Safety Precautions and Warnings
To prevent personal injury or damage to vehicles and/or the scantool, read this instruction manual first and observe the followingsafety precautions at a minimum whenever working on a vehicle:
 
Always perform automotive testing in a safe environment.
 
Wear safety eye protection that meets ANSI standards.
 
Keep clothing, hair, hands, tools, test equipment, etc. away fromall moving or hot engine parts.
 
Operate the vehicle in a well ventilated work area: Exhaust gasesare poisonous.
 
Put blocks in front of the drive wheels and never leave the vehicleunattended while running tests.
 
Use extreme caution when working around the ignition coil,distributor cap, ignition wires and spark plugs. These componentscreate hazardous voltages when the engine is running.
 
Put the transmission in PARK (for automatic transmission) or  NEUTRAL (for manual transmission) and make sure the parking brake is engaged.
 
Keep a fire extinguisher suitable for gasoline/chemical/electricalfires nearby.
 
Don’t connect or disconnect any test equipment while the ignitionis on or the engine is running.
 
Keep the scan tool dry, clean, free from oil/water or grease. Use amild detergent on a clean cloth to clean the outside of the scan tool,when necessary.

General Information
2.1
 
On-Board Diagnostics (OBD) II
The first generation of On-Board Diagnostics (called OBD I) wasdeveloped by the California Air Resources Board (ARB) andimplemented in 1988 to monitor some of the emission controlcomponents on vehicles. As technology evolved and the desire toimprove the On-Board Diagnostic system increased, a new generation of On-Board Diagnostic system was developed. This second generation of On-Board Diagnostic regulations is called "OBD II".The OBD II system is designed to monitor emission control systemsand key engine components by performing either continuous or  periodic tests of specific components and vehicle conditions. When a problem is detected, the OBD II system turns on a warning lamp (MIL)on the vehicle instrument panel to alert the driver typically by the phrase of “Check Engine” or “Service Engine Soon”. The system willalso store important information about the detected malfunction so thata technician can accurately find and fix the problem. Here belowfollow three pieces of such valuable information:
1)
 
Whether the Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) iscommanded 'on' or 'off';2)
 
Which, if any, Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) are stored;3)
 
Readiness Monitor status.
2.2
 
Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs)
OBD II Diagnostic Trouble Codes are codes that are stored by theon-board computer diagnostic system in response to a problem foundin the vehicle. These codes identify a particular problem area and areintended to provide you with a guide as to where a fault might beoccurring within a vehicle. OBD II Diagnostic Trouble Codes consistof a five-digit alphanumeric code. The first character, a letter,identifies which control system sets the code. The other four characters,all numbers, provide additional information on where the DTCoriginated and the operating conditions that caused it to set. Here below is an example to illustrate the structure of the digits:
