Your ECU Explained

Did you know there’s a computer inside your car?
All modern vehicles are fitted with an engine control unit or ECU (also known as an engine control module or ECM) - a on-board digital ‘brain’ which keeps tabs on all the vehicle’s various systems and components.

Your ECU can detect if there’s a serious issue with your car, and display a warning light on your dashboard to prevent a dangerous component failure. (The ECU also reports a unique error code, enabling engineers to locate the source of the problem using specialist diagnostic software.)

Fast, Reliable Vehicle DIagnostics

At New Chapel, our technicians combine state-of-the-art Bosch, Omitec and Snap-On troubleshooting equipment with over 40 years of automotive repair expertise. Whatever the issue, you can rely on us for a quick and reliable diagnosis - and with our tailored servicing and repairs, your car will be firing on all cylinders again in no time.
