1 General Information
On-Board Diagnostics (OBD) II
The first generation of On-Board Diagnostics (called OBD I) was developed
by the California Air Resources Board (ARB) and implemented in 1988 to
monitor some of the emission control components on vehicles. As
technology evolved and the desire to improve the On-Board Diagnostic
system increased, a new generation of On-Board Diagnostic system was
developed. This second generation of On-Board Diagnostic regulations is
called "OBD II".
The OBD II system is designed to monitor emission control systems and
key engine components by performing either continuous or periodic tests of
specific components and vehicle conditions. When a problem is detected,
the OBD II system turns on a warning lamp (MIL) on the vehicle instrument
panel to alert the driver typically by the phrase of “Check Engine” or
“Service Engine Soon”. The system will also store important information
about the detected malfunction so that a technician can accurately find and
fix the problem. Here below follow three pieces of such valuable
information:
1)
Whether the Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) is commanded ‘on’ or
‘off’;
2)
Which, if any, Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) are stored;
3)
Readiness Monitor status.
Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs)
OBD II Diagnostic Trouble Codes are codes that are stored by the on-board
computer diagnostic system in response to a problem found in the vehicle.
These codes identify a particular problem area and are intended to provide
you with a guide as to where a fault might be occurring within a vehicle.
OBD II Diagnostic Trouble Codes consists of a five-digit alphanumeric
code. The first character, a letter, identifies which control system sets the
code. The other four characters, all numbers, provide additional information
on where the DTC originated and the operating conditions that caused it to
set. Here below is an example to illustrate the structure of the digits:
1
Figure 1-1
Location of the Data Link Connector (DLC)
The DLC (Data Link Connector or Diagnostic Link Connector) is the
standardized 16-cavity connector where diagnostic scan tools interface with
the vehicle's on-board computer. The DLC is usually located 12 inches from
the center of the instrument panel (dash), under or around the driver’s side
for most vehicles. If Data Link Connector is not located under dashboard, a
label should be there telling location. For some Asian and European
vehicles, the DLC is located behind the ashtray and the ashtray must be
removed to access the connector. If the DLC cannot be found, refer to the
vehicle’s service manual for the location.
Figure 1-2

OBD II Readiness Monitors
An important part of a vehicle’s OBD II system is the Readiness Monitors,
which are indicators used to find out if all of the emissions components
have been evaluated by the OBD II system. They are running periodic tests
on specific systems and components to ensure that they are performing
within allowable limits.
Currently, there are eleven OBD II Readiness Monitors (or I/M Monitors)
defined by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Not all
monitors are supported by all vehicles and the exact number of monitors in
any vehicle depends on the motor vehicle manufacturer’s emissions control
strategy.
Continuous Monitors – some of the vehicle components or systems are
continuously tested by the vehicle’s OBD II system, while others are tested
only under specific vehicle operating conditions. The continuously
monitored components listed below are always ready:
1)
Misfire
2)
Fuel System
3)
Comprehensive Components (CCM)
Once the vehicle is running, the OBD II system is continuously checking the
above components, monitoring key engine sensors, watching for engine
misfire, and monitoring fuel demands.
Non-Continuous Monitors – unlike the continuous monitors, many
emissions and engine system components require the vehicle to be
operated under specific conditions before the monitor is ready. These
monitors are termed non-continuous monitors. For different ignition type
engines, the available monitors are different too.
The following monitors are to be used for spark ignition engines only:
1)
EGR System
2)
O2 Sensors
3)
Catalyst
4)
Evaporative System
5)
O2 Sensor Heater
6)
Secondary Air
7)
Heated Catalyst
3
The following monitors are to be used for compression ignition engines
only:
1)
EGR System
2)
NMHC Catalyst
3)
NOx Aftertreatment
4)
Boost Pressure System
5)
Exhaust Gas Sensor
6)
PM Filter
OBD II Monitor Readiness Status
OBD II systems must indicate whether or not the vehicle’s PCM’s monitor
system has completed testing on each component. Components that have
been tested will be reported as “Ready”, or “Complete”, meaning they have
been tested by the OBD II system. The purpose of recording readiness
status is to allow inspectors to determine if the vehicle’s OBD II system has
tested all the components and/or systems.
The power-train control module (PCM) sets a monitor to “Ready” or
“Complete” after an appropriate drive cycle has been performed. The drive
cycle that enables a monitor and sets readiness codes to “Ready” varies for
each individual monitor. Once a monitor is set as “Ready” or “Complete”, it
will remain in this state. A number of factors, including erasing of diagnostic
trouble codes (DTCs) with a scan tool or a disconnected battery, can result
in Readiness Monitors being set to “Not Ready”. Since the three continuous
monitors are constantly evaluating, they will be reported as “Ready” all of
the time. If testing of a particular supported non-continuous monitor has not
been completed, the monitor status will be reported as “Not Complete” or
“Not Ready.”
In order for the OBD monitor system to become ready, the vehicle should
be driven under a variety of normal operating conditions. These operating
conditions may include a mix of highway driving and stop and go, city type
driving, and at least one overnight-off period. For specific information on
getting your vehicle’s OBD monitor system ready, please consult your
vehicle owner’s manual.

