Vehicle Diagnostics in Greensboro, North Carolina

Vehicle diagnostics denotes the process of figuring out what’s wrong with a car. It includes using special tools, software, and equipment to connect to the vehicle’s onboard computer systems, collect data, and analyze the performance of different vehicle parts. The main goal of this testing is to find any faults, malfunctions, or possible problems that could affect the vehicle’s performance, safety, or emissions.

The process can contain many steps, including the following:

  • Onboard Diagnostics (OBD). Most new cars have an Onboard Diagnostics system, like OBD-II, built in. This system monitors different sensors and parts, and when something goes wrong, it saves diagnostic trouble codes that tell what the problem is.
  • Diagnostic Scan Tools. Our team uses vehicle diagnostics scan tools to connect to a car’s OBD system and get the codes that have been saved. These tools can also get live data from different sensors, which tells us how the vehicle is doing.
  • Trouble Code Interpretation. After we retrieve the codes, we can determine what is wrong with the car. Each code stands for a different problem with one of the car’s functions. Our team can also look at live data from different monitors and parts to compare how well they work with what is expected. This helps find problems that might not set off a code but could still affect how well the car runs.
