What is ECU Testing

ECU testing is the testing of Engine Control Units for potential problems, an ECU is a type of electronic control unit which controls a car’s engine, an ECU is an extremely important piece of equipment that controls every aspect of an engine for example fuel and ignition; it makes sure that the engine is running smoothly.

ECUs work by monitoring a network of sensors, they read values from these sensors and after interpreting the data they adjust the different aspects of the engine accordingly.

The complexity of these pieces of electronic equipment makes them extremely expensive and valuable; any faults, no matter how small, could lead to severe problems with a car’s engine.

ECU testing is absolutely vital to ensure that there are no faults with the equipment and that the engine will run smoothly.

Testing your ECU with Lynx Automotive

Your ECU will be comprehensively tested under all possible driving conditions most common ECU’s will be tested using an automated test process. Other less common units will require a manual test.

If there is a fault with your ECU no matter how small we will find it, our testing procedure is a true engine simulation even atmospheric chamber conditions and engine vibration are simulated to an exact degree.
We can also offer multiple testing for very intermittent driving faults such as occasional hesitations/misfires, non starting or brief cutting out problems etc.

If you are sending an ECU in for testing please make sure the ECU is well protected in side a padded jiffy bag or postal box to ensure that no damage is caused in the postal system.

We have a massive database of 1000's of ECUs we test for both petrol and diesel applications. Some units may well be very unusual part numbers, such as imported vehicles, very early or late vehicles however all units are tested on there own individual merits.
