The driver needs to know when a car is broken down. Failure message data is part of the diagnostics system and communicates with all modules linked in the vehicle. As there are many different ways a vehicle can fail. Understanding what is wrong helps reduce downtime for the vehicle - especially useful when operating a fleet.
Full Data Catalog
Our data catalog on Airtable contains technical information specific to each data category, including its properties and their production availability.
Collecting the right information will determine what failure message will be displayed. Failure message data includes the ID code of the failure, the message type of the failure and what caused the failures, including the description.
A vehicle can fail in many ways. For instance, when fuel pressure is too low, the engine will not function properly. A failure message will display on the driver dashboard or be sent remotely to fleet operators indicating the fault. Fuel pressure sensors pick up this information which causes a domino effect on the rest of the engine sensors that pick up incorrect signals.
The electrical system in modern vehicles is so large, any incorrect voltage readings may indicate a fault. This is where a failure message appears based on the circuit causing the incorrect voltage. Pointing straight to where a technician needs to look to fix the issue.
Getting to the root of the failure message quickly reduces vehicle turnaround time. Having a minimal effect on productivity within a business's fleet is ideal, which is where High Mobility’s advanced API comes in. Taking vehicle data to the next level with remote access to hundreds of data points using one central operation.
