If you notice a “check engine” or a “service engine soon” light in your instrument cluster, there are chances that your vehicle has stored a diagnostic trouble code. This sign displays when the computer system of your vehicle has detected a problem with various systems it controls. Your vehicle’s systems are monitored by various sensors, and if the trouble code light has been illuminated, your vehicle enters into the “limp mode.” In this situation, your vehicle will run on a predetermined program resulting in poor mileage and increased emissions.
An engine trouble code reader is an easy-to-use tool. All 1996 and newer vehicles utilize a “D” style plug-in connector which connects to the code reader. Most of the vehicles have this connector located at the driver’s compartment. Once the code reader is plugged in, we can get the trouble codes stored in the memory by the engine computer. Accurate computer system functioning is important for optimum functionality of your car’s engine. Many engine runability problems can be related to a weak or failing sensor producing a diagnostic trouble code. Problems can range from hard cold engine starting, low power, and stalling while driving.
In order to check your engine thoroughly, a certified technician transmits information from your vehicle’s computer into a diagnostic tool. This tool helps the technician to get the information that is needed to properly diagnose why your vehicle’s check engine light is illuminated.
