Xtool U485 Vehicle Coverage FAQs:
Does My Car Have OBD-II?
All cars and light trucks built and sold in the United States after January 1, 1996 were
required to be OBD II equipped. In general, this means all 1996 model year cars and
light trucks are compliant, even if built in late 1995.
Two factors will show if your vehicle is definitely OBD II equipped:
1) There will be an OBD II connector located under or around the dashboard
2) There will be a note on a sticker or nameplate under the hood: "OBD II compliant".
Where is the connector located?
The connector must be located within three feet of the driver and must not require any tools to be revealed. Look under the dash and behind ashtrays.
The Three Flavors of OBD II While the parameters, or readings, required by OBD II regulations are uniform, the auto manufacturers had some latitude in the communications protocol
they used to transmit those readings to scanners.
Naturally, each felt they had the one true way, so we have three different OBD II communications protocols in use.
What Communications Protocol does my vehicle use?
As a rule of thumb, G M cars and light trucks use SAE J1850 VPW (Variable Pulse Width Modulation). Chrysler products and all European and most Asian imports use ISO 9141 circuitry.
Fords use SAE J1850 PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) communication patterns.
There are some variations among captive imports such as the Ca dill ac Catera, a German Opel derivative,which uses the European ISO 9141 protocol.
On 1996 and later vehicles, you can tell which protocol is used by examining the OBD II connector:
J1850 VPW-The connector should have metallic contacts in pins 2, 4, 5, and 16, but not 10.
ISO 9141-2--The connector should have metallic contacts in pins 4, 5, 7, 15, and 16.
J1850 PWM--The connector should have metallic contacts in pins 2, 4, 5, 10, and 16.
