Car Diagnostics Explained

Calling a code scan diagnostics is like calling a slice of bread a sandwich.
A code scan literally reads the error log on the ECU and reports the fault codes (DTCs) found. These fault codes are a pre-programmed response to any varience in expected data values. They only relate to faults that are monitored by sensors. A physical mechanical fault will not necessarily trigger an error code log. Hence that a code scan is not the same as a diagnosis of the fault. Garages often offer code scans for peanuts but fail to explain to you that the code scan isn’t really a diagnosis of the fault on your car.
