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.
99 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.
17
‰‰ 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 threeyear 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.
18
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. For more information on OBD II connectors, go to http://
www.obdclearinghouse.com/oemdb.

OBD II Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs)
99 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.
99 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.

AutoID™ uses the VIN to determine the type of vehicle the tool is connected to. Vehicle manufacturers began programming the VIN into the
vehicle controller in 2000, but it was not an OBD II mandate until 2005.
Vehicles between 2000 and 2004 may or may not support AutoID™, but
vehicles after 2005 should support AutoID™. If the tool is on a vehicle

CodeConnect® Feature
CodeConnect is an experience-based database derived from over 4.7
million phone calls from technicians seeking assistance diagnosing repair
problems on their vehicles. CodeConnect brings the technology of professional technicians to a triage scan tool. Don’t waste time trying to find
the answer. With the information CodeConnect offers, it takes vehicle
repairs to the next level. The Top Report Fixes are the probable solutions
to the vehicle problem and are a shortcut for troubleshooting efforts.
In order for CodeConnect to work, you must select your
Important specific vehicle during vehicle selection. A Global OBD II
vehicle selection will not provide any CodeConnect
information. The power of CodeConnect is that repair
information is vehicle and trouble code specific and is
based on the largest experience-based database
available.
99 CodeConnect information is available whenever the CodeConnect
icon is visible on the display. The CodeConnect 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 CodeConnect
information, if available, will also be printed.
99 CodeConnect 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 CodeConnect 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.
99 I/M Monitors is a very useful function. To guarantee no faults exist
make sure all monitors are ok or n/a and no DTCs exist.
99 Refer to the vehicles service manual for the drive cycle operation.
99 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 required), the
computer monitors decide if the vehicles emission system is
working correctly or not as well as detecting out of range values.
45
When the monitor 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.
99 Depending on vehicle, disconnecting or a discharged battery may
erase DTCs and clear monitor status.
99 Monitors may be cleared by:
‰‰ Erasing codes
‰‰ Vehicle control modules losing power
99 I/M Monitors can be done key on engine running (KOER) or key
on engine off (KOEO).
99 Extreme weather and/or road conditions can prevent a monitor
from running. Also, some monitors may require a cold start to
complete.

Read Codes
99 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.
99 Read Codes can be done with the key on engine off (KOEO) or
with the key on engine running (KOER).

DTC Type - This area is reserved for providing additional information
about the DTC. Multiple DTC types may be possible for a given DTC
number. Not all vehicles support DTC types. The table on the next page
describes possible DTC types.
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.
Confirmed
Confirmed codes are reported when a component, sensor, or
other part of the vehicle is indication a malfunction is present.
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.
49
DTC Type
Description
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.
MIL Code
This DTC type also has a number with it indicating that this is
the code number turning on the MIL. Vehicle service manuals may refer to this number instead of the one listed in the
DTC number field.
Permanent
Permanent codes are a special type of confirmed code.
Permanent codes began being reported by vehicles around
2010, and therefore not supported by every vehicle. While
Confirmed Codes can be erased by the Tool, Permanent
Codes cannot. Permanent Codes are erased by the vehicle
when the vehicle has determined the fault is no longer present.
SCI Hex
On some vehicles, the code returned by the vehicle is not
known by the Scan Tool. If this happens, the Scan Tool will
display this type along with the code number.
Active
DTC that was present at the time of Scan Tool request.
Stored
DTC that was not present at the time of Scan Tool request.
Several screen examples are shown on
the following pages.
‰‰ In this example, module (MOD)
$18 is reporting the DTCs.

Drive Cycle Monitor
The Drive Cycle Monitor function is very similar to the I/M Monitors,
though the Drive Cycle Monitor is used to view REAL TIME operations
of the Emissions System on OBD II vehicles.
99 Drive Cycle Monitor continuously updates as the vehicle reports
operations of the Emission System.
Two people must be in vehicle when driving. One to
cAUTION drive and the other to operate the Scan Tool.
99 Refer to the vehicle service manual for the drive cycle operation.
99 Drive Cycle Monitor can be used if you want to drive the vehicle
until all of the monitors are OK.
61
99 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 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 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.
99 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.
99 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” in this section to see
O2 monitor data.
99 O2 sensors are located before (upstream) and after (downstream)
catalyst(s). Sensors are named (xy) for their position to both
cylinder banks and catalysts.
63
‰‰ 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.
The following O2 Sensor Tests are available:
1. Rich-to-lean sensor threshold voltage
2. Lean-to-rich sensor threshold voltage
3. Low sensor voltage for switch time
