5. OBD
Since 1994-1996, most new cars have been tted with a 16-pin diagnostic socket. According to the
standard, the socket must be located within a radius of one metre from the driver’s seat, usually under
or close to the dashboard.
OBD (On-Board Diagnostics) is a diagnostic function built into the vehicle for reading fault codes and
parameters from relevant systems (engine, ABS, SRS, ACC, etc.). To start OBD communication, click
OBD in the main menu.
After each menu choice there are the options “Next” (arrow to the right) and “Back” (arrow to the left).
Step 1: Choose the vehicle Manufacturer, then

6. eOBD
Note: Standard eOBD is supported on petrol
vehicles from 2001 and diesel vehicles from
eOBD is a protocol used throughout the European union. The main function of the system is to ensure
that vehicles in use on the roads are not producing polluting levels of exhaust gases. All petrol engine
vehicles sold since January 2001 must conform to this regulation. A similar code for Diesel and L.P.G.
vehicles was introduced in 2004.
The eOBD legislation relates only to the engine. All other parameters eg. A.C, SRS Airbag, A.B.S. etc.
are controlled by the OBD protocol.
The16 pin socket is standard and must be located within 1 Meter of the center of the steering wheel.
The following functions are available via eOBD: Read and erase fault codes, Information, Reading live
data, Oxygen sensor information, non continuous test info and control of diagnostic systems.
The following information is displayed when you
click on the button.
Control units available.
All the units supporting eOBD are displayed in the list.
The list shows the status of each parameter. It will also show the MIL status, the number of DTC’s
recorded and the standard being used.
Tests available.
The tests available vary with the manufacturer, those available in this example can be seen from the
list below:
- Lighting System.
- Fuel System.
- Tests on electrical components.
- Catalyst.
- Preheating of catalyst.
- Secondary air system.
- Air Conditioning
- Oxygen Sensor
- Heating of the oxygen sensor.
- EGR Valve.
Reading fault codes.
Only, the permanent or intermittent eOBD error
codes are displayed on the PDA. The number of the ECU, the
fault code and its definition will be displayed .
Permanent fault code. This is a fault code the ECU classes as a
permanent fault.
Intermittent fault code. This is a fault code that occurs
intermittently. The ECU logs the fault and if it keeps reoccurring over a measured period of time then the ECU will
change its status to a permanent fault.
Erasing fault codes.
With this function, it is possible to erase a fault code. To
remove the fault, press the dustbin icon. If the erase function
fails, a message will be displayed showing the fault codes
that have not been erased.
Real time data.
This function allows the display of the data in real
time measured by the selected ECU. To select the value to be
measured in the list, Click on it with the pen. The user can
select several items at the same time. To remove a value,
from the lower window, click on it with the pen.
Freeze frame data.
This function allows the display of the data in real time
measured by the selected ECU. The value is illustrated along
with its PID reference, its name, the measured value, its unit
e.g. degrees and the manufacturers value for comparison.
Use the arrows to navigate between screens.
Oxygen Sensors
This function enables you to obtain the values of
each lambda. Probe. The EOBD functions with two probes,
per and post catalyst, for the control of pollution in the
exhaust gas. Each probe can be selected and controlled
On some vehicles the oxygen sensor information can be
found under “non-continuous tests”
Non continuous tests.
The values are read automatically and they indicate the TID
and the CID values which are defined by the manufacturer.
The column "Result" indicates if the test is OK or not. The
actual values along with the min and max values are
indicated in the display.
Vehicles using can protocol also display oxygen sensor info.
in this section.
Control of system.
The list of the tests is accessible through the ECU. The tests are
displayed with a description, TID reference and an actual value.
