What is DTC(Diagnostic Trouble Code)?

In the ’80s, It’s an impossible thing to get the information about malfunctioned unit if a problem is detected in your car and because of this, it was very tough to fix the malfunctioning unit in the car.

But As automobile engineering grows by time, they(ISO, Manufacturer) define the range of generic and manufacturer specific trouble codes for each automobile unit(Power Train, Chassis, body and network unit) and these trouble codes are known as diagnostic trouble codes(DTC).

Every Vehicle Manufacture provides an OBD Connector which is a digital communication medium through which anyone whether he is car owner or repair technician, can read the real-time data of his car and get the information(DTCs) about the malfunctioned unit and repair it accordingly.
