This process is made possible above all by linking all vehicle elements and installing countless sensors. Problems on the axles, brake discs, oil levels, brake fluid, the assistance systems and the software itself can thus be quickly detected.
By reading out the fault memory, our Engine diagnostics Newport experts can quickly identify defects at an early stage during an inspection, for example, which could lead to greater risk if they are not rectified.
The regular automated analysis by the control unit can detect any problems and store them in the fault memory. Reading out this collected data is then comparatively easy so that our technicians can eliminate all defects in a targeted manner.
In the end, engine diagnostics in Newport can above all increase the service life of the vehicle and reduce the overall repair costs through early intervention.
The OBD-II interface represents the access point through which this memory can be read out. It is a plug-in connection to which an external device must be connected. It is often located next to the steering wheel behind a cover.
OBD-II device for reading and erasing the fault memory
A special diagnostic device is required to read out the error memory. This is connected to the vehicle's control unit via the OBD-II interface.
Engine diagnostics Newport - what we use:
The devices we use are equipped with special software for reading out the fault memory. On an integrated, small display, it shows the error messages stored in the memory device, including the four-digit error codes. Not every error displayed is relevant or is to be considered a problem. Some of the errors are due to incorrect measured values.
