German term or phrase: ausleiten
It is used in the context of a vehicle being checked. Does it mean to 'pull over'?

English translation:reroute
Explanation:
leiten = route
ausleiten = reroute?

If, as you say, it's about checking a vehicle, then "reroute" may be what you are looking for.

Please check the site below to decide! for example:
2.) Reroute the open transmission fluid cooler line to an empty container (eg gallon milk plastic jug) where you can determine how much fluid is coming out.

Good luck!

Explanation:
I found only one reference in the web, being an accident report:

'Die Autobahnpolizei musste die Fahrbahn Richtung Basel voll sperren und den Verkehr bei Bruchsal ausleiten.'

to pull over for a vehicle check = für eine Verkehrskontrolle anhalten.

Maybe this car would have hindered the traffic by pulling over and had to be redirected?

Trying to help, regards
