The article presents the authors’ methodology for studying technical ignition causes of cars, with the establishment of the initial fire based on the signs and nature of temperature damage. What is more, subsequent development of the main scenario of fire occurrence is introduced. Modern control system is becoming larger and more complicated day by day and probability of system outage increases with it, so people urgently need to personalize the system of failure diagnostics to conduct real-time monitoring and malfunction diagnosis in production system and take necessary steps to improve its overall reliability and maintainability. According to the presented method of fire research, determination of the ignition causes is carried out by the method of successive elimination. Based on the functional features of the researchable object (a motor vehicle), established by expertise as an initial fire, the ignition of flammable liquid because of leakage from the fuel system, thermal development of the processes accompanying the emergency operation mode of the power grid could be possible ignition causes of the car. The authors pay special attention to the fire hazard of the electric system of a vehicle, which is determined by the fact that its individual elements can serve as a source of burning in case of an emergency in some functional chain. Establishment of initial fire causes increased complexity in connection with relatively small size of cars (especially light cars), fleetness of fires in vehicles and in case of failure to take recovery measures for burning in the initial stage and its development for the entire volume of the car. The results of applying the methodology were positively evaluated by independent expert companies.
