  • Page 24: Introduction To On-Board Diagnostics

    Getting Started Introduction to On-Board Diagnostics OBD I The original on-board diagnostics (OBD I) lacked consistency in communication and interface while allowing different interpretations among vehicle manufacturers. Ford and Chrysler used different types of engine control computers and data link connectors ( DLCs), and GM varied the trouble codes and communication protocols from year-to-year.
  • Page 25: Sae Publications

    Getting Started 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.

  • Page 29 Getting Started MECS MECS vehicles (1988 –1995) use either a 6-pin (with pigtail) or a 17-pin DLC. Use the MECS 6-pin adapter cable kit (CP9131) for both configurations. The MECS adapter cable kit includes jumper wires to connect to the MECS 17-pin DLC. The MECS adapter cable kit is optional and must be purchased separately.

This is not the self-test input (STI) pigtail. Connect the pigtail to the BLACK STI connector located farther back on the wire harness.
  • Page 31: Gm Historic

    Getting Started GM Historic Prior to1996, most GM vehicles used the 12-pin Assembly Line Diagnostic Link (ALDL) DLC. The GM ALDL cable kit includes the ALDL adapter and cigarette lighter power cable. This adapter cable is included with the Scan Tool. In 1994 and 1995, certain GM vehicles used the J1962 (OBD II) DLC, but are not OBD II compliant.
  • Page 32: Chrysler Historic

    Getting Started Chrysler Historic Prior to 1996, most Chrysler vehicles used either the serial communications interface (SCI) or LH DLC.

  • Page 227 Appendix C – Glossary A/C: Air Conditioner A/D: Analog to Digital A/F: Air/Fuel ratio. The proportion of air and fuel delivered to the cylinder for combustion. For example, an A/F ratio of 14:1 denotes 14 times as much air as fuel in the mixture.
  • Page 228 Glossary BCM: Body Control Module Boost Control Solenoid: A solenoid that is energized by the PCM, in order to control turbo/supercharger boost pressure. Brake Switch Signal: An input signal to the PCM indicating that the brake pedal is being pressed. This signal is typically used to disengage Cruise Control systems and Torque Converter Clutch (TCC) solenoids.

  • Page 230 Glossary EFI: Electronic Fuel Injection. Any system where a computer controls fuel delivery to the engine by using fuel injectors. EGR: Exhaust Gas Recirculation. The PCM uses the EGR system to recirculate exhaust gases back into the intake manifold to reduce emissions. EGR is used only during warm engine cruise conditions.

  • Page 232 Glossary MAP: Manifold Absolute Pressure (sensor). Measures intake manifold vacuum or pressure and sends a frequency or voltage signal (depending on sensor type) to the PCM. This gives the PCM information on engine load for control of fuel delivery, spark advance, and EGR flow. MAT: Manifold Air Temperature (sensor).

  • Page 236 Glossary Warm-up Cycle: Warm-up cycle is when the engine coolant temperature rises at least 40 degrees above that at engine start up. WOT: Wide-Open Throttle. The vehicle operating condition brought about when the throttle is completely (or nearly) open. The PCM typically delivers extra fuel to the engine and de-energizs the A/C compressor at this time for acceleration purposes.
