Practically, each of cars offered currently and available in the today’s automotive market have less or more attractive and comfortable electronic features. Obviously, this entails a number of various opinions both positive and negative in reception. One of huge advantages noticed both by motorcar mechanics and car users is a much faster option of failure detection. Obviously, this is possible due to the use of car on-board computer and some controllers responsible for operation of a specified mechanical subassembly. After skilful connecting to the computer and proper parameter checking we gain information of a faulty component. Thus we know what to do to eliminate it effectively. However, its negative side for many people can be repair cost for a faulty component that is typically slightly higher than that of older cars without, for example, the assistance controller. For this component the repair is found to be typically quite expensive. Obviously, this depends to large extent on a subassembly failed in your car.
Assistance System Controller
Each vehicle contains the central control unit, and in the case of defect of failure one of controllers, the diagnostic tester becomes connected to it through the OBDII connector. The tester enables the fault to recognized properly. For example, the engine and gearbox controllers are connected to the module. Apart from that the module coordinates also the work of safety and driving comfort system.
Both the module itself and each of controllers are typical units that employ the most recent technological solutions used in the automotive industry. However, in most cases it is not cost-effective to do repairs, but rather replace the module by a new model.
