Vehicle Diagnostics & Code Reading

About Vehicle Diagnostics, Trouble Codes & Fault Codes 

Most modern vehicles have many wonderful conveniences, whether these are for economy, performance, comfort or safety. They can be very complex and to achieve this complexity as efficiently as possible they have many sum systems that are all controlled by an ECU, the brain of the vehicle. The sub systems are controlled by the ECU and those systems report back to it to make sure everything is OK.

Much like you, when something goes wrong, say say twist your ankle, a signal goes from the area of pain, in this example your ankle, back to brain to let it know there is an issue. The brain then stops you using that part of your body and, well, waits for it to be fixed.

Unlike most people, a car can’t simply speak to us to tell us something is wrong. Well, actually, in a way they can. In the first instance via a warning light on the dashboard to inform the driver of an issue. Secondly, once the vehicle is recovered to a vehicle diagnostics specialist, via a diagnostics tool which is plugged in the cars brain, its ECU.

The car’s faults are stored as codes which the Vehicle Diagnostic Tool reports back. The fault codes or trouble codes which they are also known as, are assigned to different sub systems and parts of the vehicle to identify the fault.

Reasons for Fault Codes, Simple Fix 

Some fault codes and trouble codes are straight forward and simple to rectify. Maybe your battery went flat. Maybe you’re a home mechanic and you’ve swapped a steering wheel or a sensor and you’ve an airbag light. We can simply clear the code.
