Just about everything we do today involves the use of computers. Many of our daily activities and work-related projects use computers to aid in essential tasks. It does not matter whether we are using the Internet for research purposes or for personal pleasure; almost every home in modern-day society is equipped with some kind of computer device. However, few people realize that computers also play an important role when it comes to driving. Onboard computers operate all of our vehicles, but we usually never notice a problem unless a light pops on, such as our “check engine” light. The onboard computer systems in some vehicles are very complicated, with many modern-day trucks and cars having multiple onboard computers that monitor numerous modules. The electrical systems in our contemporary vehicles are extremely reliable, and as a responsible driver, there is nothing you need to do until a problem actually appears. When there is a problem with the electrical components of your engine or something else, typically the “check engine” light will come on inside your vehicle. When this occurs it is time to have a computer diagnostic run on your vehicle to find out what is causing the problem.

When you bring your car or truck into a repair shop for a computer diagnostic, a professional will commonly use a scanner that plugs into your car and sifts through hundreds of trouble codes to find out what kind of problem your vehicle is experiencing. When the “check engine” light appears on your dashboard, it means that there is something not working properly within your vehicle. In order to locate the problem, a car computer diagnostic scanner is used to read specific trouble codes. Many vehicles have over 700 trouble codes, and each single code only displays a general nature of what might be causing the problem. In order to probe deeper into pinpointing out the problem, an expert will look at the vehicle’s onboard computer system for more information. The computer diagnostic gets a picture of what your vehicle was doing when the “check engine” light initially went on, such as the temperature and speed at the time the light came on. This allows professionals to diagnose the problem and fix whatever the problem may be.
