As well as ECU vehicle tuning and engine remapping services, VIEZU can offer ECU P-Code delete services, fault code delete services and DTC delete services. This means VIEZU can permanently remove and delete persistent and troubling fault codes from within an engine ECU software.
Vehicle fault codes or vehicle P codes are also known as Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC), these are codes registered and data logged by the vehicle’s ecu to indicate there is an issue with the engine management system. The purpose of a fault code is to help identify the area and location of the issue, hence helping repair technicians trace and fix an issue.
DTC and fault codes are made up of one letter and 4 numbers that allow identification of an error and understand the reasons of its occurrence. The first character is a letter, typically a P for the engine management system, and the 4 remaining characters consist of numbers that provide a component or type of issue identified.
Some owners may want to remove certain functions from the engine and engine management system, this can include functions and components such as swirl flaps delete, EGR delete, start stop, etc, when this is done, the engine management system will normally raise a Fault Code or P Code, leading to the “check engine light” being illuminated – VIEZU can disable this function and engine fault code, and hence prevent the engine dropping into “limp home” mode.
From time to time all vehicles will develop a fault code and a check engine light issue, normally these issues are quickly traced and a repair is undertaken, but occasionally vehicles can develop a “ghost fault code” a fault code or P code that may initially clear, but soon comes back to haunt the owner, randomly coming on for no reason and one which becomes almost impossible to trace and repair.
If you are being haunted by a ghost fault code that will just not clear – VIEZU can help. With full access to the engines ECU and software, VIEZU can track and trace the code within the ecu and remove it permanently, leaving all other functions intact and working.
VIEZU can support both retail customers with removing troublesome fault codes. And if you are in the trade and regularly require removing codes of this nature. VIEZU can supply tools, software and training so that you can quickly and easily remove fault codes permanently.