OBD II Definitions
Powertrain Control Module (PCM) – OBD II terminology for the on-board
computer that controls engine and drive train.
Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) – Malfunction Indicator Light (Service
Engine Soon, Check Engine) is a term used for the light on the instrument
panel. It is to alert the driver and/or the repair technician that there is a
problem with one or more of vehicle's systems and may cause emissions to
exceed federal standards. If the MIL illuminates with a steady light, it
indicates that a problem has been detected and the vehicle should be
serviced as soon as possible. Under certain conditions, the dashboard light
will blink or flash. This indicates a severe problem and flashing is intended
to discourage vehicle operation. The vehicle onboard diagnostic system
cannot turn the MIL off until necessary repairs are completed or the
condition no longer exists.
DTC – Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) that identifies which section of the
emission control system has malfunctioned.
Enabling Criteria – also termed Enabling Conditions. They are the
vehicle-specific events or conditions that must occur within the engine
before the various monitors will set, or run. Some monitors require the
vehicle to follow a prescribed “drive cycle” routine as part of the enabling
criteria. Drive cycles vary among vehicles and for each monitor in any
particular vehicle.
OBD II Drive Cycle – a specific mode of vehicle operation that provides
conditions required to set all the readiness monitors applicable to the
vehicle to the “Ready” condition. The purpose of completing an OBD II drive
cycle is to force the vehicle to run its onboard diagnostics. Some form of a
drive cycle needs to be performed after DTCs have been erased from the
PCM’s memory or after the battery has been disconnected. Running
through a vehicle’s complete drive cycle will “set” the readiness monitors so
that future faults can be detected. Drive cycles vary depending on the
vehicle and the monitor that needs to be reset. For vehicle specific drive
cycle, consult the vehicle’s Owner’s Manual.
Freeze Frame Data – when an emission related fault occurs, the OBD II
system not only sets a code but also records a snapshot of the vehicle
operating parameters to help in identifying the problem. This set of values is
referred to as Freeze Frame Data and may include important engine
5
parameters such as engine RPM, vehicle speed, air flow, engine load, fuel
pressure, fuel trim value, engine coolant temperature, ignition timing
advance, or closed loop status.
OBD II Modes of Operation
Here is a basic introduction to the OBD II communication protocol.
Mode byte: The first byte in the stream is the mode number. There are 9
modes for diagnostic requests, so this first byte is from 1 to 9. The first byte
in the response data bytes is this same number plus 64. For example, a
mode 1 request would have the first data byte = 1, and the response would
have the first data byte = 65. Here is a brief description of the modes:
Mode $01 – identifies the Powertrain information and shows current
data available to the scan tool. This data includes: DTCs set, status of
on-board tests and vehicle data such as engine RPM, temperatures,
ignition advance, speed, air flow rates, and closed loop status for fuel
system.
Mode $02 – displays Freeze Frame data. Same data as in mode 1, but it
was captured and stored when a malfunction occurred and a DTC was set.
Some of the PIDs for mode one are not implemented in this mode.
Mode $03 – displays the type of powertrain or emission related DTCs
stored by a 5 digit code identifying the faults. There may be more than
one response message if there are more trouble codes than will fit in the
data bytes of the response message, or if there are more than one ECU
computer responding.
Mode $04 – used to clear DTCs and Freeze Frame data. This clears all
diagnostic trouble codes that may be set including freeze frame data and
readiness monitors.
Mode $05 – displays oxygen sensor test results. This mode displays the
oxygen sensor monitor screen and the test results gathered about the
oxygen sensor.
There are ten numbers available for diagnostics:
1.
$01 Rich-to-Lean O2 sensor threshold voltage
2.
$02 Lean-to-Rich O2 sensor threshold voltage
3.
$03 Low sensor voltage threshold for switch time measurement
6
4.
$04 High sensor voltage threshold for switch time measurement
5.
$05 Rich-to-Lean switch time in ms
6.
$06 Lean-to Rich switch time in ms
7.
$07 Minimum voltage for test
8.
$08 Maximum voltage for test
9.
$09 Time between voltage transitions in ms
Mode $06 – Non-Continuously Monitored Systems test results. There
are typically a minimum value, a maximum value, and a current value for
each non-continuous monitor. This data is optional, and it is defined by a
given vehicle make if it’s used.
Mode $07 – a request for DTCs (pending) from Continuously Monitored
Systems after a single driving cycle has been performed to determine if
repair has fixed a problem. This is used by service technicians to verify
repair was performed properly and after clearing diagnostic trouble codes.
Mode $08 – this Special Control Mode requests control of the on-board
system, test, or component bi-directionally (where applicable). This mode is
manufacturer specific.

