Today's modern motor vehicles are run by computers and sensors which are all around the engine and the vehicle itself. It is these sensors that constantly gather information and sends the captured data back to the relevant on-board computer. This computer is known as an Engine Control Unit (ECU) which continually monitors the performance of the vehicle. The sensors report back to the ECU if there are problems such as emissions control, resulting in reduced fuel economy or increased engine temperature.
When an issue is identified the ECU generates an error code. The relevant dashboard warning lights will then be displayed. There are literally hundreds of potential error codes that can only be read by specialist car diagnostic equipment. While a warning light may display on the dashboard alerting you to an issue, a diagnostics check is required to understand the full extent and cause of the problem.
