Diagnosis on board
WHAT IS OBD?
On-board diagnostics, or OBD, is an automotive term that refers to a vehicle's self-diagnostic and reporting capability. The OBD systems provide the vehicle owner or the repair technician with access to information on the health status of the different vehicle subsystems. The amount of diagnostic information available through OBD has varied widely since the introduction in early 1980 of vehicle on-board computers, which made OBD possible. The first instances of OBD would simply illuminate a malfunction indicator light, or MIL, if a problem were detected, but would not provide any information about the nature of the problem. Modern OBD deployments use a standardized digital communications port to provide real-time data, in addition to a standardized series of diagnostic trouble codes, or DTCs, that allow for quick identification and remediation of vehicle failures.
The OBD system provides owners an early warning of malfunctions through a "Check Engine" control panel light (also known as a malfunction indicator light or MIL, for short). Giving vehicle owners this early warning, OBD protects not only the environment, but also consumers, identifying minor problems before they become large repair bills.
Energy tuning and economy
WHAT IS THE OBD TUNING ?
In the engine tuning industry, three phrases are often used interchangeably. These are: 'OBD Tuning', 'Chip Tuning' and 'ECU Remapping'. OBD stands for Onboard Diagnostics. To understand this, the word port is important because without the port, on-board diagnostics would not exist; Just as it did not exist in the eighties. Therefore, any 'OBD port setting' or 'obd port remapping' is only motor tuning or remapping of the completed motor through the use of the car's obd port.
HOW DO I KNOW THAT THE OBD SYSTEM IS WORKING CORRECTLY ?
When you turn on the ignition, the "Service Engine Soon" or "Check Engine" light should flash briefly, indicating that the OBD system is ready to scan your vehicle for any malfunction. After this brief flash, the light should remain off while driving while no problems are detected. If so, you'll be happy to know that your vehicle is equipped with an early warning system that could save you time, money and fuel, as well as help protect the environment!
Improved unit capacity
WHAT IS THE OBD PORT?
The OBD (On-Board Diagnostics) port is basically a socket on the vehicle that can be connected to which has a self-diagnostic and reporting capability. The OBD port allows the vehicle owner or the vehicle technician to have access to information related to the health status of various vehicle subsystems.
WHAT EXACTLY DO YOU DO WITH THE PORT OBD?
Here at Quantum Tuning we employ trained OBD technicians. We have a modern repair shop and we also have an OBD scan tool (a small, hand-held scanning device) to diagnose the cause of your vehicle's problem. These technicians will have the right tools and will know better how to diagnose your vehicle
The technician will connect the scan tool to your vehicle's computer (usually through a connector under the dashboard) and download information that can identify the problem. The technician can repair the vehicle based on the manufacturer's recommendations. OBD really helps repair technicians to do their job more quickly and reliably, which helps avoid unnecessary repairs and trips back to the shop.
WHAT DO YOU CURRENTLY MODIFY IN MY VEHICLE?
We do not change any hardware in your vehicle, we only modify the operation parameters in the program or map of the ECU. In many cases, the map stored in the ECU's processor can be accessed through the vehicle's on-board diagnostic (OBD) port, which is normally located under the dashboard. On some newer models the ECU will have to be removed from the vehicle and the cover open, our technicians will then use the specialist's tools to read the original map directly from the process chip.
The technician will then load the original map to our map writing team that will adjust the parameters to maximize performance, fuel economy or a ready mix of both. Depending on the type of vehicle and ECU, the chip adjustment process can take less than an hour and if at any time you wish to return the ECU of your vehicle to its original default configuration, this can be done easily and free of charge since we always have a copy of the original software as a backup copy.
