Regular diagnostic tests can detect problems with your vehicle before they require expensive repairs, or worse, leave your vehicle stranded on the side of the road after a breakdown. And while many people think diagnostic tests are only necessary when the check engine light comes on, there are many benefits to taking a proactive approach to vehicle maintenance.
Of all the technological advances in the automotive sector over the decades, one of the most beneficial to consumers and HGV technicians alike has been the computerisation of the vehicles’s components. Using specialised software, vehicle diagnostic tools quickly and accurately point to problem areas in a vehicles’s engine or elsewhere, thanks to built-in processors, microchips and sensors.
Diagnostic tests can reveal problems within a vehicle’s engine, transmission, exhaust system, brakes, and other major components, as well as performance issues with the fuel injector, air flow and coolant, ignition coils, throttle, etc. However, a common misconception about vehicle diagnostic tests is that technicians can use code-reading tools to determine the exact problem that triggered the check engine light. In reality, the code tells technicians which engine or component parameters are out of range, but it does not detail the cause of the problems. That’s where the good old human brain comes in handy, as the technician uses experience and expertise to diagnose the underlying problem.
Before the emergence of vehicle diagnostic tests, identifying problems was time-consuming and expensive, especially considering vehicle owners only brought their lorries to mechanics after a breakdown or other severe malfunction. Now, computerised vehicle components can detect problems long before they cause a breakdown. Diagnostic tools can also check a on board’s computer system for manufacturer notifications and stored information about the vehicle’s history, giving technicians a complete picture in order to perform the best repair possible.
