OBD II
On-board diagnostics version II (OBD II) is a system that the Society of
Automotive Engineers (SAE) developed to standardize automotive
electronic diagnosis.
Beginning in 1996, most new vehicles sold in the United States were
fully OBD II compliant.
✓
Technicians can now use the same tool to test any OBD II
compliant vehicle without special adapters. SAE established
guidelines that provide:
❒ A universal connector, called the DLC, with dedicated pin
❒
❒
❒
❒
❒
❒
assignments.
A standard location for the DLC, visible under the dash on driver’s
side.
A standard list of diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) used by all
manufacturers.
A standard list of parameter identification (PID) data used by all
manufacturers.
Ability for vehicle systems to record operating conditions when a
fault occurs.
Expanded diagnostic capabilities that records a code whenever a
condition occurs that affects vehicle emissions.
Ability to clear stored codes from the vehicle’s memory with a
Scan Tool.

SAE Publications

SAE has published hundreds of pages of text defining a standard
communication protocol that establishes hardware, software, and
circuit parameters of OBD II systems. Unfortunately, vehicle
manufacturers have different interpretations of this standard
communications protocol. As a result, the generic OBD II
communications scheme varies, depending on the vehicle. SAE
publishes recommendations, not laws, but the Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA) and California Air Resources Board (CARB)
made many of SAE’s recommendations legal requirements that vehicle
manufacturers were required to phase in over a three-year period.
Beginning in 1994, vehicles with a new engine management computer
( about 10% of each manufacturers fleet ) were supposed to comply
with OBD II standards. For 1995, OBD II systems were to appear on
about 40% of the new vehicles sold in the United States. Some of the
1994-1995 OBD II systems were not fully compliant, so the Government
granted waivers to give manufacturers time to fine-tune their systems.
Beginning in 1996, most of the new vehicles sold in the United States
were fully OBD II compliant.

Data Link Connector (DLC)
The data link connector (DLC) allows the Scan Tool to communicate
with the vehicle’s computer(s).
Beginning in 1996, vehicles sold in the United States use the J1962
(OBD II) DLC, a term taken from a physical and electrical specification
number assigned by the SAE (J1962). The DLC should be located
under the dashboard on the driver’s side of the vehicle. If the DLC is not
located under the dashboard as stated, a decal describing its location
should be attached to the dashboard in the area the DLC should have
been located.

OBD II Diagnostic Trouble Codes
(DTCs)
✓
J2012 and ISO 15031-6 are standards for all DTCs, established by
the SAE, International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and
other governing bodies.
❒ Codes and definitions assigned by these specifications are
known as Generic OBD II codes.
❒ OBD II requires compliance to these standards for all cars, light
trucks, APVs, MPVs, and SUVs sold in the United States.
❒ Codes not reserved by the SAE are reserved for the
manufacturer and referred to as Manufacturer Specific Codes.

✓
DTCs are used to help determine the cause of a problem or
problems with a vehicle.
❒ DTCs consist of a five-digit alphanumeric code.
❒ The DTCs format and general code types are shown below.

Using The Scan Tool
Code Connect Feature
Code Connect is an experience-based database derived from over 3.6
million phone calls from technicians seeking assistance diagnosing
repair problems on their vehicles. Code Connect brings the technology
of professional technicians to a DIY scan tool. Don’t waste time trying
to find the answer. With the information Code Connect offers, it takes
vehicle repairs to the next level. Since you now know the most probable
fix for your problem, you can decide if you want to tackle the repair
yourself, or bring the vehicle to a local automotive repair facility.
IMPORTANT In order for Code Connect to work, you must select your
specific vehicle during vehicle selection. A Global OBD II
vehicle selection will not provide any Code Connect
information. The power of Code Connect is that repair
information is vehicle and trouble code specific and is
based on the largest experience-based database available.
3
Code Connect information is available whenever the Code Connect
icon is visible on the display. The Code Connect icon has the potential
of being displayed while trouble codes are being displayed from Read
Codes or while Viewing Freeze Frame data. Also, when you print codes
to your PC, the Code Connect information, if available, will also be
printed.
✓
Code Connect information is currently only available in English, so
if your tool is set to Spanish or French, don’t be alarmed if your DTC
text is in one language and your Code Connect information is
shown in English.

