ELECTRONIC EMISSION CONTROL DIAGNOSES ITS OWN PROBLEMS

The use of electronic emissions control systems (ECS) has prompted engineers at General Motors Corp. to design a method of self-diagnosing system failures. The complexity of the ECS requires that self-diagnosis be included in the system. An instrument panel indicator light alerts the driver that an ECS failure has occurred and that service is required. The function of the ECS is to optimize emissions control and fuel efficiency while maintaining driveability.
