABS will however remain separate for the time being. While this will make fault diagnosis of
all these usually separate systems a little easier by just needing one diagnosis tool, the complexity of bringing
together all these systems will mean the likely hood of more failures as time progresses and cars run out of
warranty.

Body control modules have long been a part of large American cars. These were still rather simple devices only
controlling automatic headlights for when it got dark. The first European car to contain a BCM was a Range
Rover '95 and Discovery. These BCM (or BECM's as they are called in this case), have already been failing
regularly. Typical failings are headlights, indicators, door-locks, sunroof and wipers. In the case of Range
Rovers the rebuilds of the original BCM's have to be performed because of security measures such as coded
immobilisers. BCM are now commonplace in luxury vehicles such as Mercedes and BMW's, and as the
technology matures, are becoming common in family cars. We have identified numerous cars that are suffering
from failing BCM's and are now out of warranty for which we are in the process of developing solutions. Recently
added to our product range:

ECU Controlled Alternators

High spec import vehicles are now being fitted with ECU controlled alternators. The Mitsubishi FTO is a common failure We can test and rebuild these at a considerable saving to the customer.

 

Idle Control Valves

Mitsubishi Idle Control ValveThis type of idle control valve is fitted to the manifold of many vehicles including Suzuki, Hyundai, Proton, and of course Mitsubishi. They are commonly failing in the stuck open position (fast idle). In order to test if the valve has failed, disconnect the electrical plug with the engine just running. Turn ignition off. Then restart ignition and refit plug. If the valve is working correctly the idle speed should immediately increase even higher. If not, call BBA if you would like a quote for a reman unit.
