Onboard Diagnostics II (OBD-II) is a standardized system that onboard computers in cars and trucks use for self-diagnostics and reporting. Unlike earlier, OEM-specific OBD-I systems, OBD-II systems use the same communication protocols, code designations, and connectors from one manufacturer to another. This allows a single OBD-II scanner to provide access to the data that these systems are capable of providing across all makes and models of vehicles produced since 1996, which was the first model year that OBD-II was required across the board.
Since OBD-II systems are standardized, OBD-II scanners are relatively simple to use. They all use the same connector, which is defined by SAE J1962. Basic scan tools function by simply inserting a universal plug into the OBD-II diagnostic connector in a vehicle.
