On Board Diagnostics

on board diagnosticsYou are probably like most non-auto repair technicians in asking, “What the heck are on-board diagnostics?” It is actually simpler than it sounds. On-board diagnostics, often referred to as OBD, is the system of interconnected computers and sensors in your vehicle that monitor your vehicle’s performance and status. Think about all the indicators and warning lights on your car’s dashboard. All of these are a part of the on-board diagnostics system, and all are constantly monitoring the status and health of the various systems in your vehicle. While this system is working all the time, it also provides the benefit of being easily able to read by a trained auto repair tech, so we can figure out any problems with your car in a jiffy. So if you’ve got warning lights activated, make an appointment with Adams Automotive Center for on-board diagnostics in Eau Claire, WI.

The instinct most drivers have when a warning light is activated is to ignore it and hope it goes away, but that is an unrealistic wish. Your on-board diagnostic system works hard every day to monitor the various systems in your vehicle, and if something is triggered, it is generally for a good reason. And these problems definitely don’t just go away on their own; in fact, they often get worse and worse over time. So if your on-board diagnostics system is trying to tell you something, you should listen.
