1. Safety Precautions and Warnings

To prevent personal injury or damage to vehicles and/or the scan

tool, read this instruction manual first and observe the following

safety precautions at a minimum whenever working on a vehicle:

 Always perform automotive testing in a safe environment.

 Wear safety eye protection that meets ANSI standards.

 Keep clothing, hair, hands, tools, test equipment, etc. away from all moving or hot engine parts.

 Operate the vehicle in a well ventilated work area: Exhaust gases are poisonous.

 Put blocks in front of the drive wheels and never leave the vehicle unattended while running tests.

 Use extreme caution when working around the ignition coil, distributor cap, ignition wires and spark plugs. These components create hazardous voltages when the engine is running.

 Put the transmission in PARK (for automatic transmission) or

NEUTRAL (for manual transmission) and make sure the parking brake is engaged.

 Keep a fire extinguisher suitable for gasoline/chemical/ electrical fires nearby.

 Don’t connect or disconnect any test equipment while the ignition is on or the engine is running.

 Keep the scan tool dry, clean, free from oil/water or grease. Use a mild detergent on a clean cloth to clean the outside of the scan tool, when necessary.

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 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:

2

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.

3

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:

1Misfire

2Fuel

System

3Comprehensive 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. Thes

4

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

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

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 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,

5

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

Power-train 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 can not turn the MIL off until 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

6

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 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.

6.1 Read Codes

Reading Codes can be done 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

36

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 fault occurs.

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 considered serious yet. Pending Codes will

not turn on the malfunction indicator lamp (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 computer until the

appropriate monitor for each DTC has determined that the

malfunction is no longer present and is not commanding the

MIL on. Permanent DTC shall be stored in non-volatile

memory and may not be erased by any diagnostic services or

by disconnecting power to ECU.

6.5Retrieving 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

compliance to a state emissions program.

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. Times for

reset vary depending on 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.

“OK” -- Indicates that a particular monitor being checked has completed its diagnostic testing.

“INC” -- Indicates that a particular monitor being checked has

not completed its diagnostic testing.

“N/A” -- The monitor is not supported on that vehicle.

48

1) Use the UP/DOWN scroll button to select I/M Readiness from

Diagnostic Menu and press OK button. (Figure 6.3)

6.7 On-Board Monitor Test

The On-Board Monitor Test is useful after servicing or after

erasing a vehicle‟s control module memory. The On-Board

Monitor Test for non-CAN-equipped vehicles retrieves and

displays test results for emission-related power train components

and systems that are not continuously monitored. The On-Board

Monitor Test for CAN-equipped vehicles retrieves and displays

test results for emission-related power train components and

systems that are and are not continuously monitored. Test and

components IDs are determined by the vehicle manufacturer.

In this test, there are typically a minimum value, a maximum value, and a current value for each monitor. By comparing the current value

52

with the minimum and maximum value, the scan tool will determine if it is OK.

1) Use the UP/DOWN scroll button to select On-Board Monitor

Test from Diagnostic Menu and press the OK button. (Figure

7. Oil Reset

7.1. General Information

The Engine Oil Life System calculates when to change the engine

oil and filter based on vehicle use. An oil change is required

whenever indicated by the display and according to the

recommended maintenance schedule. Whenever the oil is

changed, reset the system so it can calculate when the next oil

change is required. If a situation occurs where the oil is changed

prior to a service indicator being turned on, also reset the

system.

IMPORTANT: Always reset the engine oil life to 100% after

every oil change.

NOTE: All required work must be carried out before the

service indicators are reset. Failure to do so may result in

incorrect service values and cause DTCs to be stored by the

relevant control module.
