On-Board Diagnostics
Overview

Making Sense of On-Board Diagnostics


When your vehicle's "Check Engine" light comes on, it is signaling a possible problem affecting overall performance, fuel
efficiency and/or emissions. The light is triggered by the vehicle's On-Board computer system, which monitors a vast range of
ignition, fuel system, engine, and other operating parameters.
On-board computer system protocols have become increasingly sophisticated over the years. Most pre-1996 light-duty vehicles
sold in the U.S. feature a standard known as "OBD I", while vehicles sold domestically from 1996 until today typically comply
with the "OBD II" standard.
A new protocol - known as "CAN" (for Controller Area Network) - is now being introduced in some vehicle models and in 2008
will become mandatory for all vehicles sold domestically.
Regardless of the protocol used in your vehicle, when the "Check Engine" light comes on, you need to know:
1) Why the light is on
2) How to fix the problem
3) How to turn the light off when the problem is solved

Solution: Actron
Three common and very useful tools from Actron can assist you in answering each of the diagnostic questions cited above:
A Code Scanner reads diagnostic trouble codes generated by the vehicles OBD system. Codes are displayed on the vehicles
dashboard and/or identified through audio prompts. It is important to select a Code Scanner designed for use with your vehicle
make and model. (See the accompanying chart to select the correct tool.)
A Code Reader can be used to read and erase diagnostic trouble codes. The Actron CP9135 OBD II AutoScanner is an OBD II
Code Reader, i.e., it reads and displays OBD II generic codes and their definitions. It can be used for all OBD II-compliant
vehicles.
A Scan Tool can be used to read and erase trouble codes, display live diagnostic data, and perform other tests allowed by the
vehicle maker. Actrons CP9145 SUPER AutoScanner is an OBD II Scan Tool; it reads both OBD II generic and manufacturerspecific codes and is available with optional cables that allow it to read trouble codes on older (OBD I) vehicles.
