How it works

Understand car diagnostics

Diagnostic fault codes (DTCs, also called trouble or error codes) identify a particular problem area outside the normal range and show where a fault might be occurring (i.e. fuel mixture too rich) even if the warning light is not showing it.

The modern vehicle contains data from up to 80 complex electronic control units. Carly reads out, interprets, and visualizes that data for you in an easy and understandable way.
