How to Understand the Fault Codes with Carly

So you’ve run a health check/diagnostics on your car and some codes have popped up. But the codes aren’t helpful if you don’t understand what they mean! Luckily, Carly not only shows the codes, but also tells you how severe they could be, and gives you the option to quickly lookup additional information about the codes online. This helps you get a sense of which codes are harmless and which ones you might need to take a closer look at.

Which electronic control units the Health diagnostics feature covers depends on your car brand. Brands such as BMW, Mini, Audi, Skoda, Volkswagen, Seat, Toyota, Lexus, Mercedes, Renault, and Porsche have been in development for a long time and have more functions available. This includes manufacturer-level diagnosis on systems such as engine, transmission, emissions, ABS, airbag, multimedia, and more.

Other brands were implemented more recently and so we currently offer the OBD functions (OBD health or diagnosis, OBD parameters, and Emissions check) for the time being, which covers the most critical systems.

We are improving the Carly solution all the time, therefore the design of the app might have changed and functionalities may have been added since the video was filmed.
