2. General Information
2.1 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.
2.2 Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs)
OBD II Diagnostic Trouble Codes are codes that are stored by the onboard 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 consist of a fivedigit 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:

2.3 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.

2.4 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
5
operated under specific conditions before the monitor is ready. These
monitors are termed non-continuous monitors and are listed below:
1) EGR System
2) O2 Sensors
3) Catalyst
4) Evaporative System
5) O2 Sensor Heater
6) Secondary air
7) Heated Catalyst
8) A/C system
2.5 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 powertrain 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.

2.6 OBD II Definitions
Powertrain Control Module (PCM) -- OBD II terminology for the onboard 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 can not turn the MIL off until the necessary
repairs are completed or the condition no longer exists.
DTC -- Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC) that identify 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.
7
Freeze Frame Data -- When an emissions 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 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.

3.9 Vehicle Coverage
The Geniscan OBD II scan tool is specially designed to work with all
OBD II compliant vehicles, including those equipped with the nextgeneration protocol -- Control Area Network (CAN). It is required by
EPA that all 1996 and newer vehicles (cars and light trucks) sold in the
United States must be OBD II compliant and this includes all Domestic,
Asian and European vehicles.
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, 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.

4.4 Retrieving I/M Readiness Status
Important: 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 compliance to a
state emissions program.
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
22
states, one or more such monitors may be allowed to be “Not Ready” to
pass the emissions inspection.
z “Y” -- All monitors supported on the vehicle have completed their
diagnostic testing and the MIL light is not on.
z “N” -- At least one monitor supported on the vehicle has not
completed its diagnostic testing, and (or) the “Check Engine” (MIL)
light is on.
z “ok” -- Indicates that a particular monitor being checked has
completed its diagnostic testing.
z “inc” -- Indicates that a particular monitor being checked has not
completed its diagnostic testing.
z “n/a” -- The monitor is not supported on that vehicle.
