All modern vehicles are equipped with an on-board computer diagnostic system (OBDII) that constantly monitors your vehicle’s major operating systems and, most importantly, the power-train (engine and transmission). The main purpose of monitoring these systems is to ensure that the vehicle is operating at top efficiency with the lowest possible emissions. As fuel economy and emission control have become increasingly important and complex, your vehicle’s electronics systems need to constantly adjust and fine-tune various parameters according to driving conditions (such as vehicle load, temperature, and air/fuel mix to name just a few). When the computer reads that any of these parameters do not fall within the acceptable range for operating the vehicle, your CHECK ENGINE LIGHT comes on to warn you that you may have a serious problem and to take your vehicle to a certified technician to diagnose the problem and restore it to manufacturer’s specification.
