What is a "Fault code"?

DTC Delete Tuning Service. Vehicle fault codes or vehicle P codes are also known as Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC). These are codes and data in the vehicle's ECU to indicate an issue with the engine management system. The purpose of a fault code is to help identify the area and location of the problem. And hence assisting technicians in tracing and fixing an issue.

DTC and fault codes are made of one letter and four numbers that allow the identification of an error and understanding of the reasons for its occurrence. The first character is a letter, typically a P, for the engine management system. And the four remaining characters consist of numbers that identify a component or type of issue.

Function Delete and Fault Code Removal

Removing functions from an engine

Some owners may want to remove specific engine and engine management system functions. For example, this can include operations and components such as swirl flaps delete, EGR delete, start-stop, etc.

With this done, the engine management system will raise a Fault Code or P-Code, leading to the "check engine light" being on. Boston Diagnostics can disable this function and engine fault code, preventing the engine from dropping into & "limp home" mode.

Ghost Engine Fault Codes

Sometimes vehicles will develop a fault code and a check engine light issue. Usually, these issues are traced, and a repair can be carried out. However, occasionally vehicles can develop a ghost fault code, a fault code, or a P-code that may initially clear. But, it soon comes back to haunt the owner, randomly coming on for no reason and becoming almost impossible to trace and repair.

If you are getting a ghost fault code, that will just not be clear. Boston Diagnostics can help. With full access to the engine's ECU and software. We can track and trace the code within the ECU and remove it permanently, leaving all other functions intact and working.
