When troubleshooting On-Board Diagnostics (OBD II) vehicles, the intelligent tester (complying with SAE J1987) must be connected to the Data Link Connector 3 (DLC3) of the vehicle. Various data in the vehicle's Engine Control Module (ECM) can then be read.

OBD II regulations require that the vehicle's on-board computer illuminate the Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) on the instrument panel when the computer detects a malfunction in:

c. The computer itself

In addition, the applicable Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) prescribed by SAE J2012 are recorded in the ECM memory. If the malfunction does not recur in 3 consecutive trips, the MIL turns off automatically but the DTCs remain recorded in the ECM memory.

To check the DTCs, connect the intelligent tester to the DLC3. The tester displays DTCs, freeze frame data, and a variety of engine data. The DTCs and freeze frame data can be erased with the tester. In order to enhance OBD function on vehicles and develop the Off-Board diagnosis system, the Control Area Network (CAN) communication is used in this system. It minimizes the gap between technician skills and vehicle technology. CAN is a network which uses a pair of data transmission lines that span multiple ECUs and sensors. It allows high speed communication between the systems and simplifies the wire harness connections. The CAN Vehicle Interface Module (CAN VIM) must be connected with the intelligent tester to display any information from the ECM. The intelligent tester and ECM uses CAN communication signals to communicate. Connect the CAN VIM between the intelligent tester and DLC3.
