How To Diagnose Engine Errors ?

When a car's on-board diagnostics system identifies a problem with the car's performance, it turns on a dashboard warning light and registers a code that identifies the issue. This engine error code, called a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC), is stored in the OBD system and can only be accessed by connecting a scan, or diagnostic tool into the EOBD diagnostic socket and reading the DTC off the display of the scanner.