I/M Monitors (Emissions)
The I/M Monitors (Inspection / Maintenance) function is used to view
a snapshot of the operations for the emission system on OBD II
vehicles.
✓
✓
✓
44
I/M Monitors is a very useful function. To guarantee no faults exist
make sure all monitors are ok or n/a and no DTC’s exist.
Refer to the vehicles service manual for the drive cycle operation.
During normal driving conditions, the vehicle’s computer scans the
emission system. After a specific amount of drive time (each monitor
has specific driving conditions and time required), the computer’s
monitors decide if the vehicles emission system is working correctly
or not as well as detecting out of range values. When the monitor’s
status is:
• ok - vehicle was driven enough to complete the monitor.
• inc (Incomplete) - vehicle was not driven enough to complete the
monitor.
• n/a (Not Applicable)- vehicle does not support that monitor.
✓
✓
✓
✓
Depending on vehicle, disconnecting or a discharged battery may
erase DTCs and clear monitor status.
Monitors may be cleared by:
❒ Erasing codes
❒ Vehicle control modules losing powerk
I/M Monitors can be done key on engine running (KOER) or key on
engine off (KOEO).
Extreme weather and/or road conditions can prevent a monitor from
running. Also, some monitors may require a cold start to complete.

✓
The Read Codes function allows the Scan Tool to read the DTCs from
the vehicle’s control modules. DTCs are used to help determine the
cause of a problem or problems with a vehicle. These codes cause the
control module to illuminate the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL)
when emission-related or driveability fault occurs. MIL is also known
as service engine soon or check engine lamp.
Read Codes can be done with the key on engine off (KOEO) or with
the key on engine running (KOER).

DTC Type
Description
History
Intermittent codes placed in the vehicle’s memory when the trouble originally occurred, and will remain there even if the trouble has been corrected. If no trouble after 50 engine warm-up cycles, the DTC will be
erased.
Current
Codes transmitted through the PCMs data stream when a trouble condition is active and cannot be erased. The problem must be repaired to
remove the DTC.
Intermittent
Indicates the current code has been set at least once but possibly not
enough to cause a history code to be stored.
MIL
Indicates that this DTC has turned on the MIL light.
Pending
Pending codes are also referred to as continuous monitor or maturing
codes. An intermittent fault causes the control module to store a code in
memory. If the fault does not occur within a certain number of warm-up
cycles (depending on vehicle), the code clears from memory. If fault
occurs a specific number of times, the code matures into a DTC and the
MIL illuminates or blinks. This function can be used with KOEO or
KOER.
Non-MIL
DTC that is not emission-related and did not turn on the MIL light.

Refer to the vehicle service manual for the drive cycle operation.
Drive Cycle Monitor can be used if you want to drive the vehicle until
all of the monitors are OK.
During normal driving conditions, the vehicle computer scans the
emission system. After a specific amount of drive time (each monitor
has specific driving conditions and time requirements), the
computer’s monitors will decide if the vehicle emissions system is
working correctly or not as well as detecting out a range of values.
When the monitor’s status is:
• “ok” - vehicle has been driven enough for function.
• “inc” (Incomplete) - vehicle was not driven enough to complete all of
the monitors.
• “n/a” (Not Applicable) - vehicle does not support that monitor.

O2 Monitor Tests
OBD II regulations require applicable vehicles monitor and test oxygen
(O2) sensors to determine problems related to fuel and emissions. The
O2 Monitor Tests allows retrieval of completed O2 sensors monitor
test results.
✓
✓
✓
The O2 Monitor Tests is not an on-demand test. O2 sensors are
not tested when selected via the menu. O2 sensors are tested when
engine operating conditions are within specified limits.
If the vehicle communicates using a controller area network (CAN),
O2 monitor tests are not supported by vehicle. A message is
displayed. See “Diagnostic Monitor Tests” on page 4-33 to see O2
monitor data.
O2 sensors are located before (upstream) and after (downstream)
catalyst(s). Sensors are named (xy) for their position to both cylinder
banks and catalysts.
❒ The O2 sensor for cylinder bank 1 has prefix 1y while O2 sensor
for cylinder bank 2 has prefix 2y.
❒ The O2 sensor upstream of catalyst (closest to engine) has suffix
x1 while O2 sensor downstream of catalyst has suffix x2. If
vehicle contains more catalysts, O2 sensor downstream of
second catalyst has suffix x3 and O2 sensor downstream of next
catalyst has suffix x4.
❒ For example, O2S21 is upstream O2 sensor for cylinder bank 2.
