The objective is:

❒ to keep system efficiency under control;
❒ warn when a fault causes emission levels to increase;
❒ warn of the need to replace deteriorated components.

The system has a diagnostic connector that can be interfaced with appropriate tools, which makes it possible to read the error codes stored in the control unit, together with a series of specific parameters for engine operation and diagnosis. This check can also be performed by traffic controller agents.
