How to Read Diagnostic Codes?

1 minuteread

Reading Diagnostic Codes:

Diagnostic codes are vital to understanding when your vehicle has difficulty, long before complete failure. The challenge is that, whether or not it tells you which of the system has difficulty, it won’t tell you why. As an example, a cylinder misfire will send a P030X code. The “X” informs you of which cylinder misfired, but that’s all the knowledge you’ll get. So, while the system isn’t perfect, DTC gives you a large advantage in maintenance and repair.

To read DTC, you’ll need a diagnostic connector. This scan tool will provide you with the codes in an exceedingly one-line description, and will even provide the definition of the code. Basic code readers are likely to only offer you the quantity. For the definition, you’ll have to keep your own database for your specific model.

Besides employing a diagnostic scanner, you’ll be able to also use telematics devices to observe engine diagnostics. Telematics systems monitor your engine and systems in real-time and provide you with a warning to issues as they arise. The proper telematics system will put you sooner than the sport when it involves repairs—and hopefully keep you from any unwanted maintenance. Telematics systems may monitor your fuel consumption, idle time, driver behavior, and far more.
