Car Diagnostics and Repair
Your car is equipped with an engine management computer that uses diagnostic software to monitor various engine control systems and communicate any identified issues.
Computers are dotted all around newer cars, and when there is a problem, it takes a highly skilled mechanic to find the root cause of the problem. Nowadays, it is much harder for a person to work on their own vehicle due to the number of electronics.
the technology illuminates the check engine light and stores the onboard diagnostic (OBD) codes your auto repair professional will use to help pinpoint the underlying issue.
A code reader is needed to access the codes from the vehicle’s computer. Your local auto repair shop or auto parts store typically offer code reading services, or you may have your own code reader to complete this step yourself.
The latest generation of codes (OBD II) are the same for all cars. Each code consists of a five-digit alphanumeric string beginning with the letter P.
Diagnostic Code Translator
Once you have obtained the codes, use the Diagnostic Code Translator tool below to get more information about the issue your car may have. These codes provide the vital clues your auto repair professional will need to identify potential causes of the problem.
From what should make things easier, can make it harder, and even skilled mobile mechanics in London can be led to the wrong area when a symptom is caused by something else. Computers and warning lights show the main problem, and depending on the part of the engine, there could be up to five things that lead to the warning light being displayed.
Diagnostic trouble codes do not automatically mean you will incur an expensive repair. Often a cleaning or part replacement, a new filter or spark plugs, or changing a faulty belt or wire will resolve the issue. The trained technicians and mechanics at AAA Approved Auto Repair shops can assist with your car services and help you avoid spending money on parts and repairs your vehicle may not need.

If your check engine light flashes while you are operating the vehicle, continue to the nearest safe location. This system alert signifies an issue requiring immediate service.
