(OBD) “On-board diagnostics” is an automotive term, this refers to a vehicle’s self-diagnostic and reporting capability. OBD systems give the vehicle owner or repair technician access to the status of the various vehicle sub-systems. The amount of diagnostic information available via OBD has varied widely since its introduction in the early 1980s’ versions of on-board vehicle computers. Early versions of OBD would simply illuminate a malfunction indicator light should a problem be detected but would not provide any information as to the nature of the problem. These days we use OBD implementations as a standardised digital communications port to provide real-time data in addition to a standardised series of (DTCs) “Diagnostic trouble codes”.
There are 3 different categories in which data / equipment are divided into:
- Information from the software – from a book or CD / DVD.
- This one will only give you data to use and has limited functions like technical information / services specs and data etc.
- Interface cables that get connected from a PC / laptop to your vehicle.
- This one will do most diagnostic functions information via PC / Laptop. It connects to the vehicle.
- A Diagnostic tool scanner that has its own software built in.
- It is free standing and can diagnose faults and erase faults on vehicles, connects to vehicle.
- Different makes of vehicles use different connectors to connect to the vehicles plug.
