The Engine Control Unit
The ECU is an onboard computer that is continually being fed information from numerous sensors located around your vehicle. When an error or anomaly is detected by one of these sensors, this information is fed back to the ECU - often being displayed as a warning light on the dashboard.
Your ECU is responsible for monitoring a number of systems including:
- Fuel Injection Systems
- Stability Control
- Anti-lock Braking System
- Engine Management System
- Airbag Systems
- Vehicle Emission System
- Power-Train Control Module
- Air Control Valves
You may also experience some of the symptoms of a faulty ECU itself, this can include things like: the engine check light coming on, engine stalling or misfiring, engine performance issues or your car might fail to start. If you are having any problems with your vehicle let Matfield MOT Centre / Home Base Autos get you back on the road safely.
