Automotive Diagnostic Systems by Keith McCord Understanding OBD-I & OBD-II


Automotive Diagnostic Systems by Keith McCord understanding OBD-I and OBD-II. The electronic control unit and other electronic controls are connected to every major system of a car built within the past 15 years, yet when there is a problem or an error code, many do not know how to go about fixing the problem. With this book, an affordable hand held scanner, and other common tools, the average enthusiast can diagnose and fix most common problems. In this American book Keith McCord recounts the history of automotive onboard diagnostic systems and creation of the rudimentary OBD I systems and the development as well as the evolution of OBD II. Currently, OBD-II (OnBoard Diagnostic II) is the standard of the industry, and this book provides a thorough explanation of this system. It details its main features, capabilities, and characteristics. It shows how to access the port connector on the car, the serial data protocols, and what the serial data means. To understand the diagnostic codes, the numbering system is defined and the table of common diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) is shown. But most importantly, McCord provides a thorough process for troubleshooting problems, tracing a problem to its root, explaining why DTCs may not lead to the source of the underlying problem, and ultimately resolving the problem. Chapters are; Introduction to on board diagnostics OBD-II standardisation The OBD-II data interface Scan tool interfaces Diagnostic trouble codes Freeze frame data Emissions tests and system monitors Four stroke engine cycle OBD-II and the Otto engine model Controlling fuel systems Dynamic fuel correction Engine ignition controls Misfires Sensors Oxygen sensors Appendix A using a volt ohm meter Appendic B Generic OBD-II DTC codes Appendix C Manufacturer specific OBD-II DTC codes
