Today’s cars all have several computers that control different systems of the car. The usual systems on most cars include: engine, transmission, airbag, abs, and body. Some cars like BMW, Cadillac, Audi, Volkswagen, Jaguar, Volvo, and Mercedes Benz go extreme and have dozens of computers and use advanced computerized technology to do virtually most basic electronic functions inside the vehicle. When a computer problem occurs, these systems usually store a fault code. Besides a noticeable problem, most of these systems will give you a warning either with a warning lamp or a scrolling message on your dashboard.

There are so many types of automotive computer systems used on many makes and models. Many cars and trucks before 1995 use OBD-I computer systems. Many of these systems are fairly basic and are limited on information and functions. After 1995, all cars, trucks, vans and suvs use OBD-II computerized systems. The U.S. government made OBD-II mandatory to help assist auto repair shops with being able to universally be able to diagnose and repair engine control computer systems to help with reducing emissions by making it easier to read the engine computer. Computer diagnostics are, now days, much more advanced since there are computers for multiple automotive systems.

Unfortunately, in most cases a computer code is just a place to start looking and requires more than just reading a code. In some cases, a code may be caused by many different possibilities of problems and the only way to resolve that problem is by using the proper equipment and tests to accurately figure out the problem and fix it.
