Almost all modern cars come with an On-board Diagnostic (OBD) system that monitors and relays information regarding various vehicle components in real-time to the drivers. However, it& s a highly complicated system and one requires skills and expertise to decipher what the different error codes actually mean.

First introduced in the 1970s by Volkswagen and General Motors, Engine Control Unit or ECU was primarily used to monitor emission levels from the exhaust system closely.
However, the 1980s saw widespread use of OBDs in passenger cars. One of the leading reasons for this swell in popularity was the wide range of car components that could be tested, reducing the time required to finish servicing and get back on the road.
These systems work by detecting any anomaly in the normal functioning of a car. When such inconsistencies are detected, the ECU generates a corresponding error code, which is then relayed to the driver in real-time.
At UK Tyres, we use some of the most advanced hand-held scanners to read error codes and understand underlying issues with your vehicle& s:
One common mistake that many car owners make is that engine diagnostic tests and subsequent error codes can be used to determine the exact component that is malfunctioning. In reality, these error codes only serve as a point of reference, and it boils down to a technician& s competence to find the root of the problem.
That is why, we, UK Tyres, only work with skilled technicians who have a comprehensive understanding of various car components and can quickly identify the real reason why the check engine& light is blinking on your dashboard.
Prevention is better than cure. This holds true for engine diagnostics as well. Car owners should not wait for the check engine light to come on before they bring their vehicles for diagnostic tests. Also, ignoring the warning signs can lead to higher repair costs down the line.
Instead, you should always be on the lookout for the tell-tale signs of faults with your vehicle.
