Fraud investigation

As part of the system check, DEKRA ECU diagnostics (Control unit diagnostics) is a service in which electronic components of a vehicle are read out. While faults in engine or exhaust gas-relevant components are displayed via a pilot light in the cockpit, faults in the comfort and (active) safety equipment often go unnoticed. In the safety and comfort relevant diagnosis in particular ECUs of this type are read.

In further steps, a plausibility check is carried out with the control unit manipulation diagnosis. Here deposited mileage and vehicle identification numbers (VIN) of the individual ECUs are compared with each other. Deficits give indications of manipulated odometer readings or exchanged ECUs.

If errors or indications of ECU manipulation are detected further, in-depth examinations - e.g. in the form of an analytical opinion or required by a workshop, this is not content of this service.