Vehicle Coverage
The MaxiLink ML619 OBDII/EOBD Scanner is specially designed to work
with all OBD II compliant vehicles, including those equipped with the
Control Area Network (CAN) protocol. The EPA requires all domestic, Asian
and European vehicles, 1996 and newer (including light trucks), sold in the
United States must be OBD II compliant.
A small number of 1994 and 1995 model year gasoline vehicles are OBD II
compliant. To verify if a 1994 or 1995 vehicle is OBD II compliant, check the
Vehicle Emissions Control Information (VECI) Label which is located under
the hood or by the radiator of most vehicles. If the vehicle is OBD II
compliant, the label will designate “OBD II Certified”. Additionally,
14
Government regulations mandate that all OBD II compliant vehicles must
have a “common” sixteen-pin Data Link Connector (DLC).
For your vehicle to be OBD II compliant it must have a 16-pin DLC (Data
Link Connector) under the dash and the Vehicle Emission Control
Information Label must state that the vehicle is OBD II compliant.
In addition to OBD II diagnosis, the ML619 scan tool also supports the ABS
and airbag diagnostic functions, dealing with more than 50 US, Asian and
European vehicles, including Acura, Audi, Bentley, Benz, BMW, Bugatti,
Chrysler, Ford, EU Ford, GM, Honda, Hyundai, Infiniti, Isuzu, Jaguar, Kia,
Land Rover, Lexus, Maybach, Mazda, Mini, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Opel,
Porsche, Saab, Scion, Seat, Skoda, Smart, Sprinter, Suzuki, Toyota,
Vauxhall, Volvo, VW, Renault, Peugeot, Lancia, Fiat, Dacia, Citroen, Alfa,
Abarth.
More vehicle supports will come out with new updates released.

Read Codes
 The Read Codes function can be performed with the key on, engine off
(KOEO) or with the key on, engine running (KOER).
 Stored Codes are also known as “hard codes”, which are fault codes,
or trouble codes that have been stored in the vehicle computer memory
because the faults have reoccurred for more than a specified amount
of key-cycles. These codes will cause the control module to illuminate
the malfunction indicator light (MIL) when emission-related faults
occur.
 Pending Codes are also referred to as “maturing codes” or “continuous
monitor codes”. They indicate problems that the control module has
detected during the current or last driving cycle but are not as yet
considered serious. Pending Codes will not cause a malfunction
indicator light (MIL). If the fault does not occur within a certain number
of warm-up cycles, the code clears from memory.
 Permanent Codes are DTCs that are "confirmed" and are retained in
the non-volatile memory of the vehicle’s computer until the appropriate
monitor for each DTC has determined that the malfunction is no longer
present and is not causing the MIL. Permanent DTCs are stored in
non-volatile memory and can not be erased by any diagnostics service
or by disconnecting power to ECU.
1)
Use UP/DOWN scroll button to select Read Codes from Diagnostic
Menu and press OK button.

Retrieve I/M Readiness Status
I/M Readiness function is used to check the operations of the Emission
System on OBD2 compliant vehicles. It is an excellent function to use prior
to having a vehicle inspected for state emissions compliance.
CAUTION: By clearing trouble codes you also clear the readiness status for
the individual emission system readiness tests. In order to reset these
monitors, the vehicle must be driven through a complete drive cycle with no
trouble codes in memory. Amount of time needed for reset vary be vehicle.
Some latest vehicle models may support two types of I/M Readiness tests:
A.
Since DTCs Cleared – indicates status of the monitors since the DTCs
are erased.
B. This Drive Cycle – indicates status of monitors since the beginning of
the current drive cycle.
An I/M Readiness Status result of “NO” does not necessarily indicate that
the vehicle being tested will fail the state I/M inspection. For some states,
one or more such monitors may be allowed to be “Not Ready” to pass the
emissions inspection.
Press the One-Click I/M Readiness Key, to retrieve I/M readiness status.
The screen will show as below. According to different readiness status, the
color LEDs will illuminate and different audio tones will be heard.
OK – indicates that a particular monitor being checked has completed

5 AbsSrs Testing
ABS – Anti-lock Braking System in most vehicles is made up of an
electronic hydraulic pump of two, three or most commonly four Wheel
Speed Sensors (WSS), a G-force sensor, a Vehicle Speed Sensor and an
ABS Control Module (EBCM). The EBCM is constantly monitoring the WSS,
the Vehicle Speed Sensor, and the G-sensor.
Diagnosing an ABS problem should always start with a visual inspection of
all brake components, then you will need to retrieve ABS DTCs to tell you
where the problem is.
SRS – Supplemental Restraint System is made up of Impact Sensors, a
Control Module, and Airbags. When the impact sensors detect a collision
they send an extremely fast signal to the control module, which relays that
signal to the airbags, deploying them to help prevent vehicle occupants
from hitting interior objects such as steering wheels, dashboards, and the
like. When the control module detects a problem with the airbags or
sensors the Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) will turn on.
The ABS/SRS diagnostic function is used to retrieve and clear codes from
the vehicle’s ABS/SRS systems. It also provides the definition of each code
to help diagnose problem areas within the systems that may cause the
Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) to turn on.
NOTE
1. Autel accepts no responsibility for any accident or injury arising from
servicing the ABS/SRS systems. When interpreting DTCs retrieved
from the vehicle, always follow the manufacturer’s recommendation for
repair.
2.
All software screens shown in this manual are examples, actual test
screens may vary for each vehicle being tested. Observe the menu
