Whenever your car’s ECU registers a glitch, it generates a fault-code, an alpha-numerical string that indicates the type of issue and the component where it occurred. Modern ECUs keep a detailed record of any and all fault-codes, which we access during car diagnostics in St. Helens to identify any malfunction.
Some components that can create issues
We diagnose almost every part by accessing ECU data. Some of the critical components that we emphasise include –
ABS or Anti-lock Braking System allows you to maintain traction upon sudden braking. Any malfunction with the ABS will be registered as a critical error in the ECU. You will also notice an ABS warning light in your car’s dash.
Bring your vehicle to Blackbrook Motors for car diagnostics in St. Helens whenever you face this issue.
Modern cars have swapped carburettors in exchange for a more efficient fuel injection system. These are also controlled by the ECU, regulating the amount of fuel being pumped into an engine, air-fuel ratio, and timing. Issues with the FI system can result in engine knocks, indicating improper fuel feed.
ECU also controls an engine’s power and cycle management. Issues with an engine’s power cycle will cause it to thwart its output and negatively impacting its mileage.
Usually, a complete car diagnostics test in St. Helens takes about two hours, including minor repairs that might be required.
