Most modern-day automobiles feature an onboard computer in which error and fault codes are stored. Using a scanning tool, mechanics and car owners can read these codes to troubleshoot their problems. The following two reports explore the automotive scanning tool market and where it's headed.
The average U.S. car now lasts for 11 year. That's up from eight years in the year 1999. If a driver wants his or her car to last 11 years, though, they must maintain it by identifying and fixing problems. Thankfully, this task is easily accomplished using an automotive diagnostic scan tool.
So, what is an automotive diagnostic scan tool, and how does it work exactly? This handheld device is designed to read error and fault codes stored on a car's computer.
All modern-day cars, trucks and vehicles have a computer on which these codes are stored. This is done to assist mechanics and drivers in diagnosing problems. To read these codes, however, a driver or mechanic must connect a diagnostic scan tool to the automobile. Once connected, the scan tool will read and display any codes stored on the computer.
The code itself doesn't necessarily reveal the problem or fault. Rather, it simply serves as an identifier. After identifying the code, the mechanic or driver must then search for the code to determine the underlying problem. Sometimes all this requires is searching for the code online. Alternatively, there are automotive manuals that provide code definitions. And once the problem has been identified by cross-referencing the code, the driver or mechanic can perform the necessary repairs to fix it, thus making an automotive diagnostic scan tool a smart investment that can extend a car's life.
