There is a common misconception that ‘engine diagnostics’ and ‘vehicle diagnostics’ are similar processes. Engine diagnostics rely mostly on the Engine Control Unit or ECU which generates error codes, known variably as Diagnostics Troubles Codes or DTCs. However, professional vehicle diagnostics covers a lot more ground.

All modern cars have hundreds of sensors built-in. They receive and send information to several on-board computers, which then analyse the information. Note that an ECU is merely one such computer which collates error codes from specific areas.
The ‘brain’ of a modern passenger car, is its PCM or Powertrain Control Module. It is a control unit that consists of the ECU and the Transmission Control Unit or TCU. In some premium cars manufactured by Chrysler, a third computer is also present: a Body Control Module or BCM.
This is a key point of difference between standard engine diagnostics and more comprehensive car or vehicle diagnostics.
To further complicate things, BMW and Citroen use different terminologies: ‘Injector Control Unit’ and ‘Digital Motor Electronics’ respectively.
Note that these are all PCMs.
Since a PCM acts as the central component, all sensors report directly to it. It controls all the parts of a car, while its subsidiary ECU is responsible primarily for engine-specific issues.
We follow a standardised process that reflects the industry’s best practices. The steps are mentioned below:
However, rest assured that we will never commence any repair or services without your permission.
Please note that not all issues can be solved using these tools. That is why Dack Motor Group’s master technicians will also manually inspect some elements.
