DEKRA ECU Diagnostic System Check

This check is performed using a diagnostic software developed by DEKRA itself and exclusively used by them. It features cutting-edge technology not available in the market. It is updated for the latest quarter’s production cars, automatically recognizes vehicles through their VIN, and is considered the most accurate worldwide for mileage tampering detection in vehicles.

Drawing on DEKRA’s experience from inspecting hundreds of millions of vehicles, this diagnostic tool delves into as many sub-systems (ECUs) and vehicle sensors as possible, comparing the usage and wear of each different component as recorded by the sensor to the expected wear based on the mileage displayed.

In addition to mileage verification, it provides a comprehensive report of all the faults a vehicle may have developed since the day it was manufactured. Its results are decrypted and unalterable, thus ensuring reliability.

Target audience:

  • Individuals or dealers of high-quality used cars who want to visibly demonstrate the vehicles’ quality to potential buyers, associating them with the prestige of a global company.
  • Potential buyers who want to inspect the vehicle’s ECU, so as to determine if there are any serious faults or signs of mileage tampering.
