On-board diagnostics

Drivers in Indianapolis choose ASG Automotive whenever they need auto repair, especially on-board diagnostics. Our ASE-Certified or Bosch-Certified auto technicians wield specialized factory equipment and programming, which our competitors often don’t have access to. In fact, some dealerships seek us out for assistance when they are faced with a complicated diagnostic problem that they can’t even solve. If you’re looking for the best when it comes to onboard diagnostic repair, our team at ASG Automotive is the place to go.

Your car’s onboard diagnostic system is what auto mechanics use to discover what systems are functioning optimally, and what systems need to be addressed. For example, if your vehicle is stalling, accelerating slowly, or has unusual clunking sounds, these could indicate any number of parts or systems are dysfunctional. Using the onboard diagnostics, we can narrow our search to a particular system or component, e.g., the drive train system. Then, rather than inspecting the entire car, which is an expensive and time-consuming process, we can go straight to the drivetrain system and examine just those parts. Our expertly trained auto mechanics can then figure out where the trouble is, and get it corrected.

The important thing to keep in mind is that although the on-board diagnostics system is helpful, it doesn’t always highlight what the problem is. Often, the onboard diagnostic system only highlights the general area the problem is located in. That means you still need seasoned automotive experts like those at ASG Automotive to complete the diagnosis to resolve the problem. Consider this recent 5-star review from Casey Quella about how his experience at ASG Automotive stood out:

“I went to ASG Automotive to get help with my Chevy Equinox that had been sitting in my garage for a couple years. My Equinox needed a lot of work, they did an assessment on it and gave me a full report detailing things that needed to be fixed right away, things that we could put off for a while, and everything in green was good as is. They took photos of the things that needed repairs which was helpful. I’ve worked with Scott primarily and he’s been very communicative and helpful in explaining everything. I plan on taking my car here for all future repairs, they’re super fast, fairly priced and great to work with.”

Get around car on-board diagnostics errors with ASG Automotive

Once your OBD signals a fault that lasts for two or more driving cycles, go see an auto mechanic. There are four standard on-board diagnostics error codes for all types of vehicles:

  • Letter in the first position. The first letter indicates the functional part of the vehicle the error occurred in (e.g., P codes for Powertrain and B codes for Body issues).
  • Number in the second position. 0 or 2 (in some cases 3) denote a standard (universal) OBD code. 1 (or sometimes 3) stands for vehicle manufacturer’s specific codes.
  • Number in the third position. It identifies the system the fault occurred in, such as 1/2 (fuel supply), 3 (ignition system/mixture misfires), 4 (exhaust after-treatment systems), or 7/8 (gearbox).
  • Two digits in the fourth position. These indicate the failed component and the type of failure.

Even if you know how to read the error code, let us perform professional car on-board diagnostics in Indianapolis. We’ll eliminate the problem quickly, coming up with the optimal solution with the least amount of harm to your wallet.
