Engine & Vehicle Diagnostics

Braeside Motor’s vehicle and engine diagnostics will help keep your engine running at optimum power and efficiency.

Many of todays cars are now governed mainly by a built-in computer called the Engine Control Module (ECM/ECU).

It is responsible for the correct running of the engine for optimum power and efficiency. This in turn means that it has to have several inputs from different components of the engine.

This is where all the engine component sensors come into play. They give the ECM/ECU all the data it needs for it to make the engine run efficiently.

These sensors, as with most electrical components can and do go wrong often, leading to poor engine running and poor fuel economy.

Most of these vehicles can only be diagnosed using the latest diagnostic equipment, used for communicating with the vehicles’ computer(s).

Nowadays, vehicles can sometimes have more than one computer responsible for the operation of the vehicle. Some of today’s cars have more than 60 computers! Each one responsible for a specific system in the car i.e. wipers, lighting, central locking, audio systems, cruise control, Anti lock Braking Systems (ABS), Traction control (TCS), etc.

Each of the computers are constantly ‘talking’ to each other for seamless system operation. This is exactly what happens when for example, it is raining and you select reverse gear, the transmission computer talks to the wiper system computer that the vehicle is going to reverse, the wiper computer then puts on the rear wipers so the driver can clearly see while he/she reverses the vehicle.

This is all clever stuff and naturally, it needs clever equipment to communicate and correctly diagnose these computers, when problems arise.
